ST Jeans & Laura Jeans Sew Along days 10 and 11: Adjustable waistband and finishes
It's the last two days of the Sew Along. Today and tomorrow we're making and adjustable waistband (just like the ones that you find in ready-to-wear), installing the front button, and topstitching the belt loops.
My kids still need and adjustable waistband in their garments, and this is how I do it in all patterns. However, if you just want to sew a regular flat waistband, that's perfectly fine. Simply skip the adjustable part.
- Day 10: Making the adjustable waistband
- Day 11: Finishing steps: installing the button, inserting the elastic and finishing the belt loops
I hope you enjoyed the Sew Along, and that you'll find the videos useful to make more jeans or any other garment that uses the same sewing techniques.
Remember that the construction of an adult pair of jeans is exactly the same as this, so go ahead, buy a pattern for adult jeans and make a pair for yourself. ;-)
Share photos of your makes during the sew along on Instagram or in Suco by Susana's group on Facebook, with hashtags #mystjeans or #mylaurajeans, for a chance to win a Suco by Susana pattern of your choice.
