|Pattern Description: Elastic waist shorts with external pockets.|
Pattern Sizing:Lots of sizes come with this pattern. I bought the pattern for my daughter, but thought I would try it out for me as well.
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?Some days I don't concentrate so well, and can't follow instructions. That is me, and not the fault of Jalie. I didn't realise that the waistband piece was a facing and not a separate waistband until I read another review. I was worried that the rise was higher than I wanted, so I left the waistband off and serged the elastic to the shorts and folded it down. Now that I know it is a facing piece, I will use the pattern as drafted.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Easy, quick, lots of sizes
Fabric Used:Stretch cotton.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:Omitting the waistband facing, as described above.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?To be honest, these don't feel perfectly comfortable on me. Not surprising, as I didn't like the Jalie jeans on me, even though everybody else loves them. Horses for courses I guess. My daughter has a completely different body shape to me, so I still expect to use the pattern for her.
Conclusion: A useful pattern that seems to fill a hole in the pattern market.
