Current Tags What is a Tag:
Fabric:Cotton Twill  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: misses pull on skirt in three lengths and pants or shorts I made the pants without the trim down the side

Pattern Sizing: 8-14

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? similar

Were the instructions easy to follow? yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
it was very easy to sew but I didn't like the fit I didn't like the big pockets in the front The legs were wrinkled and creased, proabably because the fabric was too heavy for the pattern
Fabric Used: white heavy weight cotton twill

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
none
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I wouldn't sew it again

Conclusion: My fabric was too heavy for this pattern. The front pockets were huge and it was like an apron across the front inside. If you decide to make it, leave a larger opening in the waistband for the elastic and drawstring. The opening on the pattern is much too small
