I was one of the lucky people who could test out this pattern

I just love lazy Sundays - or any other day we can be lazy and if you can do that in style? Why not! You never know who rings the door right ;-)
My girl... She is the difficult one, on yes, on everything ;-) One day she wants it all pink, NEVER wants to wear a skirt or dresses and ALWAYS wants to wear sport shoes... Not how I pictured having a girl but hey, what can we do, we take as it comes and we try to compromise. So this pattern is just perfect for her. We had a little thing - I want it short mommy - Ok, I 'll make you the short version - finished - not short enough but I told her that for our colder and windy days here in Alabama those were just perfect! Pfiew- she went for it! I let her choose her fabric - Marine birds White and she wanted yellow to match. I know right? No pink? Oh well, I am good, I love the combo!
Printing the pattern, assembling the pages, measuring - wow - my girl has grown - but still a bit skinny on the waist compared to her length - same for my boy so it seams.
I took 1 inch of the waistband - because of that. The elastic in the waistband is actually just perfect for kids - flexible playtime!
It took me the first time about 2h, everything, from printing, copying the pattern, cutting the fabric and sewing it together. Not bad, I like it!
A few pictures of my girl posing...
My boy, the easy one - all tough he is all about the "cool clothes mommy" he still loves to wear what I make him. He said, for me short to mommy. I took him to choose his fabric - SO HAPPY he choose the beatles! I've been wanting to make him something like FOREVER with this fabric. They were playing together and bam, 1h later, pants ready.
There is nothing difficult about these pants. So all I can say - go and buy it! You won't regret it. It is from size 12 months till 12 years and if you are creative, endless possibilities!
I know how I will finish my next pair!
