|Yes, I have two Swingline staplers I use as pattern weights!|
The only thing I changed from the video tutorial was to make the narrowest French seams possible. It wasn't the best idea - it just made tiny, bulky seam (if that is possible). It is not very noticeable, but next time I think I would either serge the seams or just leave the seams raw as the instructions indicate. It's a cute garment. I'd love to try to make something more like a boyshort or tap pant next.
