A lot of my free printable doll clothes patterns use an elastic waistband, which requires that you understand how to create a casing and how to pull elastic through that waistband’s casing.
For your convenience, I’ve created a tutorial video showing you, one step and a time, how to sew a casing and how to pull elastic through the casing of a doll’s garment’s waistband.
You may also need to purchase some elastic for your project. If you’re buying elastic for a 14 inch doll or larger, I recommend using 1/4 inch (6 mm) wide elastic.
For dolls 13 inches or smaller, it’s not a bad idea to use 1/8 inch wide elastic.
