Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern when you were finished sewing? Yes
Were the instructions complete and easy to follow? Yes - she uses illustrations and not photos.
Fabric used: I used Modern Jersey from Spoonflower and a cotton/lycra knit for the top. A stretch denim for the shorts, with woven in the pockets.
Did you alter the pattern in any way? I blended sizes. On the shorts I did not add in the elastic, as when I tried them on her they fit perfectly. She did say the back popped out a bit when she wore them, so next time I will put a little elastic just in the back. I also didn't do the welt pocket perfectly, which was totally my error. Late night sewing. The length on her shorts are in between the shortest and next shortest for the size 14. I had her try them on and put them at the length she wanted. She gets picky.
Was there anything you disliked or would change? No
Would you sew it again? I will definitely be sewing these again for Fall in the longer lengths.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes. They have nice details and finishing.
Do you consider the pattern beginner/intermediate/advanced? Advanced Beginner. The Chinos have a zipper fly and welt pockets, which isn't hard to do, but time consuming. Just follow the directions and you should be fine.
Does the pattern include layers for easy printing? Yes
Seam allowance used in the pattern? 3/8”
Is the pattern cut or no cut pages? Cut
