With the sewing needle and thread, overlap both ends of the elastic and sew them together (the extra 1cm / ½” is for seam allowance) together forming a loop (be careful not to twist it!).
Fold the top of the waistband over the elastic, and sl st the top row of the waistband to the bottom row around (this forms a tube with the elastic inside).
Finish off, weave in ends.
