I had my fabric for the Emery Dress samples picked out ages ago, and didn't reveal to the testers what my choices were, so when Lauren and Amy both picked a color really close to my View A color, I thought it was such a funny coincidence! The lovely Amy from Sewing Through the Motions set herself up for a double whammy of challenges though – sewing with a slippery fabric, and with a formal occasion deadline!
I'm happy though that her version fit so well that she was able to wear it to her intended fancy party, looking perfectly retro chic! Working with such slippery fabric is brave, especially for a pattern you haven't made up before, and I am proud of Amy's handling of it!
Amy has written up a post on her experience, so you should pop on over to her site and read all about it! Thanks so much for being a tester Amy!
