I have made a couple of pair of pant liners using lingerie elastic as the waistband. My problem is that they seem to slowly slide downwards and I end up continually pulling up my pants like a little kid. I don't seem to have this problem with commercially made products.

Am I using the wrong kind of elastic or am I putting too much elastic per fabric. I used 32 inches with a half inch overlap for my 39 inch waist. It doesn't seem like it should be too much. Is the elastic just too wimpy to hold up that much fabric?

I seems like you're using a good ratio...I made a half slip and used foldover elastic for the waist, I like it because it's soft and nice recovery.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

How many use elastics for the new big-scoop knit necklines or sweater knits instead of a bias to avoid stretching out?
Haven't tried the sew-on type (in case it's needs ripping out) or would you use the tunnel version?

The pants weigh more than a slip so you need a stronger or tighter elastic.

I agree, I think you need heftier elastic. Give me a call and drop by, you are welcome to go through my stash of lingerie stuff to see I have something that will work. When I was in lingerie mode I bought everything that turned up at FIDM, so I'm sure I have something that will work for you.

2012 : starting stash 386, net additions 206, used 164, ending stash 428...I'm never going to get in front of this pile of fabric!
