Soho Maxi - Tester Call

October 19, 2014

The Soho Maxi Pattern is almost ready for testing! I'm looking for several testers that will be able to help me test this next week.

Testing will begin Thursday, October 23rd and run through Wednesday, October 29th.

The Soho Maxi will be available in sizes 2T-14yrs. It will also include instructions to make a knee length version. I hope you all adore this dress as much as I do! I am oh so in love with it...that back gets me every time! This dress was made for Andover Fabrics' quilt market booth and Harbor was so sad to see it get mailed off a few days ago. I will definitely be placing an order for more Handcrafted by Alison Glass to make her another one!

I'm looking for all sewing levels, some that have tested for me previously and others that are new to my patterns. If you are interested in joining our little testing party and would be able to complete the dress and feedback between October 23rd-29th, then go ahead and submit the form at the end of the post. You will receive an email in the next day or so if you are chosen to test.

When I heard Week 3's theme -- Sound of Fashion -- iimmediately took me back to a memory of dancing under blue skies with my girls at a music festival. Their carefree movements that day re-inspired me to go with the flow and to live life to the fullest. Drawing on that inspiration and my family's love for indie music -- rock, reggae and folk -- it was only fitting I created a pair of flowy festival designs with a bohemian vibe for my look.

I'm going to be real honest...when I heard the theme for Week 2 -- Super Hero and Heroines, I freaked out a little. It is sooo out of my realm! I immediately started brainstorming though and was so relieved within a couple hours I had a plan. And then of course didn't sleep well that night because I was working out all the details in my head. I love those full force, creative moments even if it means I don't get much sleep!
