Yes, of course, other things are worse, but badly fitting pants are pretty awful! That, my friends, is why I love elastic-waist pants. Pants with an elastic waist stay in place all day and are always comfortable. They create a smooth waistline with no lumps, bumps, or fly buttons poking out. Sure, you might prefer a traditional waistband if you are gong to tuck your top in or wear a crop top, but most of the time our waistband stays hidden.
Why not be comfortable? Any pants made with a stretch woven can be easily adapted into an elastic waist style. Your elastic should stretch easily, but needs enough heft to stand the test of time. In my experience these pants stay in place best if they fit right at the natural waist, but feel free to experiment.
Check the width of your elastic. Measure the band against your jeans. For a demonstration of what goes wrong when you attach a band that is longer than the waist of the jeans, wait till my later pictures! Do as I say, not as I do. Sew the short ends of the waistband together to make a loop.
Fold in half lengthways and iron. Wrap the elastic around your waist snugly, and cut to the desired length, remembering to add an extra inch or so to join it together.
Sew the short ends of the elastic together to make a loop. Now that the elastic is sewn in, it will never roll or flip around inside your waistband! Re-fold the long edge of the waistband. With your pants inside out, pin the folded waistband to the pants. The zigzag seam should be facing out away from the pants , so that it will be hidden on the inside of your finished pants.
I use about 8 pins, but you can use more or less if you choose! If you want to get fancy here, you can play with where the waistband is stretched more or less.
With all three raw edges lined up, serge the waistband onto the pants. Narrower and shorter could work too. Press the seam down, away from the waistband. You have a stretch waistband! Now, see how mine is wrinkly and not smooth? Super comfy when sitting or standing, and nice and smooth even under this bamboo jersey top.
They also have a faux fly, if you prefer that look! I hope it gives you some inspiration to try out elastic-waisted pants. Gillian is a elementary teacher who loves to sneak sewing into her lessons as often as possible!
