7. Then sew the elastic to the garment, making sure you stretch the elastic as you sew, so the ruffles will scrunch up more. Start in the middle and work your way to one end. Repeat on the other side.
 
When you're sewing elastic in, stretching it from one direction isn't a good idea because it can pull the needle forward onto the plate and it'll break or bend the needle. Instead, stretch it either side of the needle and move along with the machine.

Great instructable though, will definitely be trying it out.
