    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 I LOVE these pants!, 12/19/2013

    Reviewer: (Summerville, SC, USA )

    This is the best fitting pattern. I have been making these for my granddaughter for a couple of years. She is very petite and although short not as short as small. Most pants are so baggy and since she is now 10 she isn't interested in "baby" pants. I make her a size 7 and add length. I can't say enough about how nice the fit is of these pants!


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A staple. , 8/23/2013

    Reviewer: (Utah, USA)

    Having just finished up my fourth pair of these pants (so far, for different kids) for the season, I declare these a wardrobe staple! The fit is great and has awesome details that I have come to expect from the always amazing Oliver + s. I just love the waistband, every time my "v" lines up perfectly it makes me smile. A must have pattern (even my boy says so!).


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Good for boys too, 7/8/2013

    Reviewer:

    While the pants can look very girly (and really sweet) with the ruffles, made up in denim with some topstitching they make fantastic boys jeans as well. Fantastic fit with no unwanted "eyeful" when the kids bend over! The top is delightful with the yoke detail and I followed the tips on the forum and added a little length.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adore these pants!, 7/6/2013

    Reviewer: (AMHERST, NY, United States)

    I have only made the pants. I was super hesitant about them, because the yoke in the front gave me 1970s leisure pants flash backs. But all these amazing photos in the Oliver + S Flickr group made me give it a try. (Always check the Flickr group for great inspiration. Never be intimidated, as many of these are made by women who could barely sew before Oliver + S, but are now quite accomplished because of the instructions of these patterns.) The fit is great. My daughter is long in the torso, and has a bit of a belly. The fit rides right under her belly and covers her fully. I made two pair. In one pair I made the elastic in the waist too big and as a result, when she bends, they can ride low and flash diaper. The other pair, I followed the excellent directions more closely and they cover diaper flash just fine. For the designe: first, the yoke is not very deep, which I liked tremendously. It was the right proportion to be a charming detail instead of a 70s nightmare. :) Now, compared to an average pair of pull on pants, there are many more parts. The pockets. The ruffles (if you add them). The side inset at the bottom of the leg. But all these design details mean that when you are done, the pants you have are really quite the thing. The ruffles girly up the pants, or left off make them just as appropriate for a boy. The pockets given you endless design opportunities as you can embroider the pockets with fancy stitching, or use a coordinating fabric or thread. And boy, oh boy, do the little ones love pockets. I made a cute pair using an embroidered teal 21 wale cord for my 3 year old. We had a 6 year old guest who was eyeing with a proprietary stare as I was finishing the product. When her mother came to pick her up, the guest said, "I need a pair of those." The true seal of approval of fashion, jealousy and avarice! ;)


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perfect Pair for Play, 7/4/2013

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, SA, Australia)

    This trouser pattern is the nicest fitting one I have ever made. An average-to-slim fit with a good leg length. Lots of fun details and extra girly ruffles that can be added. Pockets for fun on the back and for function at the front. Just the right size for a hanky. The waist yoke/band is a very clever design. If you would like a peep I blogged a tutorial here http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/after-school-frolics-part-two.html The top is so sweet but be aware it is a wider cropped style. I suggest you lay the pattern pieces against a top your child has to determine the desired length. My children do tend to have long torsos and I found I had to add several inches to cover their tummies. The wider neck and double button opening have a gorgeous 'Japanese pattern' feel with the back up of oliver+s fine directions. I also blogged this pattern here http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/after-school-frolics.html I adored this outfit and my daughter received so many compliments when wearing it. They were the perfect trousers for a dress loving girl. A truly delightful little outfit.

    1. In the first printing, there was an error in the first column of Page 3. Step 1 under the heading "Prepare the front pants (all views)" should read, "Pin one cut front pocket lining to one cut pants front, with right sides facing and matching the pieces' curved pocket edge and top edge."
    2. In the first printing, there was an error in the third column of Page 3. Step 1 under the heading "Prepare the side panel" includes the partial sentence, "(Note that the topstitching". Please ignore this text. It should have been deleted from the instructions.
