Pattern Description:
Men's casual trousers or shorts pattern, with classic fly front and yoke styling

Pattern Sizing:
Size 30 - 40 waist. I used the 36 and graded down to a 35 at the waist. My brother has lost weight since he took the measurements though, so they're slightly big!

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?

Generally yes, but there are a few mistakes here and there. If you're an experienced sewer you'll probably be fine, but if you're a beginner you might want to also consult the Jebediah Sew Along on Thread Theory's website. I also found that very helpful for the fly front and the waistband finishing stages.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I learned lots of things on this pattern - I did my first fly front, first flat felled yoke, first bound seams etc. ! And they all turned out really well. I love the attention to the detail and the finishing touches - like encouraging you to bind the outside leg seam so that when it's turned up (on the shorts), a little binding peeks out

Fabric Used:
Olive cotton twill ordered from Mood Fabrics online. It had a little bit of stretch (which I wasn't expecting), but turned out fine.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I would! I made these for my brother for his birthday and he really likes them. I want to make him a pair of the full length trousers for Christmas now... More photos and constructions details at my blog: Cashmerette

Superb!! I bet he'll wear them to shreds. This looks like a pattern that does a good job of walking you through all of the details that make handmade better than ready-to-wear. Thanks for the France photos. I LOVE France.

Lovely! Great job, esp considering that it included a number of firsts! And beautiful background, too - are those lavender fields? I bet it smelled heavenly.
