Doris skirt tester round up

May 06, 2019

Transformative. That is the word that best describes the Doris skirt for adults pattern test. With the help of 43 amazing testers, among which 8 pregnant ladies - we’ve perfected,  adjusted, transformed the Doris skirt pattern to become a versatile, year- round wardrobe staple and must have pattern! Obviously that’s always the goal of a pattern test. But unexpectedly this test also was transformative for (my own personal) body positivity.

We all come in beautiful shapes and sizes. And whether we’re tall, short, skinny or curvy - we all have our own personal issues with our bodies. Even though they might seem silly to others! Our little temporary Doris skirt testing community consisted of a warm and positive group of amazing women.  With a body hugging skirt like Doris a lot of emphasis is put on one’s shape and we all got to share our uncertainties openly and without fear of being judged.

In testing the Doris, many stepped out of their comfort zones. Boundaries were pushed. Confidence got a boost. We all walked away happily with some cool Doris skirts. But most importantly, we walked away feeling GOOD IN our Doris skirts & feeling a little better about ourselves in general. Well, at least that’s how I feel!

So a BIG THANK YOU goes out to all these rockstar women - it was a pleasure and an honour! Here’s a small selection of their amazing makes. Please check their social media & blogs and show them some much deserved love! Below you will also find a list of all the blog posts kindly written by some of the testers, with more in depth info about the testing experience and some honest opinions!
