Rosa Shirt + Shirtdress Pattern
Make your own stylish shirt or shirt dress with the Rosa sewing pattern from Tilly and the Buttons.
Rosa has a flattering semi-fitted shape thanks to gently curved princess seams on both front and back. Our favorite feature is the pointed back yoke, which looks stunning highlighted with decorative topstitching or piping.
You'll learn to construct a two-piece collar and stand, with a separate button stand facing so you can make a feature out of contrast fabric. The three-quarter length roll-up sleeves are held up with narrow button tabs. It's finished with mock felled seams, a gently curved dipped hem, and optional pointed pockets.
Wear your Rosa dress for work or play, and let the compliments come flooding in..."You made that yourself?!"
Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Rosa includes easy-to-follow instructions with photos showing you how to sew each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
