I just ran into the same problem with the step for topstitching at the fly. I almost fell into the trap but I had read your review and remembered there might be a problem here. There is! I think that topstitching step they show you should only be for the triangle at the base of the fly OR if they really want the topstitching to be at the triangle and all the way up, the bottom layer of the fly has to be folded back or the fly will be sewn shut. This is an older pattern and interestingly I have not had a problem with newer KS instructions for men's patterns with a fly. I'm thinking they rewrote them to make them clearer. Anyway, beware of Step 4 where it says to "topstitch through all of the layers."

I think the illustration for top-stitching the fly makes it look like it should be sewn shut. I've made this pattern 3 times, and every time I almost sew it shut.

I've had this pattern for about 10 years and have made it for myself and my kids about a million times. It's a really good basic pattern, glad you found it. I don't see a problem with the fly, most guys don't use them anyway, you probably could have left it sewn shut.
