This pattern is such a fast sew, and pattern assembly took no time at all. There's only one pattern piece to put together (unless you do the ruffle bum). For the ruffles, there is a measurement chart, and depending on how you cut it, you can easily get 4 ruffles from it. I only used 3 because Lulu is so little. This pattern starts at size 0-3 mos and tops out at 18-24 mos so it really does have a wide range of sizes for you to work with. There are also photos with every step which I like because I really appreciate having a visual to compare where I'm at to what it should look like.
I sewed up a 3-6 month size because Lu is between those two sizes right now...so maybe a 4 1/2 mo?...there was definitely plenty of room to grow for her, and as fast as she's doing that, this will give mom and dad a few months of use before she is into the next size. It was a little bit long so if you have baby close, it wouldn't hurt to get a measurement to know how long to sew the bottoms. We decided to keep them long because she's sure not moving anywhere right now, and she'll be in a 6 month length before too long. Originally, I wasn't going to do the rufffle bum, but I couldn't resist at the very end and decided to add them. I can't help it; if I can slap a ruffle or bow on it, I will. The pattern does come with directions on how to do the ruffles if you decide you want some of those.
All in all, I think this pattern took me about an hour to do. That's from piecing the pattern and cutting it out to sewing it up so if you got yourself a pretty good groove going on, you could have 5 or 6 prs of these in no time. I really do love this pattern for a quick go to if someone needs a pair of pants for their baby, and I'm now in sewing for baby mode so you never know what I might find to sew up next!!!
