Design feature or hidden support?
Wide bottom elastic is truly 2 in 1!
I don´t need more reasons to use it in my bralette.
I already mentioned this solution as one of three ways to adding your bralette support.
But I really don´t like it when I have the whole bralette with nice enclosed seams and then one exposed and not a really clean one.
Do you agree?
You can always attach the wide band elastic in a similar way as a picot elastic by attaching the elastic with one row of zig-zag stitches, flipping, and sewing another.
Finished result looks like that.

Do you believe now that it´s doable even without overlock?
Note: This method is not very suitable for bulky fabrics.
