    I sewed these in smooth quilting cotton size 3-6 months and inserted the elastic in straight. It seems like the elastic is trying to fold over on itself or twist? Would stitching along the top of the casing be too rough on a baby’s belly. This casing seems like it has more room around the elastic than say a casing on a pattern like the Lazy day skirt. I would appreciate any suggestions.

    I topstitched around Trixie’s and I also tacked a few stitches at the sides to hold the elastic in place.

    I am really excited about these ‘bottoms’ as they look as if they will go over a cloth nappy.

    Thank you and I will do that on the next two that I am sewing.
