Hey, y’all. New here. Hoping you can help me. I’ve been faced with this issue several times in recent months and really have no idea how to do this.
I am making a swimsuit that has an elastic waistband but has a ruffle at the waist. (Little girls pageant suit…and before anyone blasts me about pageants and stuff, I’m only the hired hand. I don’t like glitz pageants. Lol). I can’t figure out how to attach the ruffle. It doesn’t strech but the waistband does. So how are you supposed to do it? I currently have a maxi dress I want to make that will incorporate the same deal.
Will it work to just attach it normal? Do I use elasticized thread? Help!
