How to sew wide bottom elastic with clean finish

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.
