Some feedback from our testers:

“Love the pattern! It’s a great way to sew comfortable ruffles with knit.”

“The sizing was perfect. Pants usually run a little short but these were slightly long and easy to hem so she won’t outgrow them.”

“Love the options for a yoga waistband or an elastic waistband.”

“LOVE the pants pattern!!!!! I need to make about 10 more for this kid! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!”

“A quick sew and easy to put together!”

    It would be nice if at least the two pattern PDFs were combined. I honestly don’t mind the instructions being separate from the pattern pieces, but, I’d much prefer not to have to open two separate files just to print the pattern (I’ll combine them here- I know not everyone has that option, though).

    But, more importantly, page 3 of the pants pattern is stuck on page 3 of the waistband pattern, too- should delete that so it doesn’t cause any confusion. :)

    I’m very happy to add the pattern to my collection, though! Thanks- can’t wait to get to it tonight!

      Yes sorry Chris! Somehow the PDF kept an extra page and I thought it had been deleted. Thanks for the catch…’s been fixed. Thanks for the feedback. I kept the patterns separate since the elastic waist is also an option and I try to save people as much ink as possible. I could add a combined version but I’m afraid it would be too confusing :)

        Ah- gotcha on the separate files. I had my husband combine it all for me, so I’m happy. I really do love having the instructions as their own PDF- so, yay there! 😉

        Everything printed up nicely and fit together perfectly (as usual), I’ll be whipping up pants tonight! I’ve really been looking forward to this one- thank you!
