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?Fits well & easy to put together
Fabric Used:Supplex from FabricMart
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I copied the pockets from a RTW pair of Supplex hiking shorts since I like to have one for maps . I also used a tutorial for adding a zipper shield & added my usual 3/4 inch to the crotch depth.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes and Yes. Really like this pattern.
Conclusion:This is the 2nd time I've made shorts using this pattern.
Since we had a long hiking weekend planned for the White Mts. of New Hampshire I wanted to finish them up quickly & was able to make them up in 2 evenings. The Supplex fabric is quite sturdy so I used a Microtex needle.
