FABRIC SUGGESTIONS include Swimwear/Leggings Spandex, Boo! Spandex, Double Brushed Polyester, Rayon Elastane, Rayon Bamboo Elastane, Cotton Elastane (Lycra), French Terry, Ponte, Stretch Velour. For more fabric information, see page 8 of the tutorial.
Topstitched waistband: Good quality 40mm (1.5”) elastic. This is important so it doesn’t stretch when you topstitch it. I recommend Boo! Design elastic (Australia). Optional: drawstring, drawstring toggles/cordlocks.
Covered waistband: 40mm (1.5”) elastic.
Exposed/Decorative waistband: Coloured or decorative elastic.
