Adjustable Waistband

4.3.12

Here's a fairly easy way to get more wear out of your child's pants.  


I picked up a metre of adjustable elastic from Fabricland (you know the ones you've seen in your child's pants with the buttons holes in it).  Add buttons holes & buttons to the inside of the waistband.




Iron it over.




Open the button holes.




Stitch the waistband in place.





Insert the elastic using a safety pin to quite it through the waistband.  Leave a few holes extra before you cut it, so you can expand the waist as necessary.




All done!
