This is great.  I'm finding myself doing more alterations than I care to, and this diagram is worth it's weight in digital doubloons.  :)  Thanks for posting.

I cant find pants that fit any more. jeans at Walmart are way too low in the waste and wide in the waist. Thank you for the help. I dont have time even though I know pretty much what to do. Take the waistbank apart in the back and put in a tuck in the band and the body. But Im afraid they refuse to make jeans anymore that dont show your bellybutton. That you just cant fix unless youre making them from scratch. Thank you for the help.
