My variation: convert /dev/sda1 to a PV, extend the existing VG,

__pvmove the LV (most of it) into the new PV__

then expand the LV, expand the filesystem.

The advantage is that the first part of the filesystem (which is
now containing files) will be moved almost entirely onto the
initial part of the disk, which is faster.
