Featured in the PR book!
Maybe others already came up with a good way of doing this, but I always have a hard time copying pants with elastic waists.

Now I use a skirt hanger with the clips.
I clip the waist and slide the clips to stretch the elastic just enough to make the fabric smooth. After that it is easy to copy the pattern with any method you like to use. And you still have 2 free hands to do that!
