I have worn jeans all my life. After having a baby I went from a size 10 to a 12. After a lengthy illness, I lost a lot of weight. Now after gaining my weight back, my jeans no longer fit. I kinda got caught in the middle age spread :{

As all of us do, I was so upset over the fact my jeans were way too small in the waist, but fit everywhere else. So I decided to tailor them to fit my figure :}. I bought a yard of stretch denim, cut the sides of my jeans about 4 inches down from the waist, cut the denim 4 inches wide and 6 inches long. Sewed the piece into the splits I had made in the sides of my jeans expanding the waist 1 inch on each side. I left the seams raw. After washing, they frayed a lot and do a good job of hiding the extension that I put in them. Now my jeans fit again, it cost me only for the stretch denim, and boy, are they comfy.
