Hi, I’m re- posting this as I’m not 100% where it belongs-
does anyone know the best way to sew elastic on to sheer fabric? I was thinking of maybe using a shallow zigzag with shirring elastic for the bobbin thread? Or otherwise I think the other day I saw something that looked like a clear elastic thread?
What I’m looking to achieve is something like the edges on strumpet and pink knickers;
I think you can see it best in the cheerleader style – that really subtle elastic edge. I have absolutely no idea how to do it. (and by the way they’re worth a look for the sake of it – so pretty!)
Any one have any ideas?
