Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and instructions with illustrations.

I loooooooove this pattern! I made view A & B, and both versions of the pockets are perfect! The instructions are SO clear and easy to understand. I wasn't confused at any point and it all came together really well! I recommend this pattern to anyone.


This is another great pattern from Made By Rae! It sews up quickly and the instructions are very detailed.


Such a great pattern! I love the flat front waistband and the elastic back!
