Rosa shirt and shirtdress sewing patten by Tilly and the Buttons

ROSA SHIRT + SHIRT DRESS

Regular price £14.50

SEW AN IMPRESSIVE BUTTON-DOWN!

Make your own stylish shirt or shirt dress with this step-by-step sewing pattern.

Rosa has a flattering semi-fitted shape thanks to gently curved princess seams on both front and back. Our favourite 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. (Want to make it long sleeved with cuffs? Download the free bonus pattern!) 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.

"Tilly designs the most lovely patterns ever. The designs are for everyday wear - and totally addictive. Thank you for designing clothes I can wear everyday." - Marika
