What is Foldover?
Foldover elastic is like a stretch bias tape. You can enclose, finish and elasticize an edge in one step. Works great to keep t-shirt necklines lying flat, waistbands, leg openings, etc. Measurement is flat, will be half that when applied as a foldover elastic. Apply using a triple zig zag or lightning stitch while stretching the foldover slightly for necklines or more for leg openings and waistbands. Here's a link to an online tutorial.

It can also be used for baby headbands.
Hope this helps
