Two posts in one week? I'm on a roll! And I started working this week!
This make was a whole new kind of fun: I did my first test pattern!
Morgan from Thread Theory asked for testers for a vest pattern in March. She and her husband own a (mostly) menswear pattern company near Vancouver, B.C. I've made a couple of her patterns, and Mikey likes them quite a bit.
So when she called for pattern testers, I e-mailed her that day. Mikey LOVES vest, and I have made him quite a few using McCall's 2447.
Morgan named hers the Belvedere. (And she calls it a waistcoat — so cute. I guess that's a Canadian thing.) Once it's live on her website, I'll come back to this post and add the link.
I considered doing a real muslin but instead went with my usual wearable muslin route. We bought the main fabric from Fabric Recycles years ago, and I never had liked it as much as Mikey had.
