I LOVED this pattern. SUPER simple to do. I ended up still making the high waisted pants but cropped them and didn't use the suspenders (partially because i got frustrated turning the straps inside out and will eventually complete later). Here it is worn at the easter bonnet parade in NYC!
The pattern was clear and easy to assemble. I had a bit of trouble with figuring out the Adobe Acrobat settings, but thankfully the instructions given for printing was clear. The pattern was easy to follow and I had it all assembled and fitted in a day and a half. I must add that I found the crotch too low even in view B but solved this by trimming the top down and adjusting the angle of the darts. Overall, a great and easy pattern!
I struggled a bit with piecing the pattern together ( but the instructions are complete) and, in the end, it came together great. I love the final result! I will definitely be making a few pairs. It's easily adjustable to your measurements/height. Really lovely trousers and the instructions are easy to follow.
