At the end of last year I launched four new sewing patterns including the George sewing pattern in collaboration with Project run and Play as part of the Lounge Library collection. As always my patterns went through testing by a fab group who test most of my patterns.
They are an eagle eyed lot and make sure I get to know about any mistakes or things that could be made clearer before I launch my sewing patterns. It is also a great way to test out the different sizes.
The testing for me is equally nerve wracking as it is exciting. Its always a worry the pattern could be a complete disaster and after hours and hours of work to get to that point that thought feels brutal. The exciting part is getting to see how the testers interpret the styles and how it looks on their models.
The George sewing pattern was well liked by both makers and the wearers. Here are the results….
I have to give a special mention to Debbie’s boy because his name is George. What a model and what great fabric choices. I could actually create a whole post on his outfits alone. He now has numerous George hoodies and Joseph joggers too!
None of them any less epic than this one!
George hoody number two!
Just incase you thought that one was a bit ordinary!! Dino-tastic!!
How cheeky and cute is this young man in his tonal blue version.
The hood has an optional lining giving an opportunity to add an extra designer touch with a patterned hood lining.
The George hoody is not just for boys!! here is a great practical version for Rebecca’s little girl.
A peek of that funky hood lining.
Emma made hers in a cosy fleece fabric with contrast plain sleeves and pocket.
Showing how it works equally well for older kids and younger ones.
Abi added some of her own special touches to her version, with thumb holes, hood cords and pocket positioning. She even made a co-ordinating mask!
Karen teamed her George hoody with the Joseph joggers in Alpine fleece for a super snuggly and very practical P.E kit.
I love how these results show what a versatile garment the George sewing pattern makes. Across the ages for both boys and girls.
