Using a straight stretch stitch, sew along the design line.
The stretch stitch option is probably a dial somewhere at the upper right end of your sewing machine. Mine is marked "norm ------stretch". You should experiment with this or other stitches to find out which is best for your fabric. The degree of stretch will determine what you use. Other options are a small zig-zag with a short stitch length, or the stretchiest of all, the __/__/__/__ stitch.
