Elastic waistband woe.

Hi, just run up a simple skirt for dd. Double thickness as lined. I've gathered waistband to a length of elastic. Elastic is visible not in a waistband. I've sewn directly onto elastic. Looks fine but stitching rips when dd pulls it on. Tried zig zagging to allow more give but still ripping. Any advice? Thanks.

Ok I've figured it out. I forgot to stretch the elastic as I was sewing it on leaving no give.
