Applications to test the Piccadilly Pyjamas are now closed! But you can still sign up to be notified of future pattern testing opportunities on the form below. Thank you 🙂
I’m very excited to be in the final stages of preparing my first pattern release of 2018! Introducing the Piccadilly Pyjamas…
The Piccadilly Pyjamas are an oriental-inspired pyjama set. They are partly inspired by my childhood in Singapore but named after Piccadilly in London, a major road in the heart of the city that starts at Chinatown and is also home to the iconic Ritz Hotel.
The dartless top has a mandarin collar, sits open to the bust and then has a button-down front; it also features sweet little pockets. The top has two sleeve length variations – a slightly puffed cap sleeve and a three-quarter length sleeve. Both the hem of the blouse and the cuffs of the sleeves are finished with bias binding. The hem curves upwards at the side seams and the centre-front.
The bottoms come in two variations: a pair of shorts or a pair of loose-fitting cropped trousers. Each variation features a flat-front waistband with an elasticated back; the front waistband includes ribbon ties. The hem of the shorts and trousers curves upwards at the side seams, and is finished with bias binding.
This pattern will work best in soft, lightweight fabrics – e.g. cotton lawn, rayon/viscose, silk satin. It comes with thoroughly illustrated instructions. Testers will be sent a pdf with print-at-home and copyshop files.
The pattern will be sent out to testers on Tuesday 6th February and I need to receive all feedback by Tuesday 13th February. All testers who successfully complete the pattern testing will receive both pdf and print (when available) versions of the finished pattern, an additional print version for a giveaway should they wish, plus a 50% discount code to use on any other products from my shop – not to mention my everlasting gratitude!
If you’re interested in testing, please complete the form below. Previous pattern testing experience is by no means essential. I will select a range of testers and get back to you either way on Monday 5th Feb. If you are unable to test this pattern but would nevertheless like to be informed of future pattern testing opportunities please tick the box ‘Add me to your pattern tester mailing list’.
