Very easy to sew and looks fabulous!

I am very new to sewing and found this pattern very easy to follow and sew. I even tried french seams (instructions on T+T blog) for the first time with great results! Will make this again and again. Sizing was good too.

Tree climbers - loved it!

I had a really good experience with the pattern. It is easy to use and understand. And i love that i can print the pdf version over and over again, because i think the kids will want to grow wearing those pants!

Versatile Tree Climbers Pattern

The Tree Climbers pattern is a really versatile and easy to follow pattern--lots of options and easily modified for greater variety. The finished product fits my child well and is comfortable for him. Very cute. My only suggestion would be that the pattern include instructions regarding placement of the pockets. One could, of course, ignore those instructions and place the pockets where they liked, but I always appreciate a place to start.
