Mathilde Tester Round Up

The Mathilde is the last pattern I planned on releasing (or re-releasing) until at least the fall. I have so many other things happening BTS that need my attention that it just makes sense to put a pause on any more new pattern releases for the year.

That being said, I am SO HAPPY that the Mathilde is the pattern right before I take a  mini break! It definitely holds a special place in my heart and I am so so excited to have had such an incredible round of testers for this dress. Honestly, every single version came out so well that I may be seriously contemplating having a wardrobe filled with #UTMathilde , especially of the LBD variety :D
