Hello sewing friends!!

I made a pair of vogue pants this week that I Love but when I sew on my metal waistband fasteners (like a hook and eye type of closure but not a hook and eye), I hate the bulk that the fastener adds to the waist band. So I ran up to my closet to see what my ready to wear fastener looks like and they are not 'sew on' at all. They are more like staples. Stapled through the waist band and then the backside of the 'staple' covered by the waistband lining/yoke (??) for a clean finish. I checked on line and can't seem to find these. Has anyone come across them in your sewing travels and if so, where?? I tried to post a picture but Denver Fabrics is acting wonky right now.

Thanks!! Deb

I've bought them here (scroll down a little) and I think I might have seen them in Joanns, too.

Thank you so much! Unfortunately, you have to have a minimum order of $20 and they are only $2 per dozen so I will have to figure out some other things to order from here but this is an awesome start! Thank you - that was exactly what I wanted.

I have some Dritz ones, Deb. I'm certain they came from Hancocks or Joann's. Also, I see there are some on ebay.

Jeez, I didn't even think of looking on Ebay! Great advice. I tried to order them this afternoon through Joannes but I guess they don't deliver to Canada yet (darn!). I'll try ebay

Deb, I've had them on RTW pants too and they work great. However, those that you can buy for home use don't work as well. I always interface the fabric, but for some reason, after several wearings they pull apart and are impossible to repair because you'd have to unsew your waistband to get into it. Then you've got the hole that was created by the 'staple' to contend with.

I love them - and hate them. They give a much more professional, RTW look (if you shop in the same price range I do. I suppose really fine clothes could have sewn-on hooks, but I wouldn't know...).

Biggest problem: determining the correct placement before the waistband is completed and remembering to attach the little beasts at the appropriate time. I've had to do sewing's equivalent of laparoscopic surgery to get those things installed when I forgot to do it before the waistband was finished.
