Pattern Rating:I Highly recommend this pattern

This is a test muslin that turned out great and I've been happily wearing for a few days. I had heard that La Fred patterns run true to measurements, so I cut the size accordingly. But, as I sewed and tried on, I kept taking in the sides and up the crotch, so I ended up 1 size smaller than my measurements called for. My fabric does have stretch in it so that might account for something, but the pants are still on the loose side. Next time I will just cut the smaller size.

The instructions are very good and thorough. I like the waistband which is fitted but with elastic to give just a bit of flexibility. The back zip (invisible type) is very comfortable for me.
