I am never going to buy pants from the store again! Love the options in this pattern and the instructions are fantastic! I have already made 4 pairs and I can see myself making a lot more in future!

Instructions were clear, but I did not like the fit of the pants. They were to tight in the hips.

My granddaughters love the pants I made them from this pattern! So easy, too!

Love these pants. Nice fit up top. Very comfy

Clear instructions, and easier assembly than I anticipated (I did skip the pockets, was a little intimidated to try those on my first time around). The pants came out beautifully, and she’s loving them!

The directions were easy to follow, though I’m not sure that I lined up the waistband correctly. It ended up looking ruffled at the top back, but when the elastic is extended, it is hardly noticeable. I have only tried a muslin with the 5T pants, and I used a suiting fabric scrap. I chose back pockets only and simple hem to test the fit. I think a lighter weight knit would create a better overall look, but I’m curious to keep practicing with wovens and will try a few more variations of hems. I read through the tulip hem tutorial and it looks way easier than I initially thought! Overall, the fit is decent and the directions are very clear (especially for someone who is new to patch pockets— those turned out beautifully!). I just recommend making a muslin first!
