Do you think you'd like to pattern test for In the Folds?
Have a read of the questions below and then fill out the questionnaire underneath.
What is a pattern tester?
A pattern tester is someone who tests out a sewing pattern before it hits the market. This provides a chance to have many sets of scrupulous eyes looking over the pattern and instructions, as well as an opportunity to see how it fits a range of different body shapes.
What do I get out of this?
You get a free copy of my pattern to test, and then an updated version (with any changes / modifications from the testing process) when the pattern is released. You also get a massive virtual high-five and a cocktail if we ever meet in person!
Do I have to have a blog to be a tester?
No you don't! I am more than happy to have testers that aren't active on social media. If you do have a blog, I would for you to publish photos of your make, as long as it is after the release date of the pattern - and you are under no obligation to do this.
What skill level do I need to be at to pattern test for In the Folds?
Any level is fine by me. I need testers with a broad range of skill levels, so that I know my patterns are ready to face the sewing world, which is very diverse!
What if my measurements range between multiple sizes?
This is totally normal! I am happy for you to grade between several sizes. Just let me know what you did when you send through feedback.
How will I know if I get chosen?
You will receive an email outlining how everything works and a digital copy of the pattern and instructions, so you can get started.
If I'm chosen to test, how long will I get to make the pattern?
You will get two weeks to make the garment and submit feedback. If something unforeseeable comes up within the testing period.
