I’m Bringing Sexy Back!


I recently volunteered to test a new sewing pattern, the Sandpoint Top, created by Seattle-based independent designer Helena at Gray All Day. The Sandpoint Top is a simple top with just two main pieces, plus the finishing bands. It has a round or v-neck in front, and a cowl neck in the back. It can also be worn with the cowl neck in the front!

Testers sew up a certain view and size, and then send written feedback, and pictures to the designer. Thoroughly testing the design using different skill levels and body shapes, is a valuable component in developing a great pattern. Helena has a lot of potential, and has a wonderful and friendly attitude toward the whole testing process. She even set up a facebook group so that all the testers could meet, discuss, and share the process.

It was a quick and easy sewing project that I enjoyed sewing up using my serger and my coverstitch machine. This will be a great pattern for beginners as well as for seasoned sewers. I can’t wait to see the final product and her future designs.

And yes, I like the sexy back!
