My favorite "yard work" pants' elastic waistband had given out. I briefly thought about removing the elastic and reinserting a new piece in the folded over waistband, but found it to be entirely too much trouble to unpick the tiny stitches I had used. Instead I cut off the entire band and added a strip of brightly colored calico in its place which I then folded over the new elastic and stitched down. I think I like the rejuvenated pants better than the original.

What an easy idea. That has stopped me from fixing my pants. Now I have to check to see what sort of fabric I have.

That sounds cute and I've been seeing that in RTW too. Way to go.
