Ready to view???? Wait just one more thing to clarify.....
As I mentioned above the back pants seam is left open. I DO NOT sew the back seam of the pants until after I check the waist measurements and apply the waistband. Then I sew the back seam and waistband in one step, flip over the waistband and sew down. Alot of home sewers are instructed to sew one piece waistbands but as most of you know the back seam of pants is often an area where fit problems occur. I always sew a 2 piece waistband since this is often an area on both men and women's pants that require alteration. You'll find that most high end pants are also constructed in this way. Also, I used the 1 1/4" Ban-roll in Women's Trousers. Remember I blogged about Ban-Roll HERE.
Ok, here's the 2 videos. I hope these are really helpful to you. Please forgive the dark background at times. Next time I'll make sure to have a bit more light.
----Took a short break to go press the waisband over the ban-roll-----
Hope you enjoyed the videos and found them helpful. Let me know what you think!
