Amazing pattern!

I don't think I've ever written a review for a pattern before, but I find it necessary for this pattern. The level of detail, both in the construction of the pattern as well as the writing of the instructions, is amazing. While the extra steps can be time consuming, they are well worth it to make the garment have a beautiful and clean finished look. I love that such details were included, as I haven't really seen that from other patterns

Great trousers

For the first time in my more than 30 years of sewing experience, a pair of pants fits without having to make any adjustments. The instruction are very clear with the step by step photo explanation. the finish of the pants is beautiful

LOVE the photo instructions and details!

While I have not yet started these trousers, I am so happy to see actual photographs illustrating the instructions! All the other PDF patterns I have use drawings; just not the same. I appreciate the fine sewing details in the instructions also. This will be a garment that lasts for many, many years. These sewing details have gone by the wayside with "fast fashion" and it's wonderful to see proper garment construction details included in your instructions! One of the reasons I sew is to make quality garments that last. I hope to see more patterns added to your collection.

Love making beautiful clothes
