The results of my pattern-testing for Megan Nielsen!

A while back, the very talented Megan Nielsen asked me if I'd be up to test out one of her new patterns, for the Kelly Skirt. Of course I was!

Megan sent me the beautiful pattern (cover and layout designed by Melissa of I Still Love You) and I put it to the test. The little instruction booklet and nice quality paper pattern were great! And the Kelly Skirt is a cute and simple look that went together really easily.

Here's what I made!

The Kelly Skirt pattern is now available for sale at Megan's shop, along with several other amazing and cute clothing patterns. Something about patterns designed by a stylish, trendy blogger for stylish, trendy folks like us make her patterns some of THE cutest around!

Thanks for the opportunity to try them, Megan!
