This is a rarity for me as usually I am taking out the seams to increase the size, but I purchased a size 16 Gloria V jean as the 14 was too tight, but this size is toooo big in the seat area and waist. I would like to keep them and resize them. Any hints on doing this without taking the pair apart ?

picture please. If the sides are not double seammed that probley be the place to take in. the waist band I would take the belt loop off the back temparly. Cut a waist band there and sew the band there so the belt loop hides the sewing. I do this for all my customers that need the waist taken in.
hope this helps
