Sewing elastic waistband
Decide the length of the elastic by measuring it comfortable around your waist. Remember to add seam allowance at the ends.
Join the ends of the elastic together so it forms a ring. Sew a couple of rows of stitching for extra strength.
Pin elastic to outside of skirt and sew about 1 cm down from the edge. You must stretch the fabric out so that both fabric and elastic are pulled flat while sewing
Turn the elastic to the inside, bringing the centimeter of fabric with it.
