The pattern was easy to understand, only complaint is that the size lines seem to be hard to read because they are so close together

Love this pattern, the fit is perfect, and the way they are cut they are perfect for adding embroider too. Can't wait to make more!

I am making the shorts length for my daughter right now. This pattern is very well-written and has useful tips and tricks throughout. It's very easy to understand and there are tons of photos. I also love that it includes so many sizes. I will probably be able to use this pattern until my daughters won't let me sew for them anymore LOL!
