JEANS SKIRT ALTERATION: Applied to jeans that fit too big in the waistband area. I found this skirt while shopping, and I immediately fell in love with it. It was too big, but I bought it because it’s hard to find an excellent modest denim skirt and the pearl detail is so adorable. It adds a sweet feminine touch to the classic denim skirt.

1-Measure the skirt that’s too big across the waist,
2-Next, take a Skirt that fits you and measures it across the waist.
3-Using a seam ripper, unpick the stitches from the waistband. How far you unstitch, depends on how much you’re going to take off the waistband. I usually unstitch an inch or two on each side of the waistband.
4-Flip the waistband inside out, as shown below.
Pin and sew as much as you need to. I took off 1″ from each side.
Here’s a closer look. After you pin and sew, trim off the excess fabric and turn it back inside out.


5-Once you flip both sides inside out again.
At this point, If your skirt is too big in the hip area also, sew off as much as you need to. Stop sewing after the hip area, unless you want to tighten the entire skirt down to the hem.
I didn’t mess with the hip area on the pearl denim skirt because the pearls were in the way.
6-Then, I pinned and sewed the waistband back in place. (As shown by the pink dots)
That’s it! You’ve got a new favorite denim skirt. 🙂
I paired my new denim skirt with feminine prints and details.
