Hey Hey Hey! I am finally testing a new pattern after over a year. Woohoo! And what better time to get people to test than to test when we are all stuck at home. Keep reading to learn a little more about the pattern and to see if you would like to submit an application.
Testing will take place Monday, April 13th-April 24th . I will email all patterns and instructions that morning by 10 am Mountain Standard time.
The Supermarket Slacks are a comfortable pair of paper bag waist pants with an elastic waist and a wider leg. The skirt is a combination between an A-line and a pencil skirt, featuring the same waist band. Both can be dressed up or down, for all your wardrobe needs. The pattern does have about 6 inches of ease so when looking at the hip measurement, know that you have some wiggle room, depending on how snug you want them to fit. To give you an idea, I wear size large, and my hip measurement is a 41, and I have pretty meaty legs.
