Easy Fit and Sew Yoga Pants: How to Make a Custom Waistband

1
00:00:06,580 –> 00:00:10,420
okay welcome back I tried these legs on

2
00:00:10,420 –> 00:00:13,930
my daughter I’m not putting her in for

3
00:00:13,930 –> 00:00:16,120
because until you get the waistband on

4
00:00:16,120 –> 00:00:18,970
they’re very very low so more of her was

5
00:00:18,970 –> 00:00:21,070
showing then she felt comfortable to be

6
00:00:21,070 –> 00:00:23,290
in my video so unfortunately I can’t

7
00:00:23,290 –> 00:00:27,119
show you that on an actual body

8
00:00:30,890 –> 00:00:34,460
alright so with these on okay so pretend

9
00:00:34,460 –> 00:00:36,560
you know she’s wearing these what I did

10
00:00:36,560 –> 00:00:40,250
was I basically wrapped the band around

11
00:00:40,250 –> 00:00:43,630
her so that the bottom edges of the band

12
00:00:43,630 –> 00:00:46,130
lined up with the top of the leg like

13
00:00:46,130 –> 00:00:49,640
this so I could see that if I added this

14
00:00:49,640 –> 00:00:52,040
much you know however much you need then

15
00:00:52,040 –> 00:00:53,809
the top would sit where she wanted them

16
00:00:53,809 –> 00:00:57,620
to sit so for her I needed to cut a 16

17
00:00:57,620 –> 00:01:01,940
inch band because I’m going to I’m going

18
00:01:01,940 –> 00:01:03,320
to lose a little bit more than an inch

19
00:01:03,320 –> 00:01:05,990
when I sew it together this way so this

20
00:01:05,990 –> 00:01:07,580
will make a comfortable sort of tummy

21
00:01:07,580 –> 00:01:11,540
control panel for her and this will be

22
00:01:11,540 –> 00:01:12,590
very comfortable they’re not going to

23
00:01:12,590 –> 00:01:14,540
slide down her belly’s not going to

24
00:01:14,540 –> 00:01:16,310
stick out under her shirt it’s going to

25
00:01:16,310 –> 00:01:17,960
be really comfortable so the cool thing

26
00:01:17,960 –> 00:01:19,880
about this pattern is you can really get

27
00:01:19,880 –> 00:01:22,970
it to fit the way you want based on you

28
00:01:22,970 –> 00:01:25,280
know how high you if you adjusted the

29
00:01:25,280 –> 00:01:27,649
rise before you cut out your pieces and

30
00:01:27,649 –> 00:01:30,440
then how wide you make your band so in

31
00:01:30,440 –> 00:01:32,780
this case this is a 16 inch piece of

32
00:01:32,780 –> 00:01:34,700
fabric that I’m folding in half so I’m

33
00:01:34,700 –> 00:01:37,640
going to add approximately 7 inches of

34
00:01:37,640 –> 00:01:42,190
length to the rise front and back

35
00:01:43,820 –> 00:01:47,930
let me show you how to now make the

36
00:01:47,930 –> 00:01:49,580
waistband so the first thing we’re going

37
00:01:49,580 –> 00:01:50,720
to do is we’re going to fold it in half

38
00:01:50,720 –> 00:01:54,110
like this and I want to remember to put

39
00:01:54,110 –> 00:01:57,920
my dark side face in and I’m going to

40
00:01:57,920 –> 00:02:02,060
just Serge this together from here to

41
00:02:02,060 –> 00:02:04,490
here okay this is going to be my center

42
00:02:04,490 –> 00:02:08,180
back seam on my waistband so I’m just

43
00:02:08,180 –> 00:02:10,580
going to Serge it I’m just going to do

44
00:02:10,580 –> 00:02:13,130
it really quickly I don’t need to need

45
00:02:13,130 –> 00:02:15,470
to ten this really okay so let’s just

46
00:02:15,470 –> 00:02:18,190
slow this together

47
00:02:23,560 –> 00:02:25,790
all right and then what I’m going to do

48
00:02:25,790 –> 00:02:29,000
is this is the back of my yoga pants you

49
00:02:29,000 –> 00:02:31,549
can see that so the rise is higher so

50
00:02:31,549 –> 00:02:34,939
I’m going to turn it so the back and

51
00:02:34,939 –> 00:02:36,769
then basically what I’m going to do is

52
00:02:36,769 –> 00:02:40,629
I’m just going to flip this down and

53
00:02:40,629 –> 00:02:43,519
scoot it in like this okay so now I’ve

54
00:02:43,519 –> 00:02:47,079
got my waistband all the way around my

55
00:02:47,079 –> 00:02:50,180
legs and I’m going to line up this back

56
00:02:50,180 –> 00:02:53,420
Center seam with the center back seam of

57
00:02:53,420 –> 00:02:56,530
the waistband I’m going to pin that and

58
00:02:56,530 –> 00:02:59,510
then I’m going to stretch it around to

59
00:02:59,510 –> 00:03:02,239
the front so what I’m going to do is I’m

60
00:03:02,239 –> 00:03:03,709
just going to stretch everything so it’s

61
00:03:03,709 –> 00:03:06,230
so basically I’m folding in half center

62
00:03:06,230 –> 00:03:08,180
back is here center front is here and

63
00:03:08,180 –> 00:03:11,829
I’m just going to pin this all together

64
00:03:11,829 –> 00:03:14,030
so I’ll make it really easy to

65
00:03:14,030 –> 00:03:19,400
distribute the ease okay and then what

66
00:03:19,400 –> 00:03:20,450
I’m going to do is I’m just going to add

67
00:03:20,450 –> 00:03:23,989
a few more pins to make it sure

68
00:03:23,989 –> 00:03:25,879
everything is laying nice and neat all

69
00:03:25,879 –> 00:03:27,590
the way around so I’ll just pin it

70
00:03:27,590 –> 00:03:32,569
together if you find that your legs are

71
00:03:32,569 –> 00:03:35,030
much bigger than the base of the

72
00:03:35,030 –> 00:03:38,180
waistband you can go in and take in your

73
00:03:38,180 –> 00:03:40,010
front and back crotch a little bit so

74
00:03:40,010 –> 00:03:42,169
you can sew in a little bit deeper at

75
00:03:42,169 –> 00:03:45,229
the top of your your crotch seam to make

76
00:03:45,229 –> 00:03:48,349
it fit in easier so it should be pretty

77
00:03:48,349 –> 00:03:50,060
close to the top of your legs this is

78
00:03:50,060 –> 00:03:54,859
actually very similar so there’s not

79
00:03:54,859 –> 00:03:57,409
really a lot to ease in alright so now

80
00:03:57,409 –> 00:04:00,260
that I’ve got it all pinned together it

81
00:04:00,260 –> 00:04:03,069
looks like this there’s my center back

82
00:04:03,069 –> 00:04:05,239
okay and I’ve got all the edges neatly

83
00:04:05,239 –> 00:04:07,250
pinned we’re just going to search all

84
00:04:07,250 –> 00:04:09,379
the way around to attach the waistband

85
00:04:09,379 –> 00:04:13,340
onto the legs alright so the reason why

86
00:04:13,340 –> 00:04:16,459
I put the waistband on the outside of

87
00:04:16,459 –> 00:04:19,279
the pants is so I can now just surge

88
00:04:19,279 –> 00:04:21,649
inside the circle so when I put this on

89
00:04:21,649 –> 00:04:25,759
my machine you can see that I’m inside

90
00:04:25,759 –> 00:04:27,139
the circle there’s nothing under my

91
00:04:27,139 –> 00:04:29,930
presser foot all the extra fabric is off

92
00:04:29,930 –> 00:04:32,270
to the side like this so I’m just going

93
00:04:32,270 –> 00:04:36,000
to start in front of the

94
00:04:36,000 –> 00:04:38,970
center back seam and I’m going to lift

95
00:04:38,970 –> 00:04:42,030
my needles I’m going to slide everything

96
00:04:42,030 –> 00:04:47,040
under there like that put my presser

97
00:04:47,040 –> 00:04:52,200
foot down sink my needles and now I’m

98
00:04:52,200 –> 00:04:56,790
going to start surging if you need to

99
00:04:56,790 –> 00:04:59,940
stretch the legs fit the waistband or

100
00:04:59,940 –> 00:05:01,440
waistband to fit the legs a little bit

101
00:05:01,440 –> 00:05:19,620
you can stretch from pin to pin see

102
00:05:19,620 –> 00:05:23,190
everything is out here okay so you can

103
00:05:23,190 –> 00:05:24,930
make sure that you’re not catching

104
00:05:24,930 –> 00:05:27,720
anything you know by sewing inside the

105
00:05:27,720 –> 00:05:30,500
circle like that

106
00:05:33,860 –> 00:05:36,510
okay you can see I’d almost reached my

107
00:05:36,510 –> 00:05:38,520
start point what I’m going to do is I’m

108
00:05:38,520 –> 00:05:40,260
going to stitch until the knife cuts

109
00:05:40,260 –> 00:05:47,280
this tail okay that just happened what

110
00:05:47,280 –> 00:05:51,660
I’m going to do now is I’m going to put

111
00:05:51,660 –> 00:05:55,620
the knife down okay because I don’t want

112
00:05:55,620 –> 00:05:58,200
to cut any of my stitching now in front

113
00:05:58,200 –> 00:06:00,780
of where I’m going to overlap and I’m

114
00:06:00,780 –> 00:06:02,880
going to stitch until I overlap about a

115
00:06:02,880 –> 00:06:07,290
quarter of an inch and then once I’ve

116
00:06:07,290 –> 00:06:09,450
done that I’m going to raise my needles

117
00:06:09,450 –> 00:06:11,850
all the way I’m going to lift my presser

118
00:06:11,850 –> 00:06:14,760
foot I’m going to wiggle the thread off

119
00:06:14,760 –> 00:06:17,220
the stitch fingers from behind and then

120
00:06:17,220 –> 00:06:19,260
I’m going to turn the whole thing so

121
00:06:19,260 –> 00:06:21,840
that the fabric is perpendicular to the

122
00:06:21,840 –> 00:06:24,600
back of my presser foot and away from

123
00:06:24,600 –> 00:06:26,490
the needles then I’m gonna put my

124
00:06:26,490 –> 00:06:28,320
presser foot back down and I’m going to

125
00:06:28,320 –> 00:06:30,740
chain off

126
00:06:32,850 –> 00:06:39,580
see how nice and tidy that looks okay so

127
00:06:39,580 –> 00:06:41,740
my daughter Anna tried on her yoga pants

128
00:06:41,740 –> 00:06:43,810
and I just want to show you how this

129
00:06:43,810 –> 00:06:46,690
control panel this tummy control panel

130
00:06:46,690 –> 00:06:49,990
fits her it looks kind of funky laying

131
00:06:49,990 –> 00:06:52,030
flat on the table but check out how it

132
00:06:52,030 –> 00:06:54,220
fits her when she has them on notice

133
00:06:54,220 –> 00:06:57,010
that um everything is nice and smooth

134
00:06:57,010 –> 00:06:59,740
it’s super comfortable and the reason

135
00:06:59,740 –> 00:07:01,540
why I designed the pattern this way is

136
00:07:01,540 –> 00:07:05,020
because the seam is very low across your

137
00:07:05,020 –> 00:07:07,840
across the front and the back so you get

138
00:07:07,840 –> 00:07:09,370
the advantage of a double layer of

139
00:07:09,370 –> 00:07:12,670
fabric as a control panel if you don’t

140
00:07:12,670 –> 00:07:15,910
want the seam to be this low you can

141
00:07:15,910 –> 00:07:18,850
increase the rise of the legs before you

142
00:07:18,850 –> 00:07:21,160
you know put the waistband on and then

143
00:07:21,160 –> 00:07:24,750
you don’t need to make the bandar slide

144
00:07:27,550 –> 00:07:29,490
but if you’re looking to for a can

145
00:07:29,490 –> 00:07:33,740
roll panel for comfort this this amazing

146
00:07:33,740 –> 00:07:35,970
okay so I just want to show you one

147
00:07:35,970 –> 00:07:38,550
other thing I need a sample of what I

148
00:07:38,550 –> 00:07:42,810
would make for yoga pants for me all of

149
00:07:42,810 –> 00:07:44,370
my yoga pants are in the wash I wear

150
00:07:44,370 –> 00:07:47,370
them all the time I practically live in

151
00:07:47,370 –> 00:07:50,580
them but you can see here I just quickly

152
00:07:50,580 –> 00:07:52,020
made the sample to show you what it

153
00:07:52,020 –> 00:07:55,020
would look like if you made a narrower

154
00:07:55,020 –> 00:07:55,979
waistband

155
00:07:55,979 –> 00:07:58,139
okay so this is more of a yoke or

156
00:07:58,139 –> 00:08:00,120
waistband instead of a control panel and

157
00:08:00,120 –> 00:08:03,599
you can see it’s it was an 8 inch strip

158
00:08:03,599 –> 00:08:05,370
and by the time I filled it in half and

159
00:08:05,370 –> 00:08:07,560
sewed it it works out to be you know

160
00:08:07,560 –> 00:08:10,380
about three and a half to three and

161
00:08:10,380 –> 00:08:13,139
three-quarter inches wide so this is

162
00:08:13,139 –> 00:08:15,720
another example of how the waistband

163
00:08:15,720 –> 00:08:17,669
would look if you weren’t making as wide

164
00:08:17,669 –> 00:08:20,520
of a control panel alright so I just

165
00:08:20,520 –> 00:08:23,009
wanted to give you that option please

166
00:08:23,009 –> 00:08:26,159
join me in the next lesson when I show

167
00:08:26,159 –> 00:08:27,960
you how to do an easy hem technique

168
00:08:27,960 –> 00:08:29,520
using your sewing machine and a twin

169
00:08:29,520 –> 00:00:00,000
needle
