She did her gathering stitches a bit different than I do and I think her way is better. Also, never heard of anchoring at the ends by wrapping thread on pins. I will try that.

Very informative video. I was struggling with gathering my skirt to my bodice pieces, and this video gave a good idea to ensure proper gathers. Thank you.
