Pattern Description:
Pull-on shorts A or pants B, C have front pleats, side pockets, separate waistband with double elastic casings, elastic leg casings, patch pockets and flaps with buttonhole closure; shorts A are upper thigh length; pants B are above ankle length, self-carriers with buttonhole closure, casing with elastic cording and purchased stopper, back patch pockets; pants C are ankle length with double elastic leg casings and back patch pockets.

I made view C (although I actually cut view B and added 3 inches).
Pattern Sizing:
XS - XXL
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.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
These are so easy to sew up. They are designed to be loose fitting, and as they have elastic at the waist, there was no need for any fitting (for me). Nothing to dislike really. You either like this style, or you don't. They are incredibly comfortable and perfect in this drapey viscose for the hot weather we are currently enjoying.
Fabric Used:
A patterned viscose fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Nothing aside from adding 3 inches of length.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Maybe and yes.
Conclusion:
You either love these or hate these I guess. I love them.
