Inspiration: Creative Uses for Dritz Sewing Elastic


Dritz Waistband Elastics

Woven 1-1/2″ Dritz® waistband elastic is soft and comfortable. There are 7 on-trend colors available, perfect for sewing projects like PJ bottoms, boxer shorts and skirts – a must when you want the elastic to really stand out!  


Dritz Waistband Elastics

SNEAK PEEK! The woven 2″ Dritz® waistband elastic is even wider, so it’s sure to make a statement. It sits comfortably at the waist; it lays flat and does not roll. There are 7 fashion colors to choose from (note: this style will be available in February 2017).


Dritz Waistband Elastics

Cozy time! Use both the 1-1/2″ and 2″ wide styles of elastic to make easy-sew PJ bottoms and lounge pants. Talk about comfortable!

We made the pair with the tile blue elastic using McCalls® sewing pattern 6458. Make the pair with dinosaur scales using orange elastic.


Use Dritz Fold-Over Elastic to Make Your Own Doll Clothes

Let your little one’s doll in on the action! We made these 18″ doll pants using McCalls® sewing pattern 5019 and finished the waist with Dritz® 5/8″ fold-over elastic.

(If you’re not familiar with fold-over elastic, you’ll love using it for many types of projects, many of which require very light sewing. It’s a super versatile sewing and crafting material!)


Dritz Metallic Waistband Elastic is Great for Skirts

Party time! Nobody wants to be twinning at holiday gatherings, so here’s how to avoid that: make your own festive skirt!

Dritz® metallic waistband elastics are 1-3/4″ wide and have metallic threads woven through them. The metallic elastics provide a sturdy waistband with lots of shimmer. Go ahead, dance the night away!


Dritz Jacquard Elastic is Perfect for Easy-Sew Accessories

You saw it here first! Brand new Dritz® jacquard elastics are coming in February 2017. We just love the look of these! There will be four styles to choose from. We tested it out on our arm-band phone pouch project – perfect for all those fitness resolutions we’ll soon be making …
