Pattern Description: Leggings and pants. I made View B.

Pattern Sizing: XS-MED, I made the XS.

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? This is my second time around with this pattern (after many times making similar styles for my 2 year old) so I didn't use the instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love how simple it is, with only one pattern piece. A couple quick passes through my serger and a simple casing for the elastic, and you're done!

Fabric Used: Merino wool/organic cotton/spandex jersey from Fabric Mart.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I shortened the rise, and changed the curve of the center back seam. They're still a little long for me (I'm 5'4") so next time I'll probably shorten them at the petite line.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is a great pattern for a quick sew, and results in a versatile wardrobe piece. I'm sure I will sew it again!

Conclusion: You can see a photo of the alteration I made to the center back seam on my blog.

I love the sound of one pattern piece. Looks good.
