Hi Tanya and Lauren,
I’m having so much fun making the hacked Flexi shorts. All was going well until the point about where to sew the waist elastic.Seems to be 2 schools of thought, either at the side seams in the green and white striped shorts or at the ruched mid point as per the instructions, or is my brain going sideways??
