Additional Notes

This PDF sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with some illustrations.


It was easy to assemble the pdf (although I had the version with only 2 sizes per print out and they weren't nested, so that was a tad inconvenient) and the instructions for sewing it up were clear. Overall I like this pattern and would make it again - though I'd probably loosen the ankles slightly more this time!
