Tutorials Worth Noting: ikat Bag on Smoooooth Waistbands

Everything I know about waistbands, I have learned from Ottobre Design Magazine.  For myself, I have made a variety of waistbands.  For my girls, only elastic waistbands that are sewn-through in one way or another.  This is a tutorial from ikat Bag--a blog by a wonderfully creative mother--that shows how to make smooth elastic waistbands, which are really the more stylish kind these days!  Also, my Doodle (5yo daughter) is long-waisted. Instead of elastic taking up some of the rise of the pants, it will be better to add some length with the elastic encased in a separate waistband!
