                    Deja un espacio abierto para luego colocar el elástico adentro.

Picture #10: Measure the elastic, do not stretch it only has to be tight 

                       Mide el elástico, al medirlo no lo estires debes ser justo nada más

Picture#11 and picture #12: Once you put the elastic inside, sew and close.

                                                   Una vez que hayas colocado el elástico, coselo y cierra.

Picture #17 and Picture #18: For the last step do a little hem to give a finish touch.

                                                    Y como último paso haz un dobladillo en la parte inferior del vestido.
