Meet the Pegu Pattern Testers

Posted by Betsy C on

For a lot of sewists, a pair of pants can be a bit panic inducing.

"Will they fit?"

"If they don't fit, how do I fix them?"

"OMG, I fixed them now I have other issues. This is impossible!"

But then you have the brave Pegu Pant Testers willing to give it a go. Running head first into the world of pants fitting. Yes, these ladies have been an amazing team and a great help to fine tune the Pegu Pants. Below is a sampling of the wonderful testers that helped out. As we all know there are never enough hours in the day, so there are still some tester photos pending. Be sure to check back. 

The critical part of the testing process of the Pegu Pants was to recognize consistent fit issue or areas of improvement on a range of bodies and different fabrications. For the sake of full disclosure, most of the testers felt that the fit around the crotch area could use more width. The final pattern reflects this, but the tester photos may not, unless they adjusted.

Without further ado, meet the testers!

  • I see in all most all of you pics that the pants are too short in the back rise – they are dividing most of your testers lower buttocks. This is not a case of needing extra fork width, nor scooping out the back lower curve of the crotch – you need extra depth in the rise of the pants. This is a common problem with most pants patterns that I see.

  • @Julie,
    Yes, I would like to share their photos as well. However, the testers in this range have not provided me with any to share and I am hopeful that some will eventually.

  • Would like to see pics of the 3x and 4x pattern testers too. Pattern sizes don’t stop at 2x, but the photos do….

  • Hi, these are all lovely! Do you think you could also put fabric type details on each tester’s information so we can predict more accurately how our fabrics will look sewn up? Thank you!
