Pin the joined elastic around wrong side of waist, lining up edge of elastic with raw edge of waistband and matching up quartered elastic points with quartered points on waistline e.g. front and back side seams and crotch seams. We recommend the elastic join sits at the middle back seam. So as to avoid too much bulk at the seam where this join is, when lining up joined seam of elastic with a seam on pant, you can move the elastic join to just left or right of the seam and adjust your other quarter points accordingly.
