Fix: Gaping Jeans
Ever had a pair of jeans that gaped at the back waistband? This gaping and indecent knicker showing was driving me slowly insane. I recently solved this problem by using bias binding (2.5cm wide) to sew a casing to the back waistband before inserting 2cm wide elastic and securing at each end with stitching. I used red thread on top and navy thread in the bobbin so the stitching blends in.
Simple! Now, why hadn't I thought of this sooner...
