Piping is generally a thin stretch of fabric that rubs down from the waist of the pant all the way down to the hem. It normally runs parallel to the pant or in a single straight line.

You then cut the piping to that desired length.

Using a sewing machine stitch along the pinned edges of the piping, make sure to keep the piping aligned as it is, and keep removing the pins as you go. Take your time and make sure to sew it thoroughly without anything going out of place or misplacing in any direction.

Make sure to iron the seams and press them properly to give them a cleaner and more polished look. In the end, try it on and see how it looks and if you need any changes.
