                       Agarra la banda elástica y mide por tu cintura cuanto vas a necesitar

Picture #12 and Picture #13: Now insert the elastic in the hem you just did, all around the skirt 

                      Ahora coloca adentro del dobladillo el elástico, alrededor de toda la falda

Picture #14 and Picture #15: When you get al the elastic inside the hem sew together both ends

                                                     Cuando termines de colocar todo el elástico adentro del dobladillo cose las dos puntas

Picture #16 and Picture #17: Then secure the elastic by sewing again the hem with the elastic

                                                     Luego para asegurar vuelve a coser el dobladillo con el elástico.
