I usually do not leave negative reviews, but felt obligated in this case. The pattern and instructions are very unprofessional. The pictures are blurry, the instructions have multiple grammatical errors ("your" does not mean the same thing as "you're") and the pattern pieces are hand drawn. For $6 I would expect much higher quality. I ended up not following the instructions and doing it my own way because I didn't like the number of raw edges that were going to be left on the inside. When doing waistbands or leg bands I like to encase all of the raw edges within them so there is a nice clean finish. I can see that this would be a pretty easy pattern for beginners, but if you are looking to make a quality, professional looking pair of pants, you are going to have to make some adjustments. This is the first negative experience I have had from Pixie Faire, I typically am a huge fan.

Easy pattern to follow and easy to do. Works well for beginning sewers
The only one I have had time to sew is the 1930's ruffled play dress. I am so very pleased with this pattern and will be making more of these dresses.
Everything works just as it should. Love the wishlist. These are the only patterns I use for making doll fashions. The Malibu Beach Cropped Pants for AG dolls are perfect. I have made 3 pairs so far. Moving to shorts next. Can't wait for more LJ patterns. Fran
