coletterie clean finish waistband 01 Sewing Tip: Finish a Waistband without Sewing by Hand

In many skirt or trouser patterns, the last step in the process often involves finishing the waistband by hand. And, while the sewing isn’t usually difficult, it can be pretty slow going, making it just about the last thing that most of us feel like doing at the very end of a project. But, there’s hope! If you want to avoid those time-consuming hand-stitches, there may be a machine sewing alternative. To give it a try, check out this helpful tutorial for finishing a waistband using your sewing machine’s blind stitch foot on The Coletterie to see if it’s right for your garment.
