    On step 12, the pattern is missing the end of a sentence – “OPTIONAL: Use elastic thread for this seam to give your shirt”

    I was hoping for some discussion of this as part of the sew along. Where do I buy it? Is it both the bobbin and top thread? Is this if I am using a straight stitch on a regular sewing machine? Does this not apply if I am sewing the skirt to the top with a serger? Thanks in advance for any clarification you can give!

    I have the same questions as Heather.. Is it similar to a shirring technique? Does the elastic work with the stretch stitch on my sewing machine?
