Prefontaine Shorts: Testing phase

For Kid's Clothing Week, I did something a bit different. Instead of making clothes for my kids, I made a pattern for kids!

 Made with Moxie: Prefontaine Shorts Pattern tested by Buzzmills.

Last week I finished up grading my first pattern, the Prefontaine Shorts, and nervously sent it out with sewing instructions to a group of fabulous testers. I am pleased to say that for the tester's responses were favorable and most importantly the kiddos who got to wear them, love them. In fact, a few refused to take them off and others frolicked in delight. Most testers liked them so much they've made at least two pair!

While digitizing this pattern and getting it up for sale is on the top of my crafty list, I do have to finish up Anatomy and Physics, plus go on that pesky honeymoon, so the Prefontaine Shorts pattern will likely be released in June. But know I am hustling. I did not expect such an overwhelmingly positive response. I am quite excited. (You know there was dancing!)

A very special thanks to my testers! (in no particular order.)

**Some of you might be wondering how you get to be a pattern tester. I always post looking for pattern testers on my Facebook page. So if you'd like to be a future tester add my page to your newsfeed. I also regularly post pictures of what I am making (including future project sneak peeks) on my Instagram. Heck, I even post things I make that you can buy. For instance, yesterday I posted pics of a fat quarter bundle I hand stamped that was up for grabs. It is long gone now, but I often do things like that. **

Hope you all are resting a bit after a crazy Kid's Clothing Week!
