Have already made 3 pair. Makes up fast and much easier than a long, formal type gown. Have made the pants in 3 diff type fabrics and all turned out great!
This pattern has clear, easy to follow photos and written directions. There's even a mini-tutorial detailing how to cut and sew chiffon-like fabrics for those who want to make a more advanced version of the pattern. Kudos to the designer for yet another easy, elegant design that's a pleasure to sew.
