How to Alter the Waist on Pants

"This is a tutorial on a common alteration for women's pants. I describe in detail how to take in the waist and seat of this pant. I show how I mark the garment with chalk, and what techniques I use to make the garment look like it as never altered. I describe how to "stitch in the ditch", how to take in a waistband with multiple views, how to properly remove and sew back the belt loops and garment tags. I think it is a very helpful tutorial for someone who's a mid level sewer, and wants to learn how to alter clothing."
