I just recently bought a jacket that is one of the old
70s style Vietnam type army jackets but this isn't a
normal one, it was made somewhere else and the back of it
has little strips of elastic on the bottom sides to
tighten it up when it's all buttoned. I was wondering if
there was a way to get rid of the elastic inside those
and have it looser and not be so tight fitting on the
bottom. I don't dress with the top ending at my belt
area and would like it to go down and I think removing
the elastic would help. I have very little sewing
experience and was wondering if there is any advice on
how to get it out?
Hard to know without seeing it, but I'll hazard a guess. You can
probably open the casing, and just cut the elastic (leave it in
place), then stitch the casing closed.
