*UPDATE: TESTER CALL CLOSED* Thank you so much for your interest!

I would love your help testing my next release, the Women’s Waterfall Raglan! I released the girls Waterfall Raglan in November and I had requests for the women’s version. So here it is – the first women’s release for Chalk and Notch! I really love this pattern so I was happy to know some of you did too.

The Waterfall Raglan has two views: Top and Dress. The body of the garment has a relaxed fit with a gathered ruffle hem. The sleeve has a slim fit so the garment doesn’t feel too overwhelming. There are short, 3/4 and long sleeve lengths and an optional pocket for both views. If you think you’re interested, please review the test dates and apply below.



I run my tests with two phases, I’ll explain a little since this might be different from other tests you have worked on. The test is held in a private Facebook group. Everyone joins the Facebook group at the same time. PHASE 1 testers start first and submit their fit photos and complete a survey. I make all necessary updates and then upload a new pattern for PHASE 2 testers.

PHASE 1 – Monday, December 12th thru Friday, December 16th
PHASE 2 – Sunday,  December 18th thru Thursday,  December 22nd
Please review the dates and confirm they are workable before applying.

To test the pattern, I ask that you are able to sew the pattern following the tutorial, complete the survey and submit fit photos on a model by Friday, December 16th (for PHASE 1) OR Thursday,  December 22nd (for PHASE 2). Only one sample is required for each tester. I require modeled fit photos only, styled photos are welcomed but not required. In return you will receive the final pattern for free and hopefully a new top or dress to wear during the holidays!

Recommended fabrics: This style is designed for a medium to lightweight knit fabric with a nice drape. Most of my samples have been made in Rayon Jersey. Other fabric recommendations: Cotton Jersey, Cotton Lycra or Spandex blends and Rayon French Terry.

Yardage requirements: The maximum yardage required for the Top is: 2 yds of 60″ wide fabric (for size 18 Top w/long sleeves).
The maximum yardage required for the Dress is: 3 1/2 yds of 60″ wide fabric (for size 18 Dress w/long sleeves).

Size Range: 0 thru 18

I know that you will be committing to time away from your family or other priorities which is even more precious during the holidays. I really appreciate your time and effort if you are able to test. I will email all who apply by Sunday, December 11th.

Thanks for checking out this tester call!

    Love your fabric choice, I wear slim fit clothes as they fit me so well, Plus buying a size lower then my usual actually makes me look more muscular.
