    soft elastic

    Posted by wendy jago on 15th May 2021

    I make a lot of skirts and trousers, and always use this soft elastic instead of waistbands. I hate an unyielding feeling around my middle. This super stuff in several colours works with most fabrics I use and makes it easy to make garments without a pattern as well as those with a gathered waist or requiring a channel for elastic. Much neater!
    [This review also applies to the white and red elastic, so I'm not going to retype it!]. Haven't tried the blue yet.]

    supersoft waistbands

    Lovely flexible elastic makes skirts and trousers easy to construct without having to install zips. Just cut side of garment so you have enough leeway for hips, cut elastic to fit your waist plus about two inches for overlap, sew overlap. Then gather, or if you're brave, just pin the top of the garment evenly to waistband elastic and stretch elastic as you sew. As you allow elastic to contract again, the slack gets taken up and bingo, there's the top done.
