Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Exactly!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very! Love the piping instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that I have all the sizes in one pattern, however I don't like that the sizes are shown in color on the pattern rather than different kind of lines. I don't have a color printer, so it was difficult to figure out what size to cut. I traced the pattern pieces onto interfacing so they are nice and sturdy for reuse.
Fabric Used: Bottomweight cotton for the pants and quilting cotton for piping and linings.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None. I love this pattern just the way it is.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will definitely make this pattern again.
Conclusion: I think the piping might be too fussy for a little boy, so if I make these pants for my grandson again, I'll just put the pockets in plain. I hope to be able to add a photo of him wearing these. The shirt in the photo is store bought. I haven't got the confidence to stitch all those buttonholes! I did make the bowtie.
