My Pants for Real People book recommends "Perfect Waistbands" non-roll monofilament nylon waistband interfacing

https://www.palmerpletsch.com/product/waistband-6-yards/

but I don`t think it is available in the UK.  Is there anything else which would be similar?  Otherwise what do people recommend?  I`ve used the Vilene iron-on slotted stuff before but can`t say I`m over-impressed

I have Kenton trimmings book marked for Ban roll http://www.kentontrimmings.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=82_84_207&products_id=415

I’ve not used it, but I think the link came from Morgan on the old site. I don’t know how it compares to peters ham, but I agree the Vilene slotted waistband is rubbish for folding during wear.
Procrastination get behind me

Petersham should work fine.  Not sure if ban rol would wear through fabric after a while.  It's very stiff and quite harsh.

Is Petersham what most people would use for trouser waistbands?  If so, do you have a favourite supplier?
