My awesome pattern testers knocked this one out of the ball park! I love how each “Plum” blouse turned out during the testing process. Each tester chose such different wovens creating really unique-to-them looks. So with out further ado, here are my tester’s versions:
First up is Aimee from Capture, Craft, and Cook. She whipped out this version in no time and her fabric choice was really cool. It looks so great on her! I am now on the hunt for a similar fabric. Her take on “Plum” really showcases the print so well.
This awesome geometric printed View A version was sewn up by Miriam and it turned out wonderfully. The blues and purples are so calming and the print placement is just right! I also think the neckline hits in just the right spot.
Another amazing View A was created by Marie-Fleurine from Sew Mariefleur and the use of that border print was something I never even thought of when I was designing the pattern. It looks effortlessly chic! Now after seeing this it has me keeping an out for something similar.
Cat created another summer worthy View B version (with shoulder seams) out of this cool fabric (you can find her on instagram here) I also love how she styled it with her necklace, it turned out terrific.
Melissa from Rebel and Malice take on a View B “Plum” is fantastic! I think the print on the fabric is subtle yet eyer-catching at the same time. It turned out really fun and I think could easily be styled in so many ways.
Last but not least is Katie’s take on “Plum” (you can find her on instagram here). She sewed up another View B version and graded between two sizes for this one at the hips. It looks so comfy and put together all at the same time. It is just plain delightful!
A huge thank you goes out to my amazing pattern testers! Seriously, my patterns wouldn’t be half of what they are without the time they put into sewing, reading instructions, checking pattern pieces, giving feedback, and taking photos. Their attention to detail and fabric choices always rock! Thanks so much, ladies!
As a little side note: the “Plum” blouse can actually be turned around if desired. I designed it with the high front neckline and lower back neckline, however, there is enough ease that you can actually wear it either way. 🙂
