    • Adjust the excess fabric until it is laying as flat as you can get it.

Conclusão

To change the size again you can use a looser or tighter elastic band. If a more permanent fix is required, sewing in place of the safety pins is a possible, but more challenging fix. Please note that because of where the cuts are made you will not be able to alter the size drastically the second time you alter them.
