Elastic Waistband
1. It requires two layers of patterns to construct an elastic waistband: 1) one of the same length as the waist on the trousers. 2) the one longer than the waist.
2. Set the inner pattern’s elastic ratio to 100 to prevent being stretched.
3. Reduce the particle distance for a more realistic appearance of the elastic waistband. 4. Use the Set Sublayer tool to stable the two layers of the elastic waistband.

The Set Sublayer Tool

Drawstrings, aglets, and eyelets
1. Make two transparent circle patterns (the same size as the eyelet) where you want to put down the eyelets and sew them to the hood.

3. Stitch the drawstrings to the transparent patterns.
4. Reduce the particle distance if needed.
