Pattern Description:
A "pattern for the family" - with various styles for men, women, boys and girls.

I made View A and view B
A: Women's and girls' low-waist bikini with enclosed elastic at waist and leg openings. B: Women's and girls' high waist bikini with enclosed elastic at waist and leg openings

Pattern Sizing:
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes (ish)
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes - but I have made lots of knickers before. Has a guideline for elastic length - I really like that!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I like the fact that there is a whole range of styles and some for the boys so I can use this pattern a lot!

I liked the encased elastic at the openings - it means I can use cheap "normal" elastic instead of more expensive lingerie elastic if I want to just whip up at set of everyday knickers/pants

Fabric Used:
jersey scraps left over from making T-shirts. My materials did not have the recommended amount of stretch so I had to go up a size and use slightly longer pieces of elastic.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I will be sewing view B again

Great pattern which I shall use again and again.... next to try it out for the boys...

I can't add this to the pattern stash contest BUT I am glad to have this out of the TO DO pile! My blog has more patterns for knickers that I have been testing out!
