Thank you to all the people that have made and reviewed the Fancy Pants pattern. Below are links to a selection of reviews and some of the things they said about it:
"It's a super simple and quick sew". "This pattern is quickly becoming one of my favorite and one of my most sewn!".
"Not only is the pattern digitized beautifully with easy to follow dashed/dotted lines for cutting (those of us with B&W printers love that), she has made sure to arrange the pieces so you are printing as few pages as possible. If you have never sewn with knits before - THIS IS THE PATTERN FOR YOU!!! "
"It's an easy and fast sew and you can have so much fun with it- specially with the back panel... you can use contrast fabric, add a fun design, change the orientations of the stripes or just leave it as is!"
"The Fancy Pants Leggings are her first pattern, though you’d never know it – it’s one of the most thorough, professional patterns I’ve ever used. The leggings are so quick and easy to sew, and come together so nicely – I highly recommend this pattern!"
"This pattern is a joy to sew! Laura goes above and beyond a simple a pattern and basic instructions by providing a thorough explanation of sizing, descriptions of different kinds of knit fabrics, and tips for sewing with knits. It’s really kind of like taking a mini-class in sewing with knits. The pattern itself is well designed and well explained in a step by step format with plenty of photos."
