Really great pattern! Directions are clear and easy to follow. This is my first pair and they really turned out nicely. The pattern would also be easy to adjust if the contour doesn't fit quite right. My favorite thing about these is that there are no darts used to create the contour, so there are no weird spots poking out in the center of the pad. Just a nice, smooth finish on the contour shape. Nice!

Very nice pattern. I ended up having to tweak it a little, as I did not have the exact fabric on hand for the back, though I think the recommended fabric would be excellent. I also made the nursing pads a little smaller, to better suit my needs, and the pattern still worked wonderfully. The curve is perfect. No weird poking or anything like that. The strip of fabric across the top not only helps with the curve, but also keeps liquid from getting out through the middle. If you are looking for a dependable nursing pad pattern, don’t be afraid to start with this one. I tried others before this, and they were not worth my effort.

Very well written, simplistic, easy to understand pattern. However, I found that the nursing pads were a bit large (for my taste) and is far more contoured than I expected. Also found that I used just as much material for one breast pad as I do for my regular 5 inch round ones. If I used this pattern again, I would likely scale it down a little.
