Baby Soft Buttonhole Elastic 3/8 Inch Quantity = number of yards
Polyester, latex. Custom milled for DSS and imported.
Small scale buttonhole elastic, perfect for adjustable leg diapers. Just like our Baby Soft elastic, this knitted elastic does not narrow when stretched. It is a fine webbing that stretches out when you sew it, then gathers in, without the stiffness of typical polybraid elastic. It has a similar effect as Lastin but is easier to apply.
Use buttonhole elastic for adjustable leg openings and waists of cloth diapers. Also adjusts waistbands on clothing, and any other application where a variable amount of stretch is needed. Please keep in mind that for baby items, the adjustment button should be sewed on securely and checked regularly so that it does not come loose and present a hazard to baby.
Baby soft elastic contains natural rubber latex, if you need latex-free elastic choose Lastin instead.
Sew the buttonhole elastic into an encased leg seam, tack down at one end and leave the other end open. Sew in a small hidden button (3/8" to 1/2" button). This way you can size the diaper leg opening to be just right for any baby.

This is great, I love the softness it does not leave red marks when used in cloth diapers! I have some I made a year ago and they are still working well!!

Also works great as a minor waist adjustment for adult/kids slacks. Sew a button on each side of the inside of the waistline, then tack down several inches the elastic so you can use the button holes in the strip to tighten/loosen the waist of the garment as needed.

This elastic is amazing. We were cutting the button holes as the baby grew, but now they are cut for us!

Perfect size for leg elastic in cloth diapers but now I can adjust it depending on which twin is in the diaper. Holds up in the wash.

I've used this elastic for one-size diapers, and it's great. The same elastic is still going strong after over 1 1/2 years of use. It's easy to adjust and perfect for one-sizes.

This buttonhole elastic is the best and the shipping is super fast which is the 2 most important things I look for when ordering for my business. The buttonhole elastic is a perfect fit for my leg openings in my ruffle bloomers.

This is just a much lighter weight, more stretchy elastic then what you find in the FB commercial diapers. I am not expecting it to last as long, but it is inexpensive and would be easy to replace.
DSS--The thickness and stretchiness of elastic do not indicate how long it will last. We stand by our products as top quality.
