I don't have this pattern, but it looks like she's probably lining up the middle of the crotch with the alignment of the drawstring holes. When I first started making soakers and longies I used to start my gusset at the beginning of the round until I realized that my drawstring bow was just slightly off-center when tied. I move my marker when I get to that point so that the crotch gusset is centered with the drawstring holes.

You are welcome! Today was such a long day (or should I say yesterday ). I'm trying to figure out what size prefolds to order for Charlie right now. I love the medium GM trimfolds we have (which are 14x16) and those are the majority of our stash. I bought a dozen GMD reds off of FSOT and I'm thinking they are too small The light brown seems like it is just about the same size as the trimfolds, but I'm wondering if I should just get the dark browns and fold them down if I'm going to have an extra dozen not in regular rotation. Not sure if that made any sense at all

Now it makes sense. I havent done eyelets yet (scratch that I did but then frogged cus i skipped one of the YOs apparently) so I didnt realize it had a practical application.
