    My niece just cut off the waistband even with the zipper. Gave it a raggety edge at the top. Very cute.

    any extra closure at the top? don't trust just a zipper but i've been tempted to do this. maybe a burly hook and eye?

    Yeah...a heavy-duty hook and eye, like the ones you see sewn on the inside of mens' slacks. Or you could sew an elastic loop on one side and a flat button on the other at the inside top.

    I've actually done this with a pair of my jeans. Personally I don't like the hook & eye closure cuz I don't trust them to stay closed, but maybe that's to blame a cheap pair of pants I once had. I just bought some jean buttons from the fabric store, the kind that are actually normally on jeans, the kind you have to hammer in. I had to poke a hole in them to get the top button part through, and I bent the first one, but they came in a pack of 6, so it was alright. Oh yeah, I used 3 of them, to make them into button-up jeans because the zipper pull thingy zipped right off, so I just cut off the zipper altogether and added the buttons... just took a bit of experimenting :)
