This may seem obvious-but as much elastic as I have been quartering and sewing on prompts me to note: if you tack down both ends of the elastic-before stitching, it won't slip out of your hand when you get to the end.(applying in a straight line-as on a sleeve edge-as opposed to a circle-like a waistband or neck)
