Hi Brenda! This foot fits 90% of Babylock and Brother machines, but just to be safe, can you tell me your model numbers?

Hi Sarah:

Love your tutorials. They are very instructional and easy to understand. Do you have a tutorial on how to sew elastic waist band on a skirt? Is there a special foot that does this without making the elastic pucker? I’ve bee stretching and using a zigzag stitch while sewing the skirt onto the elastic with the elastic exposed. The result is wonky–the elastic is not smooth, but puckers. Any suggestions?

Sincerely,

Johnson

Hi Johnson!
There are a few different ways to sew elastic waistbands, but my favorite method is to sew an elastic casing, and then thread the elastic through with a safety pin. The I sew the elastic ends together with a zig zag stitch. For me, this is the easiest way. However, I’m going to give you a few links one sewing elastic bands:

Do any of these help? If not, I’d be more than happy to keep looking around for you!
