For casing around the leg stitch again aprox 3/8



I am sewing McCall's pattern 5610, it calls for casing for elastic but I am unsure what to do. Please help



Hi Mel,

I do not have this pattern, so I am not sure what the instructions are asking exactly, however, I have sent you some photos of easy casing for elastic. You will need casing for the waist band of the bloomers, the bottom of the bloomers leg, as well as at the back of the top. I have use a contrasting stitch and elastic to show you more clearly. (I hope)

I hope this is helpful to you. Please let me know if you need any more assistance.

Happy Sewing
Monica :)
