    3. Sew the upper cups to the lower cups (align the notches and place the foam so the two pieces butt up against each other but don’t overlap).

    5. Finish the bottom edge by sewing FOE (fold-over elastic) to wrap the raw edges. Use a zig zag stitch of 4 wide and 3 long. Pull the elastic gently while sewing to make the cups turn in slightly - this will help prevent gaping.
