Uoining Elastic

We recommend the needle style 2046 when

sewing on regular elastic.

• Fit elastic for desired snugness at waistline,

allowing 2.5 cm {1 inch) for joining. Lap
ends to form a band and straight stitch

together as shown using a bail 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

to fabric,

• Select honeycomb. Plain zig-zag, and multi­

stitch zig-zag are also effective for replacing

lingerie elastic.

• 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.
