Attaching the Waistband
Pin the front waistbands with interfacing right sides facing onto the front pant pieces, allowing the front right waistband end to overlap. Pin the left front waistband end onto the under lap. Stitch. Cut the left front waistband 5/8 inch (1.5 cm) next to the line that says “left edge” (a).
Pin the reinforced back left waistband onto the back pant piece. Stitch. Trim seam allowances back to 5mm (1/5 “) , iron into the waistband pieces. Place the front pant pieces right sides facing onto the back pant pieces, pin the remaining side seams and consecutively the side seams of the waistband. Stitch. Fold apart and iron seam allowances.
Pin the latch pieces with interfacing onto the latch pieces without interfacing right sides facing. Stitch, leaving the base edges open. Trim seam allowances, cut in several times at the rounded edge (b).
Turn latch. Pin edges, iron, stitch neatly, allowing 7 mm (about 1/4”). Pin the open latch ends in between the vertical line on the seam allowance of the upper waist band edge.
