Video: How to Apply Elastic
In this excerpt from our beginner sewing video series, Teach Yourself to Sew – Season 2, you will learn how to apply elastic to a variety of fabrics. Threads Senior Technical Editor Judith Neukam demonstrates how to measure elastic to gather your fabric perfectly whether you are using or heavy-duty elastic as a waistband, or attaching clear elastic to form a swimsuit edge. Also, learn how to gather fabric at the bust using multiple strips of elastic instead of requiring a dart. Pick up your copy of Teach Yourself to Sew – Season 2 to learn more in Elastics 101 and How to Sew Casements for Elastic & Drawstings. You can buy both seasons in our store.
