I'm not certain why people sign up to test a pattern. Is it for a free pattern, to be a part of something new, social media exposure, curiosity, a new challenge or something entirely different? Whatever it is, it's the part of the process of designing a pattern that's most important for me as a designer. Using the input from the real, hands-on working of a pattern by different people can take it from good to great.
The testers for the Morrison pattern covered all sizes in both views of the pattern and different fabrics. I had returning testers, experienced testers, beginning sewists, new testers, busy working women, grandmas, nursing moms (not sure how they did it!), people pushing themselves out of their comfort zone and even my BFF! I'm humbled and amazed by the generosity of the testers and how willing they are to share their time and expertise. A heartfelt "thank you" to all of you. I couldn't do it without you! And today I want to share with you some of what the fabulous Morrison testers made during testing.
Here are just some of the Morrison Testers and their beautiful makes. Some made dresses, some tops and many of them made multiple versions of each! I included links to either their Instagram or blogs (if they have them) so be sure to check them all out!
