Making The Top Casing - Part 1

Making the casing for the elastic along the other side of the skirt is VERY similar to making the hem. The big difference is that the measurements are different, and they do need to be measured very carefully in order to be sure the casing is large enough for the elastic to get through!

Place your fabric right side down, with the top edge (the long side opposite from the hem) nearest to you. Fold up 5/8" (1.6 cm) along the long side, and pin temporarily along the folded edge.

Press along this fold to set the crease.
