Waistbands are a basic element in garment sewing. At its core, a waistband's sole purpose is to secure a piece of clothing to the waistline. However, as Susan Khalje explains in this video tutorial from an upcoming season of It's Sew Easy, waistbands can be so much more.
Based on "Build a Better Waistband," Threads #165 (February/March 2013), Susan demonstrates how to create durable, comfortable, and expertly finished waistbands with internal ribbon stays and securely stitched fasteners. With the right tools and couture techniques, you'll get this fundamental component to achieve its real purpose.
Follow along with an excerpt from the original article, and watch Susan's other video tutorials where she shows you how to attach hooks, eyes, and snaps, and even sew a thread bar.
