Coachella Shorts - Tester Round-up

July 16, 2014 1 Comment

Wow! I still can't believe I launched my first pattern last week. I wanted to share with you all the fantastic tester photos.

A HUGE thank you goes out to all my amazing testers and to Lauren Dahl of Pattern Workshop. They were all so supportive and Lauren's course gave me all the tools I needed to make my design come to life. If you are interested in designing your own patterns, go check out Pattern Workshop (I can not say enough wonderful things about this course)!! 

I have to admit the testing phase was a blast and not as terrifying as I once had thought it would be! One of the most exciting moments of testing (one which I will never forget) was when I received Sophie's email after sending out the pattern. Her Coachella Shorts were the first pair to show up in my inbox and it was such an amazing feeling! 

It has truly been so wonderful to see all the beautiful shorts the ladies created. If you create a pair of Coachella Shorts don't forget to post on FB or IG and tag with #coachellashorts.

The Coachella Shorts were fine-tuned during testing and a bit more ease and length were added to the final pattern. Instructions have also been included in the pattern for making adjustments to the width and length in case the little one's measurements you are sewing for doesn't fall perfectly into one size.

The pattern is available here on the website and also on Craftsy. I hope you all love sewing this pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it!

xoxo,

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!
