What are you most proud of? I'm very proud that I did this type of hemming on jeans which preserved the original hem. Wished I had known about this technique before.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Angela Wolf's class was very helpful. Take your time and do it right. Get more jeans to practice.

I need to know how to make the waistline bigger in a pair of ski pants my husband has. He gained weight!! They have a one piece waistband, no seam at center back. They have velcro tabs at the side waist, but not much room between the top and bottom velcro. I'm thinking of adding elastic between the velcro, but I'm afraid that anything I do is going to be obvious. It's always easier to take in than let out....Do you have any ideas? Love your classes by the way!!
