Good tip Mary, I didn't even think about spray starch! Penny...I didn't actually cut mine on the bias since I was using a knit, I cut the waistband on the cross stretch. I should have mentioned that! Thanks :D

I've been promoting this pattern since I made it (twice). I admit that the waistband is tricky to sew on, but you forgot to mention the key thing...it's cut on the bias - so you stretch it to fit the garment, and it totally doesn't look like an elastic waistband. I have the gauchos in both denim and a drapey rayon, and I love them!

I think this looks great. Just thought you might want to know that one of the things you can do that will help is spray starch. It seems to tame down slippery fabric. Just test it first to make sure no damage is done to your fabric. I've used this tip with some slippery polyester fabrics and it really does help.
