Testing Calls Itch to Stitch Zamora Hepburn Salamanca Seville

Testing Call: Jacket, Skirt, Top & Blouse Patterns

TESTING CALL CLOSED

The testing call is now closed. Thank you so much for your support! The Zamora Blouse is now available in the shop.

+++++++++++++

I’ve been laying low for a couple of months because I am working hard on four patterns. Now they are ready to be tested! If you think you can help, please read on! Because four garments are a lot for one person to test within the specified time frame, I will unlikely to choose a single person to sew all four. But in the form, you can check which one you are interested, and if needed, I will do some assignments accordingly. Thank you for your interest.

Timeline

I plan to start testing Tuesday, February 23rd, and would like to receive your modeled photos with your garments by Wednesday, March 2nd. But as always, if there’s any important change to the pattern, we’ll extend testing as needed.

Tester Selection

The chosen testers will be invited to private Facebook groups where we can discuss the pattern, share pictures and discuss revisions. Each pattern will have its own group, so if you are selected to test two patterns, you will be invited to two groups. I will send the invite/link to the email that you provide. So please make sure you enter the correct email in the form below.

In return for your time, effort, professionalism, input and participation, upon public release of the pattern, you will receive:

  • A final copy of the pattern
  • Feature you in a blog post that directs traffic to your blog/site/store/Etsy store

Please sign up using this application form if you are interested. Testing is one of the most crucial steps for producing a quality pattern. I appreciate your applying!
