Additional Notes

This sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations. Please note: the sizing listed in the tables above has been converted to US sizing. The sizing listed on the pattern packaging is in UK sizing.

The actual pattern is easy to follow AND there is a sew along. I used the sew along more than the written instructions. The hardest part is the zip. I spent two days puzzling over the zip BUT it was my first ever invisible zip and my second ever zipper.
My main complaint is the lack of shorten/lengthen lines on the pattern pieces.

The pattern has helpful illustrations and is easy to follow. This is a great pattern for someone just learning to sew pants.

This is a great, easy to make pattern with perfect sizing! There's also an option to make it high waisted and adding a waistband. Will dfefinitely make more in the future! 👍
