TL; DR – I feel pretty, oh so pretty! And, the best tester community experience, ever.
The Madison blouse is another pattern I was invited to test by a new indie pattern company, Foxy Patterns. I got this dainty vintage floral print on my local buy-nothing group, and I thought it would be perfect for this feminine blouse pattern.
The pattern was a lot of fun to put together, the instructions were amazing, but shout-out to the group of testers on Slack who made this a truly, truly social sew. It was the most social I have ever experienced when it comes to a pattern testing group. There didn’t seem, to me, to be anything special or different about the set-up compared to other Slack groups I’ve been a part of for testing, but for whatever reason, this one just sang.
The sleeves on mine were still a little too wide at the bottom, which was fixed before release, but other than that, it was a straightforward make and I ended up with a lovely blouse made out of vintage cotton!
