Scroop Patterns – Call for Testers!

UPDATE: Testing applications are now CLOSED.  Thank you all for your interest! I’ve got a new Scroop Pattern ready to be tested! The Pattern: Wide legged trousers or culottes inspired by my 1930s Deco Mermaid Beach Pyjama trousers – but with updates for modern construction and fit.  They have front pleats, a pointed yoke, a loose, comfortable, dropped crotch seam, and a centre back invisible zip.  And pockets! Make them in linen, cotton, or rayon for summer, or wool for winter.  In dressy silks and satins they are glamorous enough for formal wear.   The pattern comes in the full Scroop Patterns size range, from size 30-52 Sizes 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 Body Measurements in Inches Bust 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 Waist 24 26 28 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 Hips 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 Body Measurements in Centimeters Bust 76.5 81 86 91.5 96.5 101.5 106.5 …
