Tapering the legs of jeans to make them look skinnier is possible with an alteration service in Singapore. The extra fabric on the tailored jeans may be trimmed away or sewn inside if there’s not too much of it.

If your jeans are slightly too big at the waist, you can take in the waistband either on the back or the sides. An alteration service can easily tighten your jeans with a minimized risk of altering the form of your garments.

When a garment is too small, it’s usually possible to increase it slightly if there is enough fabric left at the seam. This extra fabric is called a seam allowance which determines whether a garment can get any larger.

A tailor can take the waist in or out easily and give your trousers a better fit. However, it’s not advisable to take trousers in or out by more than 1-1.5 inches to the waist as it could alter its style and form.

The waist of a pair of pants can be let in or taken out 1-1.5 inches or in some cases, 2-3 inches. Anything more than that and the pockets at the back will either be too close or overlap one another.

Pants can be easily downsized than upsized. However, there are a few limitations to it. For instance, if the pants are more than six sizes too big, altering them may cause the loss of the pockets. So, as a rule of thumb, buy clothes that are 1-1.5 sizes up.
