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?ok - viewed the video on Jalie pattern website on construction. This was easier than reading the instructions - lazy I know!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? nicely drafted pattern
Only tricky bit is getting the waist elastic on
Fabric Used: cotton lycra

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:none - this was a trial

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?yes

Conclusion: a nice pattern and an easy sew however my material only had enough stretch around the width and needed more stretch in the length. The pattern recommends a 4 way stretch and this pattern definately needs it.

Good on you to do all that stripe matching on undies! I didn't know Jalie had videos - thanks for that tip.

Good looking pair of briefs! I always struggle to find nice elastic. Where did you source yours from?

Great looking shorts, hopefully the next ones will have all the stretch needed. Thanks for the review!

Your undies look great! For better elastic instructions use their old pattern 2327. Go to Jalie website, click at upper right"pattern instructions" and look for 2327. I have both of these patterns and I just ruined a pair of undies using the new way.
