————– Here’s what some of our testers had to say ————–
“It’s a pattern which you will use again and again because it is so adaptable. You can make it into whatever you like; it will go wherever your imagination takes you. I like the fact you can make this pattern as complex and dramatic as you like, but even in its simplest form it’s a very pretty item of clothing. It was also a very quick sew which is perfect for when I have the inevitable last minute ‘Mum I need a costume for tomorrow’!” – Amy Myers, www.instagram.com/sew_many_adventures
“It is the solid bones of a great creative garment. I love the creativity it allowed. The wing dimensions were wide enough to allow for full “wings” but don’t overwhelm my child. The hood is loose enough that it is comfortable to pull on and off.” – Pam Allen, www.etsy.com/shop/oneplustutu
“This pattern has endless options, you are only limited by your imagination! The colouring pages give children a terrific sense of creation right from the start of the process. They can have as little or as much input into the design as they like.” – Carly Crocos, www.facebook.com/hellomonkeymoo
“It is very versatile, easy to follow, and offers a stunning finished product! It can be created in the most simple of ways or fancied up to the nines for a production…. it is an absolute must-have for creative minds!” – Lauren Sisk, avaryrosedesigns.bigcartel.com
“It seems like a lot of work but it comes together surprisingly quickly! And looks so fantastic in the end!” – Chloe Moffitt
“This is a great pattern to get with Halloween coming up. It’s a good pattern to exercise your creativity – whatever you can think of your child could be. My son couldn’t decide between a fox and a shark so we decided to go with both. This pattern is also easy to sew up if you’re into last minute costumes.” – Kyrsten Sanders
“Go for it! It’s easy and fun plus the kids will play with it all year! I like that it’s simple to put together, has so many possibilities, and comfortable for the child to wear and play with.” – Crystal McGraye
“The sky is the limit with the cape-tastic pattern! From owls and birds to dinosaurs and mice, this pattern can guide you to create fabulous dress up pieces for your kids. Use the pattern as is or go off track and make it your own. Let your kids help pick fabrics and colors. It’s a great grow with me piece. This is a truly fun pattern.” – Jennifer Lichak, inspiredbyamara.blogspot.com
