Posted in Tester Call

Hi there, it's me -- Mandalynn! Thank you {sincerely} for stopping by and supporting my dream and boho chic style. I hope you will find something in my creative space that inspires you. And if you are interested in knowing more about me, my designs and how I ventured into designing sewing patterns...stay tuned, I'll have more up on this page soon :)

Soho Maxi - Tester Call

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.
