So easy to do up and so fast. With or without the pocket! Will work for boys and girls. Very, very cute.
I had the pleasure to test these pants for "Oh Sew Kat" and was it a fun pattern. Very easy to read instructions, pictures are fantastic and they sew up quickly. The real working pocket is such a great addition. I can't wait to sew a few more pairs up soon.
These were so much fun. I really liked planning out new color combinations to build my Animator wardrobe up. They are such playful dolls - they deserve these playful clothes. ADORE the pocket! :D
