Keep the blade engaged. • Meet and pin shoulder edges, right sides together. Stitch several stitches. • Raise the presser foot and place the elastic under the foot, along the seamline. If the pattern allows ⅝″ (16mm) seam allowances, be sure to position the elastic over the ⅝″ (16mm) seamline.

Align the rougher wrong side of the elastic to the wrong side of the fabric, placing the fabric cut edge at the base of the elastic fold. Don’t cut the elastic to size until you’re finished with the first stitching. 4. Apply the elastic, using a two-step method. • Stitch a presser foot width from the fabric edge. It may be necessary to hold the fabric at a slight tension, especially around curves, so the finished edge hugs the body. • Fold the elastic to the right side. Insert a stretch needle and edgestitch as close to the edge as possible.
