waist band on rtw skirt

I have a really nice cotton RTW skirt. The waist is about less that an inch es to tight. The skirt has a fly front closure and waist band with inside b utton and D-ring self belt. I was thinking I'd remove the belt and add a wi de elastic that closes in front to give my the little extra breathing room I need. Any suggestions or comments.

Can you get any more out of the centre back seam of the waistband ? or perhaps unlike men's trousers this item doesn't have the extra built in.

ches to tight. The skirt has a fly front closure and waist band with inside button and D-ring self belt. I was thinking I'd remove the belt and add a wide elastic that closes in front to give my the little extra breathing roo m I need. Any suggestions or comments.
Sadly there is no extra fabric. It's a 1 piece band. I was also thinking th at if I cut "V" wedges of elastic and inserted them in the side back of the existing band it might help. What do you think?

Barbara, You did reply, It came to my email address. I wasn't sure who it w as from. I didn't know your last name. Thanks for posting again. . What mak es it difficult is that there are no seams in the waist band. The other thi ng is that the skirt is black and adding a color makes it harder to ear any top I have, unless I considered beige.

I've decided that I will basically use the method Barbara describes using b lack elastic rather than fabric. That waay I have some expansion space in c ase I overeat at Thanksgiving. Since I generally wear this skirt with a swe ater Through the fall and winter I don't have to worry about it showing.

I like the idea of elastic in the back of skirts or pants and I have opened the back seam and inserted a piece of cloth with enclosed elastic in pants. I insert the top and let it drape over the top of the pants to look dressy, same with skirts., or wear it with a sweater. Good luck with this! Barbara in SC
