Pattern testing: Straight Grain's Hanami top/dress.

After my Flip This Pattern-post on Frances Suzanne I think anyone who reads this blog  knows that I am a big fan of An's (from Straight Grain) work. And I felt lucky when I was chosen amongst the undoubtedly many applications to be a pattern tester for her newest top and dress pattern Hanami.


Being a tester for An is not a lot of work because she knows what she is doing and have done most of the work for you. So basically what you have to do it choose between her myriads of great options that her patterns come with like dress or top, flutter or tulip sleeve invisible zipper or a fancy crossed back and Peter Pan collar or no collar. AND she was even letting us choose our own combinations - to actually have free choice as a pattern tester is quite a luxury. I hope she got all options tested!


So what did I choose? Dress with flutter sleeves and invisible zip. The zipper is necessary if you want the Peter Pan collar - and of course do I want that, right!
I love that it is so narrow. Well, I kind of love everything about this dress. So flippin' cute, seriously! Simple and easy to sew but with enough well made details for it not to look simple.
And I thiiiink Wilma likes it too. Ha, look at that big smile.
