View Full Version : Breeches good news, bad news, question

Dec. 25, 2010, 10:19 PM

Good news: I received a pair of Cavallo Championesse breeches for Xmas. I knew my usual size was too small and the gifter ordered me a size larger.

Bad news: Too big in the waist, fit everywhere else perfectly.

Question: Can a tailor take them in? There is a seam in the back running from waist to crotch but the full seat part complicates things.

I'm not sure a return is possible...

I had a pair of full seat breeches taken in (also a gift ;)) -- they were taken in on the sides, not the middle. (BF's mom is a pro! :)).

Wash them a couple of times before you do anything... I found that the waists shrank...!
