I love me a yoga waistband for pants, skirts, bathing suit bottoms, just about anything that needs a waistband. Why? Because they’re super comfortable and they don’t create a muffin top the way that elastic waistbands can do. Melissa from Melly Sews and Blank Slate patterns shares a tutorial showing how to replace an elastic waistband with a yoga waistband. They’re easy to make and require only a wide strip of knit fabric (no elastic!) Go to Melly Sews for the tute.
