This was my sewing weekender 2020 project, and I’ve finally taken pictures of it! The top can be made by using the Rosalee Dress pattern and adapt it using the Free Rosalee Top Hack pattern pieces and instructions. The instructions give directions for both jersey and woven. Unlike the jersey option, the woven option still needs a zip and all of the waistband pieces.
Scrapbusting! Quite often you’ll have a bit of leftover fabric from a project or a remnant you bought that you’re not quite sure what to do with and this is an excellent way to make something a bit special with it! You can actually get away with using less of your main fabric by using a contrast/alternative fabric for the facings. Use the table below as a fabric guide.
Using 140cm wide fabric:
Bodice fabric : Ava – Cara = 90cm (35.4″) // Dee – Gia 95cm (37.4″)
Facings: Ava – Cara = 45cm (17.7″) // Dee – Gia 50cm (19.7″)
I’m 5’7″ and this is a really nice length to wear with a skirt or high waisted jeans. You can shorten or lengthen it very easily by just extending either the bodice or skirt pieces, depending on where you want the length adjusted.
Are you going to make a Rosalee top? Woven or jersey? Make sure you share pictures of it once you’re done, I’d love to see it! #xsRosalee
