Scroop Patterns

Meet the Scroop Te Aro Dress & Top!

Te Aro Dress & Top

This fabulous knits pattern is my homage to downtown Wellington: a pattern with options for everyone you meet among the cafes, universities, museums, and businesses of the Te Aro District.

Te Aro Dress & Top

It features dropped shoulders, a cocoon shape, and mix-and-match neckline, sleeve, and hem options for a whole wardrobe of looks in one pattern.  

With so many options the pattern goes from fashion-student street-cool, to weekend waterfront brunch casual, to art-curator elegant at the national museum.

View A

This casual dress version features long sleeves finished with cuff bands, a matching hem band, nice big side pockets with curved pocket opening, and an oversized hood. It’s designed to end just above the knee.

View B

Is a knit top with finishing details that elevate it above a standard T-Shirt. It has a curved hem with side slits and a dropped back hem, both faced in lightweight knit fabric, short sleeves finished with bands, and a scooped neck.

View C 

The dressiest version of the Te Aro features extravagant gathered sleeves in lightweight woven fabrics, a drop hem faced with knit fabric, the same pockets as View A, and a shallow scooped neck. The dropped hem is designed to sit just above the knee in front, and just below the knee in back.

Or Mix and Match…

Here’s a View B with View A sleeves & View C neckline:

And all the options are so comfortable and cozy they are basically stealth pyjamas!

  1. Marvelous! Congratulations on another pattern! I love the sort-of tinker-toy ethos so that a sewer can mix and match details according to personal taste.
