Adding a yoga waistband instead of elastic
The clock is a simple hand done applique to the front using felt and buttons and ric rac. I was able to complete this entire costume - including making the applique pattern pieces and cutting everything to sewn in one 4hr evening sewing stretch! I consider that a total WIN!

I added a little dip and bias to the front of the shirt because I used a flannel lining to the hood which took away the stretch and I added arm cuffs and a hem band to help keep Cheeks cozy! For the pants I used the Scientific Seamstress Easy Fits pattern and made them in knit with a yoga waistband

    Step 1

    To make a yoga waistband for your easy fits:
    1.Find some knit with a GREAT recovery and stretch (I prefer a nice 4way with some lycra)
    2. Cut a pieces of knit measuring a few inches smaller than the waist measurement by about 8 inches tall (though height is preference - remember it will be folded in half)
    3. Sew the ends together (right sides together)
    4. Fold waistband in half wrong sides together.
    5. Place waistband inside pants - right side of pants to waistband. and then pin the waistband in place evenly around.

    You will need to stretch the waistband to fit the pant. I generally pin front and back, and then sides. I find it easiest to just pin in quarters and then stretch the waistband as I sew.

    and all done!
