    Surprise hit

    I ordered this because I'm looking for winter weather pants patterns that are work appropriate. I love this pattern for how tailored it looks, while being comfortable. I see many pattern hacks in the future of the future of thos pattern.

    Lovely pattern

    Instructions are clear and easy to follow. The pdf printed accurately and went together easily. Only made a toile so far which I made in a size 4. The sizing is accurate but I’m between sizes so will just reduce the seam allowance in places.

    I'm in love....

    I love this pattern! I've made two of the sleeveless version with wide legs, and they are so stylish and comfortable. I layer them with the Rowan bodysuit, and throw a blazer or short jacket on top. The pattern measurements are very accurate, and the small adjustment I have to make to all bottoms worked perfectly. I suggest looking at the blog posts about construction when you start, and sewing a practice placket - it's not hard, but having one under your belt before starting on the whole garment in the good fabric is useful. I'll likely make another of these when I have time, and check out another option - a holiday version in a comfy but beautiful fabric is worth thinking about for stylish lounging-while-eating!

    Perfect fit!

    Wonderful drafting meant great fit!
    I am an intermediate sewist.

    I made a 14 bodice and graded from the waist to hip to size 10. I didn't alter the rise.
    The fit is great sitting and standing but I might try adding a short piece of elastic to the back waist seam to pull it in a bit, but it's not saggy looking like some other jumpsuits seem to be!
    I love where the waist seam hits!
    I did make a toile version D out of a bedsheet which did reinforce, as the pattern directions mention, that the bottom of the placket is tricky.
    I might make another practice version. There is a blog post but it's much the same as the written pattern. A video tutorial would be helpful for this part, or a more detailed picture sequence. It wasn't completely clear to me. As it is super noticeable on your finished garment so it needs to be neat and tidy.
    I love the depth of the v neckline! Not too deep and not too high. 😊
    I think the fit is super cute and I'm excited I didn't have to do a full bust adjustment to get the bodice fit right! I think the 14 lies on my shoulders very well.
    I am planning another view D with brussels washer linen.
    Since the fit is so great I am excited to make many more versions for myself and daughters. Many less expensive patterns take so many tries to get the fit right, it just isn't worth it. MN patterns are worth every penny!
    Super happy with this purchase!
