- You can use your hand wheel, in particular when sewing over bulk eg. joined elastic thickness.
- Increase the length of your stitch, this will help keep the stretch in your elastic.
- Using stretch woolly nylon thread in your bobbin gives extra stretch to this area. Normal thread in bobbin works fine too.
- For those not keen to try twin needle stitching you could sew with a normal needle (stretch 90 or jeans 80 / jeans 90 - yes really, a jeans needle! They are a sharp and tough needle that will go through elastic and fabric thickness) and sew a double row finish instead.
