Edge Casings    - A casing is a fabric tunnel, secured by stitching on one or
both sides, providing a space for the elastic, a drawstring, or a combination
of the two, in order to adjust the garment's fit.
   1. Stitching lines are parallel to each other and to the garment's edge.
   2. The casing width allows the drawstring or elastic to adjust easily and
        to stay in place during wear.
   3. The raw edges of the casing are finished to prevent raveling.
   4. The elastic or drawstring is not twisted in the casing.
   5. Openings in the casing are neat and durable.
   6. Casings for the elastic are stitched closed after the insertion of the
Applied Elastic Waist    - On an applied elastic waist, the elastic is applied
directly to the waistline edge. This method not only finishes the edge, but
also provides for some size variation of the wearer.
   1. Appropriate elastic is used for the garment's purpose.
   2. The elastic is of an appropriate width and length for its location.
   3. The elastic is stretched evenly during its application.
   4. Application stitches are secure.
   5. Sufficient rows of stitching, with matching thread, are used to prevent
        the elastic from folding over on itself.
   6. Seams in the elastic, if present, are lapped or butted.
INTERNAL WAISTLINE TREATMENTS    - Internal waistline treatments
are used on garments that do not end at the natural or modified waistline, but
utilize some means of waistline treatment to provide definition. Internal
treatments may occur at a raised waistline (Empire), natural waistline, or at a
point below the natural waistline.
Elasticized Waistlines   - This method produces waist definition in a
garment with no waistline when elastic is sewn directly to the garment at the
desired location and no separate casing is used.
   1. The elastic is of an appropriate size, width, length and type for its
        location and use.
   2. The elastic is stretched equally and stitched evenly and securely
        during its application.
