This page is reserved for discussion on elastics. Anyone can ask a question or pitch in with an answer … you don’t have to wait for me to answer it! Do you want to know what elastic to use in a key hole opening, how much tension you should apply or how to thread elastic in a spaghetti strap? Well here is where you can seek advice or give it!
If you’ve read any of my blog you’ll know I keep trying to avoid the topic of sewing because I need to place emphasis on the pattern making. Afterall that’s what the site is all about … teaching fashion students how to make patterns for ready-to-wear close fit stretch garments. While the site isn’t necessarily aimed at home sewists, I do realise there’s probably more of you reading the site these days! Let’s try to keep to sewing questions rather than duplicating pattern topics covered elsewhere on the site, although I understand sometimes overlap is necessary!
