I had a fantastic group of testers for the Scroop Rilla Corset, and they all made amazing corsets.
With every Scroop Patterns I select testers from all over the world, to make sure that the instructions are universally clear and comprehensive, but I always try to have at least one local tester, so I can see their resulting garment in person.
With the Rilla that was particularly fun, as Madame O was one of my local testers, and she embellished her test corset with herÂ fabulous embroidery (remember the embroidered buttons she made for this wedding dress?). Â And she’s let me photograph and share it!
This is a test version of the Rilla Pattern, so doesn’t look exactly like the finished pattern does (the main differences are the shape of the front cut out), and Madame O tried single boning construction to see how it would work (answer: not nearly as well as double, so stick to the pattern!).
