You will want a casing for the back waist, with openings in the sideseams (inside of garment only) for the elastic to come out at the sides. You sew a button in the inside of the waistband, just in front of the openings. I think the easiest thing to do is examine a RTW garment with buttonhole elastic-- which a lot of children's clothes does have!
