My amazing testers let me drag them through a super fast testing process for the Krissa Crop and were such great sports about it! For that reason, not everyone got to whip up & photograph fully finished versions of their tops. I do have a few rock star testers here that were able to do so and I cant wait to show you what they’ve made!
My dear friend Amy is a busy school teacher who decided to use her summer break to do a #100daysofsewing challenge. I reached out and asked her if she’d like to test my pattern as part of her challenge and she said yes!!! I love the sweet little print that she used, AND it was an old bed sheet! – A woman after my own recycled fabrics heart!
I just love the fun floral print that Elena used to make her Krissa Crop. Elena has tested for me before and her makes are always wonderful! I love how she paired hers with what looks like a swim top or fun matching bra top for a sneaky little matching strap.
I feel like Louise and I might have the same life full of random sewing freelance work and I wish we lived closer so we could meet up for drinks and vent about all the frustrating things that come with this amazing job! I cant get over how much I love this print that she used to sew her Krissa Crop. Its so chic and summery!
Jackie never disappoints when she tests for me and the Krissa Crop is no exception. How adorable is this bumble bee fabric she used!? And look how clean and nice the insides are! I’m a huge fan of using contrast bias in my garments (partially out of laziness, partially cause its fun!). I think it really highlights how nice the clean finish looks on the inside.
Jennifer always takes the funnest photos when she tests for me. I love that she tried out the Krissa in a rayon! It really shows you how versatile this pattern can be if you want a more drape-y fit. And of course I have to shout out her adorable Arrow Mountain buttons!
***I want to add a quick note that many of these Krissa’s were made before the pattern underwent some final changes. Namely the back opening got a little more coverage and the side seams got more relaxed to prevent pulling the back open. Keep in mind that if you are over a C cup you may want to do a full bust adjustment to prevent the top from pulling open in the back and exposing too much of your bra strap. The top is drafted to just cover the bra strap. Jennifer’s top was made with the most current (and final) version of this pattern.
As usual I cant thank my amazing testers enough for the work they do to get my patterns out of my head and into your hands. I seriously would not have a business without them!
I want to give a shout out to the testers who weren’t able to take blog pics but never-the-less did an amazing job and were essential in helping me get this pattern off the ground: Abigail, Ana, Mary, and Dana.
