To solve the problem of glueing the wires without losing the ability to stretch (or break the wires), I took two strands of a very thin (0.1mm diameter) varnished copper wire and a piece of 5mm wide thin but strong card board. I wrapped the copper wire around the card board in narrow windings, removed the card board carefully and stretched the wire spiral a little bit.
Then I glued the wire spiral (it's rather flat) between two 10mm wide layers of 0.15mm transparent latex (so you can see the wires). The cable strip is very elastic and can be glued along the seam of the garment.
