Casing (construction) – Sewing Word of the Day

A fabric “tunnel” sewing into a garment or sewn item to hold boning, elastic, cording, etc.

Casing can be built into a pattern. An example of this is folder over elastic casing in a waistband.

Casing can be added nearly anywhere using a fabric tube, ribbon, bias cut fabric, etc.

Boning casings are made from strong fabrics – such as coutil.

Elastic casings are often times made with lighter fabrics or soft ribbon to reduce bulk.


I am a sewing teacher and cosplayer as well as mom of two boys. I have been sewing since I was 6 years and never stopped. Sewing is my art and my passion, which is why I love to teach.
