Beginner’s Guide to Sewing – How to Gather with Elastic

The last in my Beginner’s Guide to Sewing series of Youtube video tutorials filmed with Cico shows you how to attach elastic directly to garments to create ruching and gathers.

I used it in this ruched side version of the Roewood Jersey Pencil Skirt in “Beginner’s Guide to Making Skirts” to create a comfortable soft drapes and gathers and easily transform a plain simple skirt.

Here’s how to do it, it’s one of those techniques that’s definitely easier to show in video than pictures so I hope this will be one to bookmark and come back to!
