Additional Notes

This pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

Excellent pattern, great fit, on trend design.

I've made several pairs of Landers, pants and shorts. I find they run big in the width. I measure into a size 10, but a size 8 really fit me best.

Instructions are easy to follow - a great intro to pants sewing. The button fly is a great design element and is straightforward to construct. I found that I had to slim down the pants considerably and may make a smaller size next time.

I liked the pattern a lot and it was easy to understand and use. The pattern block requires a pretty good amount of fitting for my body shape.

The Lander Pant pattern would be a great starting point for someone who is new to pants sewing! The instructions are great and there is an extra wide side seam allowance that makes it easy to get a great, custom fit. The exposed button fly is really easy to construct and looks great.

Excellent drafting and I love the large seam allowance on the side seams. Only thing is that I should have switched out the straight waistband for a curved one.
