I just bought the Fantail pattern and may I say I LOVE you for also including metric measurements! That makes fabric shopping and size selection so much easier. Finished garment measurements are also such a helpful information. I’m seriously impressed and can’t wait to sew it up! Hopefully I’ll find nice fabric for the modern version at Sunday’s fabric market. 🙂
Metric measurements are the best aren’t they! I grew up with imperial, but once I discovered metric for fabric lengths I never looked back!
I’m so glad you appreciate them, and the finished garment measurements. My goal with Scroop was to include all the things I like having in a pattern!
Hope you find some fabulous fabric!
Yay! I just bought Wonder Unders, and posted about it on IG… and realised you aren’t on there! I wonder if it would be worth having a business account there, and hashtags for your patterns? It’s how a lot of people connect about sewing and patterns!
Thank you for the purchase, and the posting!
No, I’m not on IG, because I don’t have a smartphone, and IG doesn’t allow you to participate without one. 🙁
I’ve chosen not to have a smartphone in order to create some line between my personal life and work, but it does have drawbacks. It’s really frustrating that IG has that rule.
colettepatterns.cominstagram.comIG’s insistence on being only smartphone based is annoying.
Gillian’s suggestion to set hashtags for your patterns is still a good one though! You can do that without having an Instagram of your own. A good example is on the page for Collette Patterns – if you scroll down to the end of their Sorbetto top pattern, then you can see they have a little note/link that says “See photos tagged #corbettesorbetto on Instagram”.
https://www.colettepatterns.com/catalog/sorbetto (the pattern page)
https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/colettesorbetto/ (link to the hashtag on Instagram)
So, for your Scroop patterns, you could just add a note to the page that says “Tag your patterns on Instagram with #scroopwonderunders” (or something along those lines) and then people who make it can tag with a consistent tag, and people who are thinking about making it can see other examples for inspiration.
I have only just started sewing garments (indeed, I have only just started sewing!) but it was very helpful when I was choosing my fabric. (I am now halfway through sewing my first top. It’s very exciting.) I’m keen to try out some of your patterns too – the Miramar dress is lovely although I am not sure that I am ready for knits just yet!
scrooppatterns.comThank you! I definitely need to start including hashtags for my patterns!
The Miramar dress is a super-easy pattern, and a great introduction to sewing with knits! It’s usually the second class that my sewing students take after Absolute Beginners (where they make a drawstring bag, cushion cover with zip, and pyjama pants), and every single one of them has successfully made a Miramar.
The pattern gives pretty comprehensive instructions for sewing knits, and there are also three useful posts linked at the bottom of the pattern page 😀
Well, I am sold. I’ve bought the pattern and will give it a go. 🙂
Thank you very much! I just printed out a historical fantail.
You’re welcome! Happy sewing! I’d love it if you sent me a photo when you were done!
Are the pattern in any fabric stores in Baltimore Maryland?
Hi Mary, Unfortunately no. The patterns are only available as digital downloads online.
