Elastic Waist Shorts with Riley Blake Designs Waistband Elastic

30 Jul 2015

 Our 2" Waistband Elastic has arrived! We are having so much fun playing with it and we know you will, too!

Today, we whipped up several pairs of Elastic Waistband Boxer Shorts to show you.

By using our 2" wide Waistband Elastic, you save loads of time and frustration by skipping the traditional technique of sewing a channel and inserting elastic through it.

Riley Blake 2" Waistband Elastic is super soft and stretchy. No scratchy, stiff elastic here! 

The comfort level of this Waistband Elastic is a 10! Because of the 2" thickness, this elastic won't roll or pinch, but instead sits beautifully on the waist.


Here are a few more fun projects using our 2" Waistband Elastic:

20 Minute Knit Circle Skirt

30 Minute Tutu Tutorial

20 Minute Pencil Skirt

Riley Blake Waistband Elastic comes in 5 fun colors: Navy, Hot Pink, White, Gray and Black. Grab yours today and happy sewing!

*To make these boxer shorts, we used this fabulous free pattern from Jessica Abbott on EHow. Please note that this pattern runs VERY small. We used a Women's Small, which fit this 9 year old comfortably, so if using this pattern, be sure to check your sizing.
