How to take trousers?

It happens that we buy the things we like, and it turns out that they do not fit the figure. If you do not want to take it back to the store and donate the thing, you can try to take it down. Today we will talk about how to take in trousers. We decided to explain qualitatively in a popular language how to take in trousers on our own and at no extra cost.

The way how to take in trousers

I would like to immediately draw your attention to the fact that if you absolutely can not sew, it is better not to take on this business on your own. No, high-tech sewing is useless here, but an inexperienced seam, moreover, it is wrongly planned, will certainly lead to the fact that the trousers will have to be given away in the studio or thrown away. The third is not given, because they will be skewed, therefore, spoiled.

Having agreed with all the risks and being confident in ourselves, we will continue to talk about how to take in trousers.

There is a way to sew trousers in the hips without reshaping them. But it works, if you need to take trousers in no more than two sizes.In the event that you need to take the pants in three sizes and more, you will have to unzip and repaint them, which is very, very laborious and requires some special skills.

Ultimately, we came to the conclusion that if the pants can be sutured without reshaping, then it is necessary to know another aspect. How many tricks in this uncomplicated case! Remember: you need to take trousers in the hips evenly from both seams - side and inner. A mistake of many beginners can be considered the fact that they incorrectly suture pants, only with the outer seam. Yes, undoubtedly, this is much faster, but after such a fit your pants will surely twist and will not only look unnatural, but also become uncomfortable for wearing.

You can challenge it - well, no, you need to take a little bit! Do not worry, they say, will not happen! Of course not, but if you need to take a little bit, you first need to determine where to take it from. If the owner of the pants just lost weight, then it is necessary to take in the inner seam, for example. After all, my legs lose weight from the "inner" side :)

And what if you need to take the pants to the waist? It's a little easier here. It is best to distribute the excess fabric along the side and middle seam, you can also add darts.

Algorithm, how to take the pants right

So, if you are going to take the pants off, try to follow these instructions:

  1. Determine the location of the lash. Put the pants inside out and pin the extra material with a pin.
  2. Strut pants in the desired area.
  3. Baste on the new lines approximate seam.
  4. If you like, proceed to step 5. If not, repeat steps 1-3.
  5. Wrap and stitch a new seam.
  6. Iron the pants, they are ready to wear!

I hope you understand how to take the pants in the hips.
