Step 5 Waistband

Stitch side seams of waistband, leaving inside half of one seam open, to insert elastic. Press ­seam allow­ances open. Mark centre front on waistband. Fold waistband in half, wrong side in. Press fold lightly and unfold. Turn in ends of twill tape (finished length = 6 cm (23/8 ins)). Mark centre. Stitch tape to outer waistband 2.5 cm (1 in) below fold, matching centres. Insert eyelets 2 cm (3/4 in) to each side of centre front. Fold waistband in half again. Stitch lengthwise edges together to upper skirt edge, stretch­ed to fit. Pull elastic into waistband. Sew ends together to a circumference of 72 – 76 – 80 – 84 – 88 cm (281/2 – 30 – 311/2 – 33 – 343/4 ins). Pull cord into waistband, through seam opening, and pass ends out through eyelets. Slip cord stoppers over ends of cord. Knot ends. Sew seam opening closed.
