Yesterday I made a pair of pants and I was in a hurry I did not watched out while cutting a waistband .I sewed it on and it appeared to be too small for the elastic what was going to be covered by it. I wanted to finish the pant and did not want to rip off the whole band and cut a wider band, so I used a matching brown satin bias tape that was in my stash and sewed the tape on. This was just the extra I needed to finish the pant.
