Waists & Waistbands: A Directory of Design Details and Techniquesby Skills Institute Press
The silhouette of a garment is often defined by the waistline. Whether it's a dress with a fitted top and body-skimming bottom or a pair of pants that sits at the natural waist and lies flat over the hips, your clothes should fit and flatter your figure. A well-made waistband is the key to a great-fitting and comfortable garment. Whether you are looking for a casual drawstring, a comfortable elastic or a tailored seam-this book will teach home seamstresses how to create waistbands to suit a variety of garments and styles.
