Hi all--

So I'd like to whip up this skirt today: Burda 02-2011-105

but I am not sure what to buy for the waistband. The list of notions calls for a "stretch waistband" of 1 1/4 inches, which is sewn right sides together with the skirt and then flipped upwards, so it isn't encased or anything.

Could this really be just plain old barefaced regular elastic--or is there some special fabric-covered creation out there? (As you can imagine, trying to do a Google search for "stretch waistband" is completely useless, and if anyone else has made this skirt, they've not bothered to blog about it or post a review here--perhaps because it is so easy?)

Many thanks!
K

From the line drawing, it does look like a piece of elastic since I can see no zipper or any other closure. Burda is also calling it rustic. As I don't like exposed elastic, I would cover the elastic.

It might be an elastic belting type ban like this or this. There must be a proper name for this type of elastic but I can't think of it. But I know it is sold in various widths and many colors by the yard.

When I lived in Germany, you could get this wonderful elastic waste banding sold by meters. It was soft on the inside, that sits next to the skin. Wonderful stuff, as you we able to seriously reduce bulk in waistbands with it. I never looked for it when I was living in the US, nor here in Canada, so I have no idea if it's available over here.

OK, a quick google gave me one solution...pro stretch elastic. It can be used without a casing, and our own Pam Erny at Off The Cuff sells it. I dunno how to do links from my iPad, but if you google "Pam Erny elastic" you'll find it. HTH!

You guys are the best! Lynnrowe, I bet it's the stuff you were remembering. In the absence of that, though, I think the links you all have provided will help me find an acceptable substitute--maybe I'll have to take a trip into Philly and check the notions stores on Fabric Row sometime this week.

In the meanwhile, on to the next skirt, I guess. Thank you!

eLingeria.de has a wide variety of widths, patterns, and colours of wide waistband elastic if you want more options!

Lee pants for women uses a wonderful elastic waistbanding. It's used instead of a facing and super soft next to the skin.

Again, Why can't home sewists access these great products??
