UPDATE: Testing has closed for this pattern, but if you would like to be involved in future pattern testing, just follow the blog to receive posts when testing opportunities come up – Thanks – Liz xx
After weeks of drafting, digitizing and writing instructions, I am looking for sewing pattern road testers to test my newest pattern due for release shortly, this is my first ladies pattern (one for the mamas) so I need all new testers to put it through it’s paces.
So if it is about time you made yourself something (even if it is something practical 🙂 and you would love to put a new pattern to the test then keep reading:
Do pattern testers get paid?
Sadly no. Pattern testers do it for the love, a free copy of the completed pattern, and my eternal gratitude (also any relevant blog links, social media shout outs etc).
What would I need to do?
You would to take the time to sew up the pattern from the instructions and write up some feedback for me. You do not need a Facebook page with 50K followers or a super popular blog, but some solid photography skills and a model to show off your creation, to us and the pattern buying public, would be greatly appreciated.
What kind of feedback do you need?
Well basically we need to know if the pattern can be made easily from the pattern. If the instructions are clear and easy to follow and if there are any typos etc. We would like feedback on the fit too. we are not looking for feedback on the style of the pattern from testers because everyone has different taste and lets face it, once the pattern is in testing stage that boat has sailed 🙂
Do I need to be a certain size to be a tester?
We are looking for testers in every size that the pattern is available in. Check out the size chart below for available sizes/measurements.
Do I need to be in Australia?
Nope, not at all. As our patterns are sold all around the world you can be anywhere. You do, however, need to be fluent in English so that you can proof read our instructions.
So what would I be testing?
Good question 🙂 The pattern that is currently up for testing is the M is for Moto Joggers:
M is for Moto Joggers is a multi-sized ladies jogging/lounge pant pattern with moto detailing (optional), side seam pockets (optional) and an elastic waist band. The pattern is designed to sit 1 to 2 inches below the natural waist, with extra room across the hips, a very slightly dropped crotch and skinny/tapered legs. It includes several different length and cuff finishing options and the option to add a decorative tie to the centre front.
Perfect for trendy jogging pants, comfy lounge pants, drape-y slouch pants for wearing with heels, stretch shorts, capris or PJ pants. This is a super flexible pattern and a nice quick sew, perfect for beginners (and everyone else).
