Success!
Reviewer: Bev

I am almost done with the Mykonos shorts. Size 16 is too small and size 18 are too big and I didn't want to buy two patterns. I added a little bit to the 16 and made the seam allowance a little smaller and came out with a good fit. But the most exciting part is I figured out the fly zipper installation. Between the booklet and the tutorial for the Riva pants in the help center I made it work, and I only had to rip it out once! Now all that's left is the waistband. Just Curious - which weight do you recommend for these pants? I made them in the IL09 Feather.

Mykonos
Reviewer: Helena

The Mykonos patterns are too complicated for me, although it looked simple in the picture. The top is too "front heavy" with four pockets and the bottom is even more complicated so I can't use the pattern. I like simple patterns like those that can be downloaded, but the downloading doesn't work all the time.

Frustrating experience sewing the shorts
Reviewer: Rebecca

I was pretty frustrated by this shorts pattern. Haven't made the top yet. This was my first zipper fly pattern, though I've installed invisible zips and even a separating zip once, so I'm not completely new to zipper installation. I found the instructions and the markings to be insufficient. Sometimes I didn't know where markings were supposed to line up. The waist band gave me so much grief. I'm sure I did something wrong, but I reviewed every step as I did it and couldn't find any errors in my work, everything I did matched the diagram layouts but then didn't line up correctly. The waist band specifically didn't line up with the markings on the shorts and I had to make the pleats deeper so the waist would fit the shorts. Luckily they still fit me, so I'm not sure where I went wrong. There were no pattern markings for where to install the zipper, specifically where the top of the zipper should be, which was very frustrating. I guessed it should start ½" down based on the SA, but I'm not sure that was right either since the inner waistband now covers the top. Sometimes the instructions would refer to a piece and I was unsure which piece that was; for instance, it noted to sew the zipper onto the fly extension. Why not continue to include the pattern piece letters? I had to dig out my pattern pieces and see what was labeled as the fly extension. The diagrams were sometimes more confusing than helpful. I sewed the Charlie shorts and had no problems at all and expected a similar experience (that pattern gets 5 stars). I was very disappointed. Would not recommend to someone who isn't an expert, as it seems to assume some construction knowledge, specifically as related to the zipper fly installation. Also, as a general note on these patterns, I dislike that only 4 sizes are included. I have daughters who are young teenagers, and I would love to be able to use these patterns for them as well, but I am tall enough that my measurements usually put me in the middle size category which is far too big for them. Sometimes I also worry I need sizes not on my pattern sheet for grading. I wish we could add a second size range for a small fee, or that they would include 6 sizes instead of just 4, maybe have some overlap between the size ranges or something. Considering these patterns cost double what other premium patterns cost, it's frustrating to have so few sizes available.

Thanks for your honest review of this pattern. Please lookout for an email from me, Lauren. I provide 1:1 fit and pattern support for all of our Premium Patterns, and I'm always just an email or even Zoom Video call away to help you through any queries you may have about our patterns. We have a detailed tutorial for this type of Zipper installation in our Help Center too, and we have more tutorials for the Mykonos Collection in the works for those who would like photos to accompany the illustrations in your booklet.

The MYKONOS shirt is a perfect wardrobe staple, fun to sew, effortless to style and full of pockets. It's equal parts lunch lady, grandpa, french janitor, professional oil painter, teddy girl and rich glamorous auntie. I hope to see many of you try it out and get lost in the pockets and gender neutral ease of the silhouette. The instructions for the shirt are simple and clear. I was able to follow along with very few mistakes which is unusual for me on a cold sew of a new pattern. I had never sewn inseam chest pockets before, and although I didn't totally understand what or why I was doing certain steps, it all came out lovely and crisp in the end. There are many top stitching details throughout the shirt that add to the purposeful oversized yet tailored look. I found the construction of the shirt enjoyable and thoughtful, which is not always the case with often tedious button-downs.
