Ava Dress Sewalong
Each pattern goes through testing, and I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but the testers are the BEST. They help me enormously when it comes time to release new patterns. From typos and clarity of instructions, to garment fit and drafting mistakes, the testers let me know where the pattern can be improved. They also give me multiple perspectives to consider for both beginners and more experienced sewists alike, and clue me in to any fitting challenges I might otherwise miss on my own. I am endlessly grateful for their support (and we have a good time, too!). I've been lucky enough to have an amazing group for all of my pattern tests, and the Ava test was no exception.
So, let's see what they made, shall we? Below are photos shared with me with permission to share from testers.
