It’s all been a bit quiet here at PatternLab over the past couple of months, but don’t worry things have been ticking away behind the scenes. We’ve been working incredibly hard to make use of all your suggestions.
Anyway… We launched back in Feb 2017 with a selection of products that we wanted you guys to test and then give us your feedback. Guess what, you did… in fact, hundreds of you gave us feedback! It was a truly rewarding experience and helped us move into a new stage of development and we couldn’t have done it without you. Finally, after months of tweaking, experimenting and working through your ideas, we’ve updated our product and added a few new ones.
We actually received an email from Samuel E (you know who you are!). He was actually our first ever customer. He thought we’d given up and sent us a really lovely email spurring us on and offering his support (he’s now part of our testing team). Thank you, Sam, you are wonderful! It’s always inspiring to hear from people so excited by the lab.
Before we launch all our hard work, we need to do a final round of testing, just to ensure that we are giving you the best possible product, which is why we are now looking for a small set of enthusiastic testers to confirm we’ve got it right.
What does it involve?
If you would like first access to our new products (before anyone else) and help test them, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll then send you your testing pack and instructions on how to take part. Fill out the new measurement chart with your up-to-date measurements, add your various pattern preference and send it back to us pronto. We’ll then send you your patterns ready for testing.
All we need from you is some notes on the fit of your basic block and a set of clear images taken from the front, back and side, to show us the fit of your basic block.
When all the testing is over and we’ve relaunched the new improved Lab, we’ll give you free access to all of our blocks and tutorials including new ones for free for three months!
Are you the right fit?
We normally get a lot of people interested in testing which is great! However, we are looking for a specific set of testers, with the right measurements. It’s great getting 50 people to sign up but if they are all a size 14 with a D cup then we’re not actually testing the full range of our new improvements.
Ideally, we are looking for a broad range of women all with unique measurements. So, if you fit into the below size ranges, then please get in touch. Once we have a better idea about how many women and what size ranges we have testers for, we can then put a final call out for the missing sizes.
So what does this actually mean? A woman that’s a UK6 with a C-cup would count as one test in the UK6 group. A woman that’s a UK6 with a B-cup would be another test in the UK6 group. We would need an A, B, C, D and DD in the UK6 group to complete testing within that group.
Test group 1 – UK4 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 2 – UK6 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 3 – UK8 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 4 – UK10 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 5 – UK12 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 6 – UK14 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 7 – UK16 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 8 – UK18 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 9 – UK20 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
Test group 10 – UK22 – A, B, C, D, DD cup
