Did it Look Like the Pattern Photo: Yes.
Were the Instructions Easy to Follow: Very much so.
Likes or Dislikes: I LOVE that there is no zipper. That makes it so much easier. I also like that you can use cotton. Cotton is wicked easy to work with, but it's hard to find a pattern that doesn't need a stretch knit or a fabric that is less stiff and more silky.
Sew it Again/Recommend to Others: Yes! I made the shorts twice! It's a perfect first pattern and it's a 2-hour project for a sewer with a little bit of experience.
