I need some help!

Done! Thank you all so much! Within just a couple of hours I had all the help I needed! Once again you all have swooped in and saved me just when I need you, thank you for that. I chose testers on first come basis this time, whoever offered to do the size I needed first got the job, but I will definitely keep this list for the future patterns! I made a special folder in my inbox and filed away every comment so I know just where they will be!

Again, Thank you so much!

Hey friends! I am in a bind! Could you please help me?? Please!? I didn't have quite as many testers for the Miss Alice as I planned and I just don't feel right about sending this pattern out there without being thoroughly tested.....so....is there anyone out there willing to test this baby and send in a review by Saturday? I would like to have one extra tester for each size ( 3mo- 12 yrs) with sewing levels from advanced beginner to expert. You will get the tester pattern in PDF first and then later you will get the final printed copy in the mail, you will also remain on my tester list for other patterns if you choose to stick with me....and I hope you will. The first ones to respond will get the job! Tell me what size you would like to test, what level sewer you are, and leave me an email address where I can send the pattern. Please remember to leave this information so that others can also see if there is still a size range needed. I will close the comments tomorrow, BUT... IF the size you wanted is already taken just remember that if this ever happens again I will probably pull from this list of willing testers instead of shamelessly begging for help again. I will try to send out the tester patterns by lunch tomorrow! Thank you!!!!!

Oh, I would love to help! I don't really know what level I am at, maybe a little past advanced beginner? I don't know how to sew a button hole or put in a zipper yet, my next things to learn. I could test a size 7 if it's available, or just add me to your tester list. Thanks for the fun opportunity!

I just reread, I could have a review in by Sunday, but not Saturday, so may not work for me.

Denise said...

Please let me help! I would consider myself a very accomplished seamstress, if I do say so myself. I would love to try a size 6. Thanks for the fun challenge.

Could you check your e-mail, please? I e-mailed you Sunday or Monday and never heard back. Thanks! I have my fabric all laid out, I just need my question answered first.

Myra said...

I can test any size you want, larger size ok, I will do my best to get it done. My level is prbably between advbeg and intermediate. Email myrayeretsky@sbcglobal.net

I'd LOVE to test for you. I'd like to test a size 8. I'd consider myself an intermediate beginner.
My email is provost_mique@hotmail.com
I could get it done by Sat!

Mique (as in Mickey) said...

I just realized you put "advanced beginner"- I {think} I could be considered that. ;)

Rebecca said...

I'd love to test out one of your lovely patterns! I have girls in size 3, 5, and 7 so any of those sizes would work great for me. I've been sewing for 10+ years and have done lots of little girls dresses from patterns and my own designs.

Seems like you might already have enough testers but I'm happy to help. I'm probably an advanced sewer but can view things from all angles having taught several people how to sew. I'm sewing everyday so timing isn't an issue.
Let me know!

Mika said...

I could test any of the smaller sizes, my daughter is in prob. the 6 mo. right now if that helps, possibly the one. I'd be happy to do both (assuming I could get 2 done by Saturday!). Email is bokamo@gmail.com. Thanks!

Suzy-Homemaker said...

Oh sorry...sbauter@gmail.com for suzy-homemaker :)

Kimberly said...

I would enjoy being a tester, my girls would be a 10 or 12; my little one would be a 6 or 8. I prefer not to leave an email, but if you could leave an your email as a comment on my blog, I would send it privately to you.

I am definately an advanced seamstress, I've been sewing and designing since I was 8! I studied fashion marketing and design in college (no degree, though - didn't like the marketing part) I did study pattern drafting.

Kimberly said...

Oh - I guess I would be expert, and I could make any size, In my orginal note, that's just the sizes my girls are - It really wouldn't matter.

Beth said...

Would love to test... 18 mo or size 2?
I'm probably advanced beginner or intermediate?
Thanks,

I would love to help, but I don't have enough fabric around and can't get to the fabric store in time. If you need any testers in the future, I currently have a 2-month-old daughter and a 10-month-old niece that I could be a tester with.

Dakotasews said...

I'd love to test your dress. My girls wear a size 4-5 (slim), 7 or 8 (plus) and 10 (average build). I'd consider myself advanced beginner. We actually have the next two days off from school so this is one time I could finish this. My blog - dakotasews.blogspot.com

Thanks!!

I have two others of your patterns (the Madeleine and the Lily) and I LOVE them. I would be happy to test a girls size 4 or 5. I consider myself an itermediate sewer.

Dakotasews said...

Hmmm, I looked at your size chart again, and my 10-year-old might be closer to a size 12, rather than 10.

LadySnow said...

Oh Samantha... I feel like such a heel for not getting this done for you. With my computer out for that one week and now just waiting for our little one to arrive...I don't know......But I will make it...I promise. :-)

Anna said...

I would love to test the pattern! I could test either size 1 or 3 or both by Saturday. I'd say I'm an advanced beginner, stepping towards intermediate.

jellaan said...

I could do a size 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 or 8 if you need somebody to do any of them. Always have tons of fabric on hand, so any time you need a tester I would be happy to help. I'm probably an advanced sewer (been sewing regularly for 7 or 8 years).

I'd love to, but I guess I'm late. I have a 10 and a 6x. :)

Jean said...

Oh, and I'm pretty experienced. Long-time quilter, clothes for several years, I do heirloom. But not amazing or anything.
