It’s been a good year since I last fit into my favorite skinnies, but I’m getting SO CLOSE! Here are the facts: I can put them on, but I can’t button them up without a seriously uncomfortable muffin top. That’s not putting me down, though. I just remedied that.
With two minutes, my sewing machine & 3 1/2 inches of bias tape, I can wear my skinnies again. They just button in a different loop. I was getting really annoyed with scouring the house for a sturdy-enough rubber band or dealing with the muffin top that I did this.
Just take 3-4 inches of bias tape (1/2 inch, double fold) & sew a loop onto the edge of your waistband, adjacent to the button hole. You’ll want to pin the same side of each end onto the denim so it creates the kind of loop pictured above. Sew & wear! Time yourself. I betcha you can do this in less than 1 minute.
