Buy the Rossetti Dress and Blouse sewing pattern from Selkie Patterns. The Rossetti will quickly become your new favourite dress and blouse pattern! It’s a satisfying make with no fastenings and different frill variations to make it your own. It features a flattering V-shaped neckline with a relaxed fit bodice, gathered yoke details on the back and front and a full, bias-cut skirt. With an elasticated waist, the Rossetti gives you the balance of a casual feel with a dressed up look. The waistline is just above your natural waist on the front and dips down at the back. This stylish pattern comes with three variations: a midi length dress, a maxi dress (fabric permitting) and a blouse. There are options for a deep hem ruffle, neckline frill, frills above the bust and a waist frill. You’ll learn how to make an easy side seam split, too!

Suggested fabrics: Light- to medium-weight fabrics with plenty of drape and movement such as viscose (rayon), tencel (lyocell) or crêpe. The drape will ensure the garment’s bodice hangs correctly.

Fabric requirements: You will need 150 cm wide fabric to fit the width of the maxi dress pattern. (Note: The maxi dress in size 26 requires a fabric width of 151.5 cm.) The midi dress would fit on 115 cm wide fabric, but it is still recommended that you choose a fabric that is around 150 cm wide; a 115 cm width complicates the layout and causes a lot of waste. The requirements include all the frills.

150 cm wide fabric: Sizes 6 – 16: 2 m for the blouse / 4 m for the midi dress / 5 m for the maxi dress // Sizes 18 – 26: 2.2 m for the blouse / 4.4 m for the midi dress / 5.4 m for the maxi dress.

Sizing: UK 6 – 26. Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.

Notions: Matching thread; 1 cm wide elastic the length of your waist measurement.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; A4/US letter print-at-home pattern; A0 copy shop file.
