Video tutorial: Add an elastic casing to any seam

I am seeing a lot of dresses in the stores lately that have a bit of elastic at the waist.  In fact, I’m in the process of making a dress for my daughter that will have a gathered waist.  If you want an elastic waist and the dress pattern you’re sewing doesn’t call for that, it’s easy enough to add one in without having to create a separate casing.  In fact, you can easily convert any seam to an elastic casing.  Professor Pincushion shares a video showing how.  Follow the link to the video:
