I am in the process of making a dress and jacket for my granddaughter. It called for two rows of elastic in the back inserting the elastic a little at a time alternating rows. After I got done I was trying to make it look even when I took the dress on both sides and gave it a little tug and lo and behold it looked fantastic. All even. I would think that this would work for any elastic insertion.

Joanies: My pattern (Simplicity 2469) called for two casings of elastic but there were 3 available. Next time I make this I am considering putting in 3. Two looks good so that's why I am saying "considering".

do you stitch 2 casings and then thread the elastic through?
