|0ne piece of Spotty Lawn length 2m by width 120cm. |
Cut 12 cm min from the length this will become the elastic waistband yoke.
Trim waistband piece to fit around broadest part of hips - size 10 to 12 approx. = 1 meter.
|Sew two ends of yoke piece to make a big loop.|
Sew together two length ends to make a large tube.
Gather fabric at the top of the tube, baste and pin to waistband yoke
|Secure with seam and trim excess fabric - this is where an overlocker pays for its self.|
|Turn over yoke to cover trimmed seam and sew leaving a 2 cm opening |
between start and finish seam to allow elastic to be threaded through.
|Finish with another seam line for strength and an extra row of stitching on the tope edge of yoke |
where fabric was folded. This will help keep the elastic in place.
|Not the best colours to show up seams but if you squint you may be able to see.|
|Thread through elastic and join elastic ends. |
