I need 3 sewers.

Attention lovely people.
I need 3 experienced sewers to do testing for me on my pattern, The Shelley.
I'm working on the grading now, but I want to get some people to sew a bare bones version of it to see how my grading is. You know the drill. Looking for people as CLOSE to my sizing chart as possible.
Need a 40-42 bust, a 50 bust and a 58-60 bust. Ill mail you a rough pattern and email the instructions. Would appreciate a simple mock up of the pattern in a week from getting it. Ill have oodles of questions!
If interested, please email me at contact(at)newvintagelady(dot)com and tell me what size range you want to try. First come first served.

Id totally appreciate the help.

The NVL pin is here!

Hi all. For those following along on my kickstarter adventure, I'm well underway. I post at least an update a week there, so if you want to stay in the know, that's the place to check first.

I just got the NVL pins from the manufacturer and they look great!

Here was the proof they sent and here is the final!


I have listed some extras in my etsy store if you all would love a cool lapel pin to show your support.
Alright, back to work!
