Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, exactly like the photos.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. I had no difficulty with the instructions at all.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The upper edge to crotch length is quite long for these leggings, and when I compared the pattern to my daughter's RTW leggings, it was much longer there. However, instead of shortening that area, I sewed it up without making any changes to see what would happen. Well, that extra length is actually perfect for going well over the top of the diaper. Her RTW leggings don't always cover the top of the diaper.
A stretchy lycra knit with excellent recovery, found in a fabric dive somewhere in the Garment District. It reminds me of Underarmour performance leggings.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added 2" at the bottom of the legs. I like the look of scrunched down leggings, and I want them to fit all winter.
Unable to just make some plain old black leggings, I embellished with the same buttons from the coordinating tunic.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will definitely sew this pattern again. Leggings are so perfect for toddlers, and I can sew these on my serger in no time. I foresee an evening of churning out 5 or 6 more pairs.
Easy, practical, and very useful pattern. Lots of room for creativity with embellishments and color blocking. Great way to bust through a fabric stash too!
