I have a hard time finding pants that fit me well.  I decided to try to make some based on some pants I already had and try adjusting them.
They aren’t perfect, but I have to say they aren’t bad for a first try!  The good news is they are wearable.  I used a nice stretchy [...]

The second pattern I tested for The Cottage Mama was the Miss Matilda Dress and Top.
I did a re-test of the larger sizes and I think Lindsay nailed it.  It’s a simple dress, but the ruffle at the neck and down the front adds the perfect little touch.

Then I also tested the Rosalie [...]

I also had the opportunity to test out the Nelia Top and Dress by Popolok Designs.  My daughter absolutely loves this dress.  She thinks the snaps up the front are awesome.
