As you all know by now, Cashmerette Patterns are designed for curves, but that’s hardly one “body type” – there are tons of different ways to be curvy. That’s just one of the reasons why pattern testing is so important – and why I don’t only do pattern fitting on myself.
I also love seeing patterns (my own and others!) on a wide variety of body shapes, so with the launch of the Concord T-Shirt I thought I’d share some of the t-shirts made by my fantastic testers! (These are just a few of my testers who already took blog photos, but expect to see more coming up in the blogosphere…).
Let’s start with Andie over at Sew Pretty In Pink, who was a prolific Concord T-Shirt maker! It’s surely the best compliment to a pattern designer when your testers already have a wardrobe of them before it’s even launched. Andie’s a big fan of the scoop neck and the tunic length, and she even made one for her Mum.
Next up, Gillian at Crafting A Rainbow! Gillian has also whipped up multiples, and got some particularly snazzy pics of herself out and about. She’ll also be sharing an awesome Concord T-Shirt hack soon…
Steffi at 81gradnord made three Concord T-Shirts, but my favourite is surely the hacked bow-back version she did – so lovely! She’s going to be writing a tutorial (in English) soon, and when it’s up I’ll let you know.
Carolyn of Diary of a Sewing Fanatic went for a classic white tee – and has worn it all winter!
Next up, we have the lovely Tanya Maile of Mrs Hughes and wait for it… she’s not in a vintage dress! What can I say, I’m proud to have convinced Tanya to try separates… and they look so good. I love Tanya’s classic Breton take on the Concord T-Shirt.
Next up, we have the fabulous Elaine of GrandmaElaine, rocking this awesome animal print-inspired Concord. She also did a fabulous job with the V-neckline.
Finally, the fabulous Meg at Cookin’ and Craftin’, proving that BRIGHT ORANGE is in fact a total neutral colour that goes with everything. Top marks!
I hope you found this round up inspiring!
And finally, if you’d like to be considered to be a pattern tester in the future, make sure you’re signed up to the newsletter because that’s where opportunities will be announced:
