    PR isn't letting me upload a pic right now, so here's a link:
    Finished Garment Photo

    Pattern Description:
    Misses pants/leggings.
    I made VIEW B.

    Pattern Sizing:
    I purchased the L/XL packet, then after reading other reviews, exchanged it for the smaller size pattern set, and made a medium--a wise decision, because there is plenty of ease with this pattern (uhhhh, it's made of stretchy fabric).

    Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
    YES, sans sequins/sexy heels.

    Were the instructions easy to follow?
    Yes, very.

    What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
    It allows me to make a cute pair of tights for ~$5 in under an hour. What's not to like?
    BONUS: I can also feel smug when I wear them around someone who paid $39 for similar sweater tights from Urban Outfitters

    Fabric Used:
    I took a page from Etcetorize's review, and tried a sweater knit-type material (with a 4 way stretch) from JoAnn.

    Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
    I brought them in at the knee, because I'm not about the scrunchy look.

    Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
    Yes and yes.

    Conclusion:
    What a great, fast and simple sewing project to bring me back to sewing printed patterns after a 4 year hiatus.
