    boy pants
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 08/23/2016
    I have an 18 month boy who wears a 3T in this pattern (his dad is 6'4") and i am due to have a little girl in 2 weeks, so I have been stocking up on fairly gender neutral patterns. I have sewn the pants 4 times now, and love them! they will be a staple this winter. I can't wait to add ruffles and make the shirt for my little girl! Later. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was the pant yoke, I have trouble with it every time, usually the length. Not so much that I can't adjust to make the pants turn out, but enough to aggravate. I've started waiting to cut that piece til I need it. Pretty sure it's something I'm doing, but 4 pants later I've only learned how to get around the problem, not what I'm doing wrong. But they are super cute, especially in fine whale corduroy!

    Cute but perhaps a bit too much detail
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 02/12/2016
    The fit of the blouse was very accurate as well as great instructions for the assembly. I would suggest a slight alteration in the yoke as it can be confusing for a child to tell the back from the front of this top when they both have the same button detail with very little visible difference between the sides. It would have been simpler to assemble with less mix ups from the wearer if the back yoke were all one piece with the buttons limited to the front of the blouse.

    Best Kids Pants Pattern Ever
    Reviewed by on 02/06/2015
    I have been sewing these pants for my kids for 3+ years now. I have made more than a dozen pairs. The pattern is so fabulous for both boys (just leave the ruffles off) and girls. I love how I can mix different prints for the panels and pockets. The details of this pattern and the top-stitching make the finished results just beautiful.

    Lovely and Simple Pattern
    Reviewed by on 12/29/2014
    I haven't tried making the pants yet, but I was able to make two shirts in record time for my girls to wear on Christmas morning. Even with a few errors that had nothing to do with the pattern and everything to do with me - I messed up sewing the yokes twice, and picked buttons that were too large - it was relatively stress-free and quick, and made a gorgeous and comfortable finished product.
