    I like the womens 5 pocket pants, they look comfy, easy wear. I also think the polo is interesting, I have never made a polo before and it would be an interesting project to master.

    I am however a bit annoyed that the title says “13 patterns” when it is actually 6 with different hem lengths. Does anyone else find this frustrating?
