In this post I'm showing you all the Bing Shirtigan's I've sewn for my son Bing. I personally love seeing my son Bing in something slightly more “dressed up”, like a button-down shirt.  So I set out to design something super comfortable with some classic button-down elements. Say, cardigan meets shirt. Light bulb moment, the Bing Shirtigan was “born”!

Doris skirt - full seat adjustment

Doris skirt - full seat adjustment

May 16, 2019 1 Comment

Who knew women have curves? Okay, you can laugh, because that’s like super obvious! Most of us women fall in different pattern sizes for our waist and hips, which means you have to blend between sizes to ensure a great fit. 

In most cases when testing the Doris adult skirt, even the testers with more challenging curves, got away with a perfect fitting skirt by following the detailed step-by-step blending instructions. But others ended up with some annoying, but very common fitting issues. In this blogpost we're going to discuss some of these very common fitting issues and it's solution: the full seat adjustment.

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.
