A contributor named Amanda Mangan contributed this suggestion on Simplicity.com: "I have a great method for making the casing for an elastic band without having to feed the elastic through the casing. On the wrong side of the fabric, stretch out the elastic around the place you want the casing, until the elastic ends meet. Make sure you leave the fabric allotment on top for the casing. Tightly pin down the elastic. Sew the elastic onto the fabric straight through the middle of the elastic. Just finish by folding the casing over the elastic and sewing in place."

Simply sew the lines from one end of the line to the other, about 1/2 inch apart. The shirring elastic will automatically gather the fabric for you. Be sure to tie the ends to keep them from pulling out, or anchor them with extra stitching.

When sewing a waistband how do you determine how much elastic to use?

You use 1" more than the waist you're sewing for. This allows for a 1" overlap to sew the elastic together securely. Answer two: Per this entry from Threads Magazine online: The length of elastic should be shorter than the waist seam (after seams and darts are sewn). How much shorter depends on the combination of fabric, lining and elastic. On lightweight fabric with lightweight lining, use clear elastic, and pull the elastic gently as you sew it in place. If the fashion fabric is corduroy or cotton twill with a medium lining, use braided elastic, and stretch the elastic more as you sew it in place because heavy or firm fabrics put more pressure on the elastic. http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/3740/how-to-shop-for-elastic
