I’m so excited to introduce the newest Scroop Pattern: the Ettie Petticoat!
Reasons I love this pattern:
First, ruffles! And insertion lace! So pretty and delicate and delicious!
The pattern includes detailed instructions on three different historically accurate ways to insert lace, both by hand and machine. And detailed instructions on every other part of the construction – of course!
Did I mention machine sewing? Yep, the whole thing can be machine sewn (while still being totally historically accurate), or you can splash out and hand-sew to your hearts content.
You can make it as a historical petticoat, or make it as a modern skirt, it’s fabulous as both.
Here’s View D as a modern skirt:
And as a historical petticoat:
Not only does the pattern fit perfectly into historical and modern wardrobes, with four views that take it from 1890 to 1920 it’s the ultimate late-Victorian-Edwardian petticoat package.
The additional historical information in the pattern covers the extant petticoats and original patterns that each view is based on, and discusses how petticoat shapes and construction changed over that 30 year period.
Other reasons to love it?
It’s comfy. Views A & B have drawstring waists, and Views C & D have elastic, so it’s really adjustable and adaptable.
Tons of additional historical information. There are ads, photos of extant garments, fabric suggestions, and more.
(is there an Ettie under these – yes there is!)
