 Lolita Patterns | Big Thank You

About a month ago we put a call out for testers of our next pattern, Sugar Plum.  The number of virtual hands that went up was amazing.  We are so honored to be a part of such a supportive and giving group of sewists.  We wanted to thank everyone who volunteered.  We had more volunteers than we needed for this round but will keep your names on a list for future pattern testing.  We have several incredible patterns in the works so your turn may be just around the corner.

A special thanks goes out to all those who tested Sugar Plum.  We have spent countless hours working this pattern and thought we had every “i” dotted and every “t” crossed.  Turns out we missed plenty of things and you ladies gave us so many more ideas that we wanted to incorporate.  The finished dresses were all gorgeous!!  From the incredible fabric choices to the impeccable construction to the model-esq poses, you all went above and beyond the call of duty.  We can’t thank you enough for your time and effort.

We are now in the process of making the final edits on the instructions.  The pattern pieces have been sent off to our printer.  We will get proofs next week.  Our packaging is in the works.  We’re so excited that our dream of starting an indie pattern company is finally feeling like reality.  Thank you everyone for supporting us along our journey.

    • We will be debuting various tester versions when the pattern is released. Several testers also have blogs of their own where they will also be posting them! We can’t wait….there were some truly magnificent Sugar Plums made during the testing phase.

  3. …and thank you for ladies for the opportunity, it’s great to know your patterns are thoroughly tested and it must be super exciting for you to see all the versions roll in, yay, can’t wait for the proper big announcement.

  4. Thank you for the opportunity. I look forward to the release and especially to seeing the other testers versions. I bet you two are excited as well. :-)

  5. […] We were very happy to see that  so many of our testers were able to sew together Sugar Plum despite some oopsies on our part.  We can’t thank our guinea pigs testers enough. […]
