Tester Tuesday: Playground Pants for A Girl for All Time® Dolls

As a pattern designer for doll clothes patterns, I rely very heavily on the work of my tester group. These women fearlessly sew my “not quite ready for prime time” patterns and let me know how they work, how they fit, and if there need to be any tweaks. I’d be lost without them and really appreciate the time and effort they give me on each and every pattern.

Shirley has tested for me for a few years. Her creativity is unmatched and her beautiful photos show the attention to detail she puts into every single outfit.  Stop by and visit her Etsy Shop to see what she has for sale.  The Playground Pants pattern is designed for cotton fabric, but as you can see, it’s beautiful is soft knits as well.
