So I couldn't resist trying my new serger skill on some knit. Using a Simplicity pattern for knits #2061. I made these pants. Instead of the elastic for the waistband I wanted a knit band. (not sure what these knit bands are called) but I have had multiple abdominal surgeries and the scar is very sensitive to waist bands.....which has led me to trying to make my own bottoms...copied from ready to wear which is almost impossible to find. Anyhow, I need to make some fitting adjustments. This waist band is too big. Does anyone have any words of wisdom for changing out a regular elastic waist band for this jersey knit type of waist band.....?? Thanks, Elaine
