The easiest way to narrow down your jeans is to wash them in hot, not lower than 70 degree water. However, the effect of such action would be short-lived: after you walk around in your jeans a few hours, sit down in them a couple of times, they will become wider.
To make jeans more narrow once and for all, just a bit to take in them. This can be done in any Studio, but if you have a sewing machine, and you at least theoretically know how to manage it, try to narrow down your jeans yourself. Pretty easy to take in jeansthat have inseam (walking on the inner part of the thighs) are stitched from the inside. To do this, put on your jeans and see how you need to narrow it. Pull the fabric on the inside seam in the hip area and kill the "tuck" with a pin, not to forget how to take in pants. You can also use centimeters or a ruler and mark on them the desired size.
Remove the jeans, turn them inside out and place on a hard surface on the floor or on the table. Remove the pin, take the thread with a needle and keen seam parallel to the inner seam of the jeans at the desired distance from it. Remove the jeans and try them on, if the size suits you, then go ahead and stitch the new seam on the machine, cut off the excess fabric and make for the edge of the blanket stitch or treat the fabric with a serger.
If the inseam on the jeans decorative, that is quite thick, the fabric is folded several times and stitched two parallel seams, it is not necessary to take in jeans the previous method. To narrow these jeans, you have to strut. Fight back of my pants waistband and strut them on the outer side seams from top to bottom. Cut the excess fabric from both sides again and stitch the leg seam either plain or decorative. Belt you will also have to be reduced. Turn it, fold in half, right sides inside, and make the seam parallel to the fold line. The distance from the seam to the fold line must equal the width you just cut off the extra fabric on each side. This is a more laborious process, but if you do the job carefully and correctly, the result will exceed your expectations.
To take in jeans is a thread of the color that the jeans were stitched originally.
Jeans are not to become suddenly, you are great, buy them tight. Of course, it is not necessary to take absolutely uncomfortable pants that are not fastened at the waist. It is enough if jeans are just a little cramped after a day or two of active wear fabric stretched and they will fit well.
