    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 So fun to make!, 9/9/2014

    Reviewer: (colorado springs, co, usaa)

    I just finished the pants and top and was amazed how quickly they came together. The directions and diagrams were clear and easy to follow. I love this pattern and will make more in the future.

    Reviewer:

    I love the simplicity of the patterns and the little extras in the way of ruffles, pockets and cut of fabric. I love Oliver and s for their very clear directions. I have encouraged other moms/grandmothers to start sewing for their kids/grandkids because the patterns are so clear cut. My grandaughter loves to shop for fabric and buttons for the outfits we create. It is a fun bonding experience because the project can be completed in a few hours.


    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.

  • Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern. To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers. The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing. Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.

    Errata

    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.
