It’s the best time of year! The midyear Scroop Patterns Sale! All downloadable PDF Scroop Patterns are 20% off this week! The discount is applied automatically at checkout: no need to do anything. The sale ends Tuesday 21 June, 11:59pm, NZ Time Happy shopping, happy sewing! I usually do a sale this time of year, but this time there’s an added incentive. My car needs replacing, and cars are expensive in post-covid NZ 😢 Also car shopping is the worst. I’d rather be doing even my least favourite part of patternmaking (figuring out fabric requirements.

Lots of you enjoyed my Selina Blouse with added jabot tie. It’s a fun variation to the basic pattern and really plays with the possibilities of the waistcoat-effect front of View A. Here’s a quick tutorial on how to add your own!
