Finally, baste all layers together at the bottom and attach the bottom elastic as per the pattern instructions, treating all layers as one.
I tried to figure out a way to have the bottom elastic also hidden between the outer layer and the lining but I couldn't figure it out...It probably would have required some hand stitching somewhere (keeping one of the lining side seam open and hand-sewing it at the very end), but since the main fabric gets turned to the inside, the elastic still gets encased in fabric so it's not that big of a deal.
I didn't finish the edge of the bottom as the final topstitching of the elastic kind of did the job for me. for a neater finish, you could legnthen the main fabric by 1cm and have that extra length folded over so there's no raw edge showing...
