Another trick for slippery or hard-to-manage fabric is to use special pins. They are u-shaped so they have 2 points and when you stick them into the fabric they often don't go in exactly parallel which encourages the pin to stay put and not slip. They aren't worth while for regular sewing but they are priceless for satins, rayons, or light weight chiffons and other slick and slippery fabrics that shift easily. I imagine that your elasticy fabric might be one I would use the pins on too.

BTW - So so nice! The top looks very professional!
