taking down the waist a few inches how would i do that? full instructions please :}
Why would you want to?
Ultra low-rise?? Just get rid of the top part, and tie each piece of leg around same with a piece of string.
Big problem with doing it yourself is that even though you can trim off the excess material pretty easily, just by having a friend draw the cut-line for you, the waist can't be sewn back on, since it's made for your waist instead of your hips, so it won't be wide enough... So unless you know how to make a new waist to sew into the new hipline, you're kinda screwed.
Ah yes...the zipper. I meant to mention that. Even replacing a zipper on a pair of jeans is a complete mind-"funk" to me...I've done it successfully...once. but you're right...absolutely right. A lot of work. (although I figured with ultra low rise jeans, there'd be no room or reason for pockets, since I would expect the goal would be the view., rather than functionality. )Y'all rally thank ays a rayd bludded merkun ima tell a gal not to try?<wiggles eyebrows suggesively>
Step 1 - Shorten the legs by about 5" Step 2 - Put the jeans on. Stop about 5" lower on your hips than you usually would. Step 3 - Go to the store and buy a real pair of low-rise jeans.
Sitting down is overrated anyway.
Seconded: the obvious answer is scissors, but they wont fit, look good, or stay on...
