When a new pattern appears, some people jump on it right away, and some wait to see other bloggers make it. For me it definitely helps to see a pattern on different bodies and in various fabrics. Sometimes I’m put off by the samples a designer has made, but then am completely convinced when it’s made up by a blogger I follow. So for the Onyx release I asked for reviewers, and the people below volunteered to write something in exchange for a free pattern. I have definitely gotten some ideas myself after seeing these!
