Snail Hunting? Nope! Just a Test!

So...what happens when in the MIDDLE of making a pattern the designer gets sick? I'm not talking a cold or the flu...I'm talking hospitalizing type sick...
Well to answer the question: the pattern in testing gets put on hold. Sometimes for months...

That's what happened with this following test I did...it was started June 2016 and finally officially finished February 2017. In the beginning it was to be shorts, and only shorts...in the end it became shorts AND pants!

Lovingly named the "Snail Hunters" let me share with you how this next test evolved...

The test started out as a fairly straight forward test, we were testing fit and instruction wording really...side panel with pockets in to keep all those snails in (or cars around here)...
the options color wise were fun to play with that's for sure!

 we even worked to prepare finals...(seen here with the PTP Pickled Pepper)


And then...the designer got sick. She put the test on hold to take time to get better...
Weeks passed...Months passed...
and she was better! Yeah!
But it was now cold for 60% of the testers as Summer had left us, Fall had come and gone, and Winter was here...
So instead of putting this pattern on hold longer, til the following Summer...she added a pants option...
We tested the length of the pants...
Until they were perfect!
 And we prepared to take our finals...

and then we turned in the final photos...and the pattern finally released!
