Women’s Farrah Tester Tour – Part One

The Women’s Farrah has been on sale since Monday and as of today you have a few more shopping options: you can purchase it in the Chalk and Notch shop HERE, in the Chalk and Notch ETSY store or on the UpCraft Club site. Just a reminder to buy your copy before the sale ends on Monday, April 17th!

If you are a member of the Chalk and Notch Facebook group, I have a special discount code available for all other Chalk and Notch patterns, come join us HERE for the coupon code. This code is not valid on the Farrah.

I’ve sewn up quite a few Farrahs over the past few weeks and I love all of the combinations that this pattern offers. I feel comfortable and put together while wearing the Farrah, which is always a great combo. I’m a sucker for prints but as I am reviewing photos, the solid options are really stunning too! I can’t wait to see what combinations you come up with. Make sure to tag @chalkandnotch #farrahpattern if you post. I’d love to see. The Chalk and Notch Team is also working on a fabric inspiration post that will follow soon too, so keep your eyes open for that!

I’ve been so lucky to work with amazing testers from around the world who work so hard to help me release high quality patterns that I am really proud of. Many of them have worked with me through most of my patterns and others are new to me. I love getting a chance to work and learn from them. Often sewing preferences can be personal and it’s so good to have so many perspectives to come up with the best way to present a pattern. This week many of those testers are reviewing their versions of their Farrahs and this is just part one. I’ll be back on Saturday for another post, plus a round up of all the tester photos next week!

I’m sure you are going to love their versions and get inspired, so please check them out!

Jill – Kneesocksandgoldilocks
USA
Jill has become such a sweet friend and everything she makes is stunning. I think it’s fair to say she is queen of Rifle Paper fabric creations and her Farrah in this Wonderland print is perfection!

Leslie – ThreadBear Garments
USA
Leslie is a member of Chalk and Notch Team and has the best style! I would wear any of her makes, they are always so cool. She’s been such a support for me and I am so thankful to have such a dear friend and team mate!

Nicole – Merritts Makes
USA
Every time I see Nicole’s makes, I’m like yes – I love that. Her style is so effortless and on trend. I love this Carolyn Friedlander print she choose for her Farrah. I’m so excited to get the chance to meet her soon!

Toya – Made by Toya
United Kingdom
Like all of my long time testers, I am just a fan of Toya. I love all of her makes and she is a super talented illustrator too. Make sure to check out her post with lots of great info about the Farrah.



Laurence – PoppySew
France
How cute is that 
marquee sign. I love this print and how Laurence styled it! For a review in French you can check out her post or head on over to see her pretty photos if you don’t read French.

Patti – Simple.Blessed
USA
Patti is stunning in her solid green Farrah.  It’s the perfect color on her! A first time Chalk and Notch tester and such a pleasure to work with! You should check out her blog for sure. I love her recent Hey June Trevi Top and Dress. That’s on my summer sew list too.


Heidi – Handmade Frenzy
USA
I adore Heidi and love getting the chance to work with her whenever I can! I’m loving her 
black and white classic dress. I’m pretty sure Heidi only wears handmade now and I hope to get to that point too. She always has a really cool relaxed style that I love. 

Jen – Teal & Finch
USA
This is not the first time I have collaborated with Jen but the first time she tested for Chalk and Notch and I loved having her. She made two lovely versions and I love how they both turned out. Make sure to check out her post for the pretty pink version!

Lara – Lara Handmade
USA
This is another one of my favorite Farrahs and I really just love these solid versions! Lara was an awesome tester and
I hope we can work together again soon. She has a great post up today with some really beautiful fabric recommendations, so make sure to check it out. Can we also talk about how cool that necklace is!

Maria – Fairies, Bubbles & Co.
Portugal
Maria is just the best, so kind and just a delight to work with.  Her sewing construction is impeccable
, seriously just perfection. I love the sweet detail that she added to the front yoke of her Farrah!

Lara – Handmade by Lara Liz
USA
This was my first time working with Lara and it was such a pleasure! She is so lovely to work with and her Farrah is so classic and put together. Check out her blog for so many great pattern posts.

I hope you have enjoyed these reviews and make sure to grab your copy while it’s on sale in the shop, HERE!
