This technique can be used for sewing waistbands on shorts, pants, skirts, etc. It’s definitely one of the quickest and most fun ways to add elastic! (Something is so satisfying about stretching elastic while sewing a zig zag stitch, and just watching it gather! ✨)

I have been using this method to sew elastic waistband for many projects. I have seen this in many mass produced garments and must admit it is the quickest and easiest way to sew elastic waistband. It is not only easy but also a great way to keep the elastic from being twisted when you pull it up (my 4 year old son does this all the time with inserted, not sewn in elastic). The only downside of this is you cannot adjust the length of elastic without ripping the whole thing off. This tutorial…
