I heart Pattern Testing: Apple + Fig Street Kred Cap

I was lucky enough to be selected by Jenna, from Apple + Fig, to test her newest pattern the Street Kred Cap. I was in the midst of finishing my post for the Project $0 2013 contribution and decided that I would make one up from the left over bits of fabric from the pants/shirt. 

This is a seriously cool pattern. It comes in sizes XXS - XXL so it fits babies up to adults. I chose the size I made based on the measurement chart, which was also the right size age wise (I love when that happens!!). The pattern instructions and pieces are beautifully presented and very professional. It was quite straight forward to sew up. I love the attention to detail and the finished cap is very trendy and wearable. There is room to pop in a bit of personality too which is fun. I was up-cycling so I added in a panel that had a part of the pocket and waist band of the pants on it.

I used red thread throughout. I lOVE the topstitching over the top!

A true tester for any hat/cap/head wear is my little miss Eloise. To put it bluntly she is NOT a fan of having things on her head. At. All. That said, she wore this willingly for quite some time as I chased her around trying to snap some photos. I think in part that is because it fits so well, it has a padded sweat band and elastic in the back. The boys are lining up for me to make them one too and I think even my hubby would like his very own.

This pattern is fantastic and I would recommend it to beginner and advanced sewists alike. It will be released soon from Apple + Fig. I should add that I was not asked to review this pattern, I was given a free copy of the pattern as a pattern tester. My feedback is my honest opinion :) 

Are you eager to buy this one when it is released?  Now? The Pattern has been released! You can buy your copy here :)

Let me know what you think.
