A method of making an elastic composite comprising: conveying a first sheet of non-woven material along a machine direction; wrapping a section of elastic about the first sheet, thereby applying elastics cross directionally across the first sheet; applying a second sheet of nonwoven material onto and into union with the first sheet having elastics applied thereon.

Whereby the elastics extend from the union through one side of the union and encircle to return into the union through another side of the union; and cutting through the first and second sheets and the elastics to generate an elastic composite, thereby separating the union into two halves, each half including a first material layer and a second material layer, whereby a plurality of spaced apart elastic elements extend from the first half to the second half to define an exposed elastic region there between.
