|I'm torn between rating this pattern "Easy & Great for Beginners" and "Mediocre Pattern."|
Pattern Description: From the book: "These shorts will fit women of all sizes with a fit based upon your own measurements. They are truly customizable, as you will control the easy as well as the length to create a perfect-fitting pattern. Get ready for a slumber party!
Pattern Sizing: Customizable
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This pattern creates a lot of extra fabric at the front, between the waist and the crotch. At the back this is not a problem as the butt fills it up.
Fabric Used: I used some flannel I've had for years.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I followed her instructions, except I did a smaller hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I won't be sewing it again because I don't like he excess fabric issue.
OK basic pair of pajama shorts if you can live with the excess fabric. For more pictures and an in-depth review, check out my blog post on these shorts.
