I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all my testers who took a chance on my first pattern! It was so exciting to see the pictures and feedback come in during the testing period. I really appreciate all the thoughtful and detailed feedback that everyone provided me. It was absolutely invaluable!
Other than editorial changes and error corrections, the major changes made after testing that affect the fit of the pattern are below:
- Change the guidance on how to pick your size to clarify that your upper chest measurement should be used instead of your full chest measurement. This resulted in a better fit for my larger chested testers.
- Change and clarify directions on how to install the neckband to avoid gaping
- Increase the shaping on the hem of the tunic in the Moon size range
Some of these issues were caught early on and are reflected in some of the Tester finished garments.
Alexandra sewed size Moon Size I in the Crop length in a cotton jersey.
Christina sewed a Moon size K at the bust and M at the hips in Tunic length in a cotton knit.
Danielle sewed a Moon size H in the Crop length in a cotton knit.
Janey sewed a Canyon size H in the Tunic length
Marci sewed a Canyon size H in the Tunic length, shortened two inches
Molly sewed a Canyon size E in the Crop and Tunic length
Pam sewed a Moon size H in the Tunic length
Tequila sewed a Canyon size A (sized down 2 sizes) in the Crop length (shortened 8”)
Thandi sewed an H at the bust blended to a J at the hip with a darted full bust adjustment
Toni sewed a Moon size O in the Crop length
Thanks again to all my testers!! I really appreciate every one of you!
