Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? No, because I varied it.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Nothing.
Fabric Used: Stretch cotton sateen.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made up the leggings version B. I am slim legged, so I used the medium size as I thought this would not result in a skintight legging on me, but a slim fitting pant, which is what I wanted. I raised the waistline to my natural waist. The pattern is in one piece- no side seams, so this was a very quick and easy sew. And, my strategy worked. So I used a one piece leggings pattern to make a pair of easy sew slim leg pants.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes.
Conclusion: I love this legging pattern for making slim leg pants - if you have skinny legs too, this might work for you.
