We recommend the needle style 2045 when
sewing on regular elastic.
® Fit elastic for desired snugness at waistline,
allowing 2.5 cm (1 inch) for joining. Lap
together as shown using a ball point needle.
® Divide elastic band into four equal segments
and mark with pins. Do the same to the
garment. Then pin together at correspond
ing points, pinning elastic over right side of
fabric, top edges even.
® Sew a few straight stitches to anchor elastic
® Select honeycomb. Plain zig-zag, and multi
stitch zig-zag are also effective for replacing
® Then hold elastic and garment edge taut as
you stitch so that it will remain stretchable
after stitching is completed.
CAUTION: Do not pull the fabric while you are
stitching as this may deflect the needle, caus
ing it to break.
