Chalk and Notch | Joy Pattern Testing

The latest pattern from Chalk and Notch is here and it is SO GOOD! I know I say this literally every time she releases a pattern, but it’s hard not to say when it’s completely true. It’s probably no surprise that I’ve been constantly wearing this jacket since finishing it!

The Joy Jacket is a fully lined, mid-weight jacket with an exposed zipper, optional hood and two pocket options and optional hood and hem drawstrings.  This pattern is named in honor of Emily’s (Enjoyful Makes) mom who used to wear a jacket similar to this.  The love and sentiment that went into this pattern is amazing.

I’m excited to share with you the latest pattern from Sew Caroline: the Coffee Shop Dress!  This will surely be another great addition to your wardrobe and a summer staple.  Why?

Sew Caroline | Primrose Peplum Pattern Test

Let me preface this by saying, I’m going to try to contain my excitement and not type in all caps.

A couple weeks ago I saw Caroline posted in her Sew Caroline Facebook group looking for a few pre-testers for the Primrose Peplum.  I thought about it for 0.2 seconds and signed right up.  I had never tested a pattern before, but it has been something I’ve wanted to do. I love Caroline’s patterns so I would have been silly not to sign up!  When I got the email from her I was so excited that I immediately started planning different versions I wanted to make.  I remember seeing the sneak peak she posted last fall and thinking that I’ve been waiting for a pattern just like this. This was such a fun experience to play even the smallest role in the process and it’s one I hope to have again!
