what do you mean by "secure stitches were used on each end"? for the life of me i can't seem to visualize that.

Hi
I just do a little tack at each end- a couple of sticthes. (With the sewing machine for speed.
It just helps hold the pieces together so you can control the seam. When you have a woven/stretch fabric combo for the seams I find the stretchy panel can grow and you end up with a massive amount of excess seam- even of your pattern pieces are correct.
The stitches just help me make sure the tension is correct on the seam so I don't pull too much and end up with puckering. Hope that helps :)
