My mother in law bought me a beautiful pair of corduroy pants and they fit perfectly everywhere except the waist. So, my question is how do I take the waist in a little..

Thanks for helping..

Welcome to the Sew-What's-New discussion boards! :smile:
When I was in high school, we could only get our Levi's in guy's sizes, so we used to put a couple of darts in the back to bring in the waist. I wasn't much of a sew-er back then, but it did the job. :wink:
Take care,
