Trouser Alterations: Slimming
I've got a pair of suit trousers that I want slimming/narrowing down in the overall cut of the trouser (not just leg opening). So basically, have the legs reduced evenly from top to bottom to retain the original shape, just narrower.
What I wanted to ask is, is this overall slimming down classed the same as tapering? I was under the impression tapering is just narrowing from the knee down, or narrowing the opening of the trousers.
Whereas what I require is a general slimming down of the trouser (not just at the very bottom). Is this still classed as tapering or should I be asking the tailor for a general slimming of the trouser?
Hope this makes sense - I'm not after a "carrot shaped" effect, just a general slimmer silhouette - which invariably involves narrowing of the bottom but also nearer the top of the trouser as well. Anyone who is au fait with alterations and things, would be grateful for your comments.
