My very first post.
If I counted right I have completed 28 pattern tests with 14 different pattern designers in the last 11 months. I'm a serial pattern tester and I love it. I also wrote every paper in university the night before it was due, so there might be some history there. I'm a deadlines girl. I need a deadline or it will linger in my to do pile for eternity.
I was chosen a few months ago as one of the Brand Ambassadors for Go To Patterns. It has been really fun sewing up some of the patterns. I love some of the photos I took on Sunday. It's cold and wintery here so they were taken indoors but luckily it was a really sunny day out so the lighting was great.
The two patterns I used were the Skipper Top by Sew Much Ado and the Go to Leggings by Go To Patterns. The tri rainbow fabric is a gorgeous custom knit I ordered from Yvonne at Black Rabbit Fabrics. The only pattern modification I made was to sew on the heart like an applique rather than make it into a pocket like the pattern calls for.
We had so much fun taking these photos. For some reason she kept wanting to stand on her head. I can't complain because it made for some pretty cute shots.
She even put on her butterfly wings and tutu (gifted to her last Christmas by a good friend who made them!). I love this photo because it shows off the pinks in the fabric!
So there it is, my very first blog post. That really wasn't so bad, I think I'll do this again some time!
PS I haven't totally figure out the settings yet so if you are interested in checking out some of my past pattern test projects you can check out my instagram feed @michelledschuh
