I used a jersey knit (real stretchy) fabric for them.
|2.This is just a picture showing my cut out pants and the original pair.|
|3. Once the pants are cut out, lay them beside eachother to measure the width of the waist. These ones are 10.5" on each side. I will cut the waist band 2" shorter then this.|
|6. Fold in half (right sides together) [pin together if you'd like] and trim the edges.|
|7.sew the center back seam.|
|8.Fold in half right side out, and baste the bottom edges together.|
|9.Now it should look like this :) Trim where needed if you'd like.|
|12. Flip right side out and stitch along the waist band, you could do a fun decorative stitch, or just a straight stitch, what ever you chose.|
|13. VOILLA!! pretty waist band!..now all that is left is to hem up the pants, and put them on!!!|
|14. They Fit, They Fit!!! and have a nice comfy waist band :)|
