Easy and simplistic directions. I have been sewing quite a few years but wanted to see if there's anything I can pick up and learn. And I Was happily surprised when she mentioned about leaving the elastic hole, the opening right over the side seam, making it easier to get the elastic in. Thank you friend. I would tell anyone to listen to You and learn.
