|I've whipped up some elastic waist velour pants for my DD's, and this tip builds on a recent one from "Threads", it a nice way to be add a label so the wearer can tell the front from the back on elastic waist pants.
1) Take a small piece of 1 inch/2.5 cm twill tape. Cut it about 2 1/4 inches/4 cm long and fold it in half.
2) Use permanent fabric markers to add a name and/or a design onto the tape. Leave yourself a 1/4 inch seam allowance along the top, unfolded edge. Pressing with a hot iron will help set the fabric marker ink and crease the label.
3) Tack the label upside down onto the top edge of the wasitband so that when you fold down the waistband casing it will show at the back waist right side up.
My kids got a real kick out of theirs, which have their names on them - the pants are identical, but both DD's are different sizes, and now they can tell their pants apart. If you have a separate casing for the waistband you would tack the label onto the the back crotch seam.
Twill tape is soft and not at all scratchy.
