On the waistband, use a straight pin to mark the length of your original measurement from the side seam.
Sew across the waistband at the location you pinned.
Make sure to remove the pin before sewing and back stitch at the beginning and end so the stitches don't unravel.
Trim the excess fabric with fabric scissors or a rotary cutter.
