Testers for large sized patterns - pants and top

Post by Darny » Thu Aug 04, 2011 9:04 pm

Looking for a limited number of testers for two different patterns, the pants pattern just needs a decent photo and I only need one person for this - must be able to sew appliqués and make the garment look good. Jessie Top also needs photos plus a couple of testers.
Only the size you are testing will be supplied so please measure and request the right size.
Preferably those testing the Jessie Top will have already tested or bought and sewn the Jessie Junior version as very limited instructions will be included.
I won't be accepting all requests sorry, and will be choosing based on sewing skills and ability to finish and photograph quickly. I would prefer to have the pants and top photographed by the same person if possible.

Dale Pants 128-158cm (includes appliqués)
128cm - waist 62cm, hip 70cm, inside leg 57cm
134cm - waist 64cm, hip 73cm, inside leg 60cm
140cm - waist 66cm, hip 76cm, inside leg 63.5cm
146cm - waist 68cm, hip 79cm, inside leg 66cm
152cm - waist 70cm, hip 82cm, inside leg 69cm
159cm - waist 72cm, hip 85cm, inside leg 72cm

Jessie Top 128-152cm
128cm - chest 66cm, finished arm 45cm, finished length 49.8cm
134cm - chest 69cm, arm 47cm, length 52.1cm
140cm - chest 72cm, arm 49cm, length 54.4cm
146cm - chest 75cm, arm 51cm, length 56.7cm
152cm - chest 78cm, arm 53cm, length 59cm

Chest measurement is taken at widest part of the chest under the arms. Arm measurement is from the shoulder edge to wrist bone over a bent elbow. Finished length is taken from the back of the neck.

Tester is required to compete the garment within a week and provide good quality photos on a child which will be used on the pattern as the pattern photo. Photos need to be taken against a neutral white background in good light with a good camera - 1mb minimum. Any other clothing and accessories need to be non branded and unexciting but clean and tidy.

I could test for you, won't know actual sizes until they come home from school. I can do tops and/or pants.

One boy has 128 pants and the other 135. I'm assuming the tops would be the same :D
You can never really take control of your life but you can control how you choose to live it.
