New Sew Skirt 12
NOTE: TO ASK QUESTIONS EMAIL ME AT LDSWOMAN@YAHOO.COM
This is the size elastic I'm using. It's a 1/4" of elastic, so it will fit inside the "casing" I just made. To find out how to insert elastic into a casing, see this video:
It is actually a video on how to replace a waistband, but about 1/4 the way through she shows how to use a safety pin to insert elastic. It is that skill you need here. When done, she sews the elastic together and sews the waist closed, both with a sewing machine. What we will do instead is hand stitch the elastic together and then pull the elastic into the casing like she does, but instead of sewing the insertion point closed, we will use more of the hem tape to close it up instead.
