The Kendra dress pattern release would not have been possible without an amazing group of ladies who volunteered to test the pattern. As many of you may already know, an important part of designing sewing patterns for the indie pattern market is asking other seamstresses to test the pattern before it is launched into the market place. This process ensures there are no mistakes in the pattern within the various size ranges as well as to make sure the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
All these lovely ladies below tested the Kendra dress pattern before publishing it, and I cannot thank them enough for all of their valuable input. It is so much fun to see the different fabrics that they chose, and to see how flattering the Kendra fit and flare style is on so many different body types. This is the first of the tester round-up posts that highlight these very talented ladies!!
Many of the ladies have really interesting blogs as well which I have noted below each of their photos. Enjoy!
Thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart!! – Ann
Kiran chose a beautiful black and white floral which looks absolutely sweet on her, and made for stunning photos! She wrote to tell me she wore her dress for her kids school concert recently. Thank you Kiran for all these amazing pictures.
Kiran said “I love this dress so much!’.
April’s dress came up all roses!! She looks adorable. The pink roses even match the pink in her hair! I love it!! Check out her blog at Stitchinggears where she talks about sewing and lots of diy projects.
April says “Thank you for having me! I really love this pattern (I call it my “June Cleaver dress” and my husband kept complimenting me on it). I enjoyed learning new/different techniques.”
Nadine made her dress in a pretty blue and white floral, perfect for a garden party!! Please visit Nadine’s blog, Feebricolo, where she talks all about sewing!
Nadine says “Thank you for letting me test your pattern. I like the fit: comfy and dressed at the same time!”
I love the bold print that An chose for her dress and the fit and flare style is perfect for her curves. Please visit her blog, Diskordias Curvy Sewing, where she talks about EVERYTHING CURVY!
An says “This pattern is gorgeous. The empire waist is flattering on a lot of body types. The instructions were very clear and I absolutely love my KENDRA!”
