Whether it's a growth or weight issue, often times clothes need adjustment at the waist. This guide is about adjusting waistbands.

This works well! When I was pregnant a few months a long I had to go to a funeral for my ex's cousin and my only black pants didn't fit! I actually used a hair band : ) People pay for this at Walmart.
Great idea. Just make sure that you wear long shirts. I'm thing Deluth Trading Co.'s Long Tail Tee.
I just lost weight and pants were so loose as to be uncomfortable and not fit right. Not using a sewing machine nor hand stitching the waistband, I hand sewed a button with shank to the waistband at the point that would tighten as desired.
Then I added a short chain (like a key chain) looped around the new button, twisted the chain and slid it over the original button, forming another loop/"S". This little fix made the fit about 2.5" tighter. The elastic hair bands "give" or stretch to much for tightening. Try it out.

I read this as 'Pants - ex Panda'. Wake up, Marg!
If your trouser or skirt waistband is a bit too tight, tie a pony tail band to the button hole and loop it onto the button to fasten.
To extend the waist a little bit on a pair of pants, take a rubber band and attach it to a button hole. Bring the rubber band through the hole and bring it back through its own "loop" to secure it. The button you your pants will now go through the loop on the rubber band.
A slightly stretchy shoelace at least 12 inches larger than your waist is a great way to cinch up a slightly sagging waistline.
