TESTER CALL: The Little Betty top and vest (APPLICATIONS CLOSED)


Thanks for those of you who expressed interest in testing my next PDF pattern - The Little Betty top and vest.  I am showing you the other two views today as well as linking up a tester application form.  I am having a long testing window due to Christmas.  I will have the pattern ready to be emailed out in the next 48 hours and feedback will not be due until Sunday 5th January - so about two and a half weeks to sew and give feedback. For more information about the pattern (including line drawings), please see the original Little Betty post linked above.


Isabella wears View A of the pattern - long sleeved with long cuff.  (You can see my youngest daughter Emily modelling View B of the pattern- short sleeved - here).




There is a button and loop closure at the back. The fabrics for both Isabella's and Juliette's tops are from Girl Charlee.

Juliette wears View C of the pattern - sleeveless....



This was a super quick photoshoot in the hot late afternoon sun today.  I am happy with the photos though...especially these ones!



If you would like to help me out by testing my pattern, that would be great!!!  I am hoping to recruit around 15 testers to test sizes 6 months - 8 years. This pattern is achievable for the confident beginner. Please only apply if you think you can make the garment and give feedback by the 5th January.  Also, I am looking for children who fit in to ready to wear in their age/size bracket (ie. aged 8 wears size 8, etc.).   You can apply by filling out the online form HERE.  APPLICATIONS CLOSED.
 
Thank you!!

Your girls look adorable in these photos!
If only we could get more cute knit fabrics on this side of the Pacific!! Would you recommend Girl Charlee? I've been thinking of trying either them or Spoonflower.

Hi Renee! Girl Charles are great but of course the postage is expensive:(
