Does the lining cover the waist band also?

If not – check to see how much fabric is “folded in” at the seams. This will tell you how much fabric is there to be let out!

I just took a pair of FIs dress pants in to see if they could be taken out and it could only be taken out less than a half an inch and so it wasn’t worth it!

Good Luck!

We’ve all done it – its so frustrating just to see them sitting unworn in your closet!

I am not sure…like ms martin said it depends on what the seam allowance is….I too our a pair of FIs pants a few months ago, but was only about to take out about in inch….it really depends on how the pants were put together…sometimes the waist band is one solid strip others it is stitched together just like the rest of the pants.
