Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Oh yes, it looked exactly like the pictures-thrilling!!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
O+S patterns have the BEST instructions ever. So clean and concise. Plenty of helpful photos. Plus the website has a discussion forum where you can ask questions. You'll learn so much from these patterns that you can apply elsewhere. Cargo pockets on the side were quite difficult and the only place where I could have used more guidance, but it's my own lack of experience, I'm sure.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I absolutely loved the darts at the knees I loved the three part pant with double top stitching. It adds so much to what at first glance appears to be a basic pant. These pants are special special special. I really liked the instructions and the way the pattern itself was presented on white pattern paper. It made tracing much easier. There were helpful tidbits about attaching the ribbed knit to the collar.
I used Kaufman 21 wale corduroy in bright fire engine red. I did a surprise waist facing with gray and white gingham check. I did the same on the underside of the side cargo pockets for a peek-a-boo.
The shirt was made with tencel jersey in soft yellow and heather gray. I used Baby rib knit for the collar. The tencel jersey really is quite thin, not ideal for the shirt in my opinion-at least as an outfit with the cords I made. On its own, perhaps, but something more substantial would have been better. Even a sweatshirt material. You could get more structure with anything other than a tissue-weight knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added the checked facing and peekaboo to the side cargo pockets. I also brought down the belt loops a bit since the pattern showed them rising slightly above the waist band-I didn't like that look. If you feel like being lazy you can skip them all together. Kids don't wear belts anyways!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This is an absolute trace pattern and sew again and again and again. I'm making them in linen, chambray, and Kelly green cord. Even if you have never made pants I highly recommend this pattern. It's very generous in explanations/photos.
Love it. If your child runs tall, I would add an inch to the legs. I made these as a gift. The boy is 88% for height and they are a tad short.
