My wonderful Olaf Testers!! Week 1 Testing.

This past week I had the priviledge of having a team of wonderful seamstresses make amazing Olafs with my new, soon-to-be-released pattern (on Saturday!!!)! They did an amazing job, and I can't wait to show off their versions and adorable children in them!!!! Let me just show off some of the amazing Olaf pictures that they sent me...

In order of size.....12months through 12 years

 Oh, my goodness!!  Could Olaf get any cuter with that face?!! Carol made her son the 12-18mo size Olaf (and small hat), and his little face says it all! You would never know it was pretty hot out that day, as he is just loving that costume! She said it was so comfortable and easy to get it on and off, even for an on-the-go kid! Such a delight to work with Carol! 

 Aww!!! I know, right?? So adorable!!! I just have the best testers with the cutest kids!! Rebecca from First Steps Boutique also made her son the 12-18mo size as well, and he is wearing it well!

Hollie from Kremer's Kustoms Etsy shop did a wonderful job on her daughter's 18-24mo sized Olaf! She said it was easy to get it on and off and her daughter enjoyed being in it. Hollie has been a joy to know and work with. She even made that beautiful Anna Coronation dress from my good friend, Marci's pattern. Love the two together from the movie!!
Leah started sewing a few years ago, and has such a natural talent for it! She has done such a professional job executing every pattern she makes. It's been a pleasure to have her join me through my Anna, Elsa Coronation and now Olaf! She made the 3/4 (and medium hat), and it was a good fit on both her daughter and son! She says it is very versatile costume, and she likes that it can grow with your child. 
Jane made a fantastic size 3/4 and medium hat for her cute little girl! I love that she's not only looking so cute, but dancing in it already! I love that a little girl can wear her hair up or down inside the hat and it still fit and be comfortable. She's wearing the outfit really well with a black long sleeved shirt and leggings...a perfect choice! 
Carol also made her older son the size 5/6 and medium hat. She made a wonderful example of what the body will look like without a lining, or being stuffed with fiberfill. Her son does not care to be too warm (neither do I!), so she used the choice to omit the stuffing and cotton lining. I love how the whole costume looks just as fabulous either way! What a great fit!! 
Samantha joined my sewing team on my Elsa Ice Leotard pattern this summer, and she is such a great new friend now! Not only is Samantha a great sewer, but she has two adorable girls and lives in Australia! Having her input and international perspective on the pattern has been so valuable in allowing this pattern to be understood by all across the globe. Sarah is wearing the 7/8 body and large hat....and definitely not minding the spring heat! 
I'm so glad Kimberly joined me in this testing round. I first met her when she blew me away with the cool iron-on Anna transfers she made with my digital stencils for her Anna dress back in February. She is quite the artist and sewer! She made the 7/8 size, large hat. Great fit and so true to the movie!!! Great sewing, Kimberly! 

You can see that the hat has an easy closure system at the bottom, either using velcro (in pattern directions) or a snap (just an idea instead). Your kids will be happy and warm all winter
 long in their Olaf hat! 


Lore from Five Blessings Boutique made the size 10/12 with large hat. As a new sewing friend on Facebook, I'm so thankful to have her sewing for me! She has some amazing clothing available for little kids and even takes custom orders! Check out her shop on Facebook!

...and I even have more to share with you!!! More awesome OLAF pictures to come! All my testers have blown me away with their OLAF costumes! I am so honored to have each of you on my sewing team! You are what allows me to have patterns that everyone loves.
And wow, do we put my patterns to the test!

ONLY 2 days left until the pattern release!!!! Are you excited?!!!!
