But I also promised the mama a how to with elastic! So here you go girl!!
Elastic Tutorial
Ingredient List
Garment
Sewing machine
Elastic
Safety pin
Iron

Step 1
Lay out your partially sewn garment like so


Step 2
Use something to measure the fold to make sure it’s even (I used a Fre because it’s easy to see)
Iron


Step 3
Fold over again and iron (make are your pin and elastic will fit through


Step 4
Sew along the bottom fold


Step 5
Thread your pin through your elastic and close (not to close to the end of the elastic)


Step 6
Thread the pin/elastic through the pocket you created in your garment


Continue


Step 7
Sew one end (the end with pin) in place


Step 8
Pull your elastic


Sew again once it’s the desired size!
Cut rest of the elastic and finish the garment!!
