Title: Device for adjusting the width of the waistband of a skirt or a pair of trousers

Abstract: An apparatus for adjusting the width of the waistband of a skirt or a pair of trousers, includes a U-shaped clip which slides onto the waistband perpendicularly to the longitudinal direction of the waistband. The U-shaped clip has two limbs which are interconnected on the top sides thereof and which run substantially parallel to each other. The waistband is arranged in a fold formed by the waist band passing by the clip, substantially parallel thereto, first to one limb of the clip. The waistband loops around the first limb before running back in an opposite direction, between the two limbs of the clip, to the second limb. The waistband further loops around the second limb before finally being guided back in the opposite direction. Each side of the clip is also provided with an arm which extends vertically. The arms are provided near the plane defined by the clip and fit on a respective outer flank of the fold on a side facing away from the U-shaped clip.
