Very good way to put elastic in,I have a jacket that the end of the sleeves are too big. I will use this method to fix them where they will be tighter. Thank you,really like your tutorials,you explain things very well, Sheila
I like this method, and I am wondering what is the best stitch length to use. I do a lot of clothes for vintage dolls and it seems there's always elastic in sleeves, sunsuit legs and panties. It takes too long to do casings and I don't particularly like using a zig zag stitch as I was taught years ago.
Realize also that the amount the elastic is pulled will determine how much the fabric gathers.
I have sewn elastic on using this method but never thought of sewing it into the ditch of a seam. how clever. Thanks for the 'how to'.
Sorry... typo- elastic feeding foot... it really has no feeling. haha.
I'm so glad to see this...I've sewn elastic this way for years. So much easier.
Have you ever used the "elastic feeling" foot on a sewing machine? I've wondered if it is worth the purchase.
Thanks for your super tute.
