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 very easy although I vary to my own taste.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is your quid essential, can't fail, comfortable PJ/lounge pant pattern. It is going to be my TNT PJ pattern for the big people in our family.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I do adjust the crotch curve depending on the member of the family I am making these for. I also serge each seam after sewing, press to the back side, and fake flat fell each seam. I just find that items that get washed a lot, and are worn frequently are better served with reinforced seams.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Boy, I just like the pattern a lot. Sometimes you need a pattern with little fuss to make something comfortable. I also like to use this pattern in conjunction with RTW tops that I digitize and embroider to match the fabric in the pants. It becomes an easy way for me to make very unique individual gifts for my family.
This a wonderful beginner pattern, lounge wear stable TNT, and I am going to use this pattern to make my self a pattern. I like the versatility of having different lengths.
