The dedication of the women who test sewing patterns for me is so incredibly heartwarming, it actually brings tears to my eyes. These are women whom I’ve never met in person, who commit to working under deadline and spending their precious time and fabric sewing up a pattern that, by its very nature, is imperfect. All so that I can offer you a highest quality patterns possible.
Yet again, my testers have proven to be amazing sewists of all different levels who have offered valuable feedback. Several of them have also now made multiple ANEGADAs! With their help, boat neck ANEGADA has become a pattern that I am hugely proud of and so excited to be offering to the sewing community.
I designed the original boat neck ANEGADA (view A) for my AW2015 capsule collection, back when I was making + selling handmade finished goods. There is something about the design that is so perfectly simple and basic, yet it has this unique touch. The unstructured, raw boat neck design and drape of the fabric give view A more of a cowl neck. View B has a cleaner boat neck with small box pleats at the center. Depending on your choice of fabric, this universally flattering single pattern can truly take you from the gym to the opera and is sure to become an absolute favorite in any capsule wardrobe.
Without further ado, please give a round of applause for the amazing testers!!!
