- Self fabric cuff, not elastic hem
- Smooth waistband, no ruffling, no excess
- Separate waistband, no folding over.
Since I conquered one pair of Capri Leggings and also tried Jan Bones Shortie Legging Pattern with a gusset, I've been dreaming of making my own style bike shorts. I know I want:
My favorite waistband was made in 2006 or earlier when I sewed this "You're Getting Sleepy" skirt from a Burda Magazine to wear to hot rod shows. The electric purple perfectly complimented many a paint job and holds the feel of the wild Tiki and go go girl colors and patterns. I learned how to make this smooth waistband with knits from a Threads magazine. Must dig that out so I can share with you. It transformed me from an average sewist into someone who sewed professional looking knits. I was thrilled. Here are a few photos for your viewing pleasure and studies.
