Yay! It’s here! It’s done!
I’m extremely pleased to announce the latest Scroop Pattern: the Wonder Unders:
Making my own undergarments is a little thing, but it’s something that makes me happy every day, as I get to put on a slip, singlet camisole, or knickers that fit me exactly, are made out of fabric that I love, and that work perfectly under my other clothes. Undergarments aren’t as exciting as fancy frocks, but they are every bit as satisfying over time.
Just like the Miramar Top, Dress & Tunic pattern, the Wonder Unders feature easy, anyone-can-do-it knit sewing. They do require a sewing machine that does a zig-zag stitch, but nothing fancier than that!
The Wonder Unders pattern features classic three-piece Knickers with full bottom-coverage and sit approximately 10cm / 4” below the navel.
The Singlet Camisole and Dress Slip feature scoop necks and straight backs.
The Singlet Camisole fits snugly through the bust, and loosens slightly over the waist and hips, finishing at mid hip.
The Dress Slip has a slightly A-line skirt with two length options: mid thigh (blue), or just above the knee (pink).
And there’s more! The Wonder Unders Singlet Camisole & Slip are designed to sit perfectly under the Miramar Dress, Top & Tunic, for a bit of neckline filler, and under the Henrietta Maria Dress & Top, if it is made in sheer fabrics.
All three items can be finished with pre-folded or foldable lingerie elastic, or picot lingerie elastic.
Think you can’t get either of those? Don’t worry, my next post is going to feature sources for both, no matter where you are in the world!
