Sew all the way around, leaving an open space to insert an elastic band.
Connect a safety pin to the end of the elastic to help you push it through the waist band
Sew the elastic ends to a scrap piece of ribbon or fabric.
Zigzag back and forth a couple of times.
This takes away from the small bulge you get when the elastic ends are sewn together.
Sew the waist band closed.
I added small bows, buttons, and rhinestones at the bottom of each leg.
Be creative and have fun!
I'd love to see what you create with this tutorial!
