Soft against the skin, so it is perfect for the legs and top edges of panties. It will not ever be too tight around the legs. It is also a great width for this area, too. It is not a strong holding elastic, so it is not recommended to use this for a bra band. If using our Panty Basics pattern, this elastic is enclosed, and not seen. Try our super soft modal and bamboo fabrics to make your panties.
Sold by the meter. (1 meter = 39.3 inches)

This elastic is everything they say it is. However, when using it with the method of not enclosing it and simply stitching it on with a zig zag stitch, I wish it was a little more attractive on the outside. That being said, I just bought the Beverly's Craftsy class on making panties which I haven't watched yet, and it looks like she uses the method that encloses the elastic which would render my concern moot.

Nice elastic and I'm happy that it's latex free!
