How to Sew Double Elastics on Ballets Shoes
You have purchased a new pair of ballet slippers with double elastics, are excited to wear them and then realize you need to sew on elastics! Don't worry! Following the four simple steps below will ensure perfectly placed elastics and your shoes will be secure and comfortable.
Find the seam between the split sole on the bottom of the shoe. This is the position where the front elastic will be attached. Place the ballet shoe on the foot, cross the elastics over the fool and measure how long the elastics need to be for a snug fit. Pin the elastics to the rear of the seam. Sew the elastic at the seam. Cut any extra length of elastic off for comfort.
All done! You are now ready to dance and enjoy ballet class!
