Hi Everyone! In part 2 we're going to take a look at working with casings. A casing is a tube created with fabric, thread, or an applied trim. When combined with elastic, it creates an adjustable fit for the garment. It can be used on a waistline, neckline, or sleeve. They are very easy to create and use!
In the video posted below, we'll look at creating both a folded casing and an applied casing. I'll also show you a few 'in process' examples that really change the look of the existing U.K. Holiday Top. With just a few minor tweaks to the elastic length and placement - we've got a fresh new look for Spring 2018!
