Learn timesaving tips for sewing a variety of elastics.
Nancy reviews various types of elastics including braided, knitted, and woven, and then she teaches updated techniques for buttonhole and drawcord elastic. In addition, learn how to make a traditional elastic casing and a ready-to-wear technique for a no-worries elastic casing, especially nice for knit garments.
Choose elastic for great shaping details—the perfect stepping stone to creative projects!
Nancy uses clear, narrow, and fold-over elastic plus elastic thread in conventional and creative ways. Stabilize shoulder seams and add stretch to neckline seams with clear elastic, use 1/4" elastic for stretchable gathers, elastic thread for smocking, and soft flexible foldover elastic to finish soft knits such as baby clothing and fleece.
