The length of the elastic will be three centimeters less than the original length of the ribbon and lace (before adding 7 cm).

Then you need to insert the rubber into the product. Here you will need a pin, which must be attached to the edge of the elastic and stretch along the entire length of the garter. Since the length of the gum is shorter, do not miss its second edge, it would be better if you fasten it with something for a while, for example, with a colored eye pin.

After that, you can connect the edges of the product with a small overlap and sew them. Make a seam from the inside of the product. You can also sew the edges by connecting them evenly and stepping back a little space from the edge. Then trim the excess lace.
So the main work is done! Turn the product over and gently spread the folds.
