It's easier for me to knot when I tie the knots at the top of the elastic (which of course you just flip it over when done).

Not sure if that makes sense at all.
That sounds about how i do it. Except the flipping over part. I just do little portions at a time and pull the knots down to the bottom of the elastic. I guess im doing it right. I just dont like the messy appreance of the knots. Is there a good tutorial somewhere on how to add the satin waist?
