A Pickle Safari Tank

My, I sign up for one test and end up being a part of many! Not that I'm complaining mind you, I love watching the pattern designers ideas become a reality. I help as I can by sewing up, pointing out faults, mistypes, etc in a pattern...can be something as simple as a fit test or much more...I love the whole process and the idea of being able to help out and a bonus - I get to SEW! :D

So this test, I put in my kids' measurements, and was told she needed me to test 23" chest - well - Miss M! you're up! she was so excited to get to test a pattern with Mommy. Her part? she puts on the pattern I make her, then she points out if it feels tight, too small, too loose, perfect, etc - all my kids have become quite good at this - even J at 2 will say "no no no" when he doesn't like a fit...
Once we go past the fit tests then comes the part of getting good pictures to show off the new pattern, and we get to make as many as we want! I think that's the funnest part :D

But, onto the pattern. This time it was a newer (to me) pattern designer, Pickle Toes Patterns. I only just found her and her patterns. The test I got to be a part of is now complete, and has become known as The Safari Tank - it is a plain tank, a quick sew, and definitely a much needed item in Miss M's wardrobe as she doesn't usually like tank tops - but boy! does she love this one! I think that speaks for itself if you ask me.
