Trouser Front (Part 4 of 4) - Waistband

The waistband is interlined for extra support. Stablise the pants waistline by stitching down any pocket bags or zip fly.

Press the waistband seam allowances first for easy application. The narrower half of the waistband is attached to the FRONT of the waistline, stitched in the ditch and turned over. The wider half of the waistband is now on the wrong side of the garment and stitched in place from the front of the garment, (understitched).

Remember that the seam allowances on the width of the waistband should overhang the waist opening.

Don’t forget to top press for a professional finish.
