The instructions for the waistband provided with this Vogue pattern were odd to say the least. I did contemplate not following them but decided to give it a go.
After cutting your waistband, the instructions had you fold the waistband in half. Then after folded in half, fold up the seam allowance. After folding up the seam allowance, the waistband was placed on the skirt.
How odd!! Then you just sew the waistband on. It turned out fine, but it still seems a round about way of doing this.
