Cut out all pieces. Lay the two FRONT pieces RIGHT SIDES together. Lay the GUSSET piece on top and line up. Pin the elastic to all seam allowances except for tie loop and crotch opening. Stitch using zig-zag.
Fold all TIE LOOPS in half and stitch using straight stitch.
Turn TIE LOOPS RIGHT SIDES out and place seam lines in the middle.
Fold TIE LOOPS in half concealing the seam lines and place into the tie loop sections on the FRONT piece. Ensure to place between FRONT pieces and not between the GUSSET. Stitch with straight stitch.

Create the ties by folding the TIES in half lengthways following the dashed line on the pattern piece. Stitch the seam allowance with zig-zag stitch. Trim the seam allowance to half then turn RIGHT SIDES out using a seam turner.
If you do not have a seam turner:
Alternatively, create the TIES by placing a length of string into the top of one tie piece, fold in half and pin. Stitch across the top to secure string using straight stitch. Carefully zig zag down the length avoiding catching the string.
Gently pull the string and help guide the tie right side out.
Unpick the top stitches to release the string.
