I purchased this pattern so that I could use up some of my knit scraps. The girls high waisted bikinis are easy to put together quickly and my grand daughter loves them. The pattern ran a little bit small for her (not a skinny kid) in the elastics, so I adjusted the amount of elastic, adding an inch for the legs and a couple inches for the waist. You might want to measure waist and thighs of the wearer before you cut your elastics. I also tried the boys briefs version and was thankful for the video for the tricky parts. Once I made one pairs, I got over the learning curve and relied how easy they are. I'll be making more! Also, I love the layered patterns! No confusion about what line to cut. Now to try some for myself!
