Kwik Sew patterns are usually easy to read, understand and execute. However, this pattern leaves a lot to be desired. First - Don't use the size recommended on the pattern envelope for your measurements, make a size smaller. Secondly, the directions for sewing in the leg gussets make a usually easy process difficult. Use a previous reviewer's suggestion of sewing one of the gussets onto the leg front or back and then sew the entire side leg seam. Thirdly, the waistband directions for View A and B in Step 7 state "Stitch". Make sure to stitch the top of the waistband, not the seam attached to the pants. When attaching the waistband elastic- be sure to only stitch in the 1/4" seam allowance. This isn't clear in the directions even though all seam allowances are only 1/4". I was disappointed in this pattern. I usually like Kwik Sew patterns for their friendliness but this one is not the standard I'm used to from Kwik Sew.
