This sweet and ﬂattering dress features a cut-out scoop neckline, an above-the-knee hemline, pockets, and shirring in the back for an easy, comfortable ﬁt. No zippers or closures are needed, making it a wonderful project for the intermediate sewist! The pattern can be made without sleeves, with a basic scoop neckline, as a tunic, or with a longer skirt to achieve a large number of different looks.
Light to medium-weight cotton or cotton-blend fabrics such as shirting, voile, double gauze, quilting cotton, poplin or cotton-linen blends
1 1/4 yard prepackaged single-fold bias tape (or cut your own 1 1/4" wide bias strips)
Rose is a high-waisted pants and shorts sewing pattern featuring slash pockets and a pleated or gathered front. The front waist is flat while the back waist is elasticized for comfort and style. Choose from three lengths: long, cropped, or shorts.
Yardage and Materials:
woven fabric (see yardage and size charts in the images for amounts)
3/4″ (19 mm)* wide elastic for the back waistband – depending on your size, you’ll need between 24-50″ [0.6-1.2m] in length, total.
1/4 yd (0.2 m) lightweight fusible interfacing**
* substitute 1.5″ (38 mm) wide elastic if you prefer a single channel of elastic; you’ll need half the total length as needed for 3/4″ / 19 mm wide elastic. I’ll post later this week about back waistband elastic options for more details on elastic widths.
** for interfacing less than 20” wide, sizes 1 and up will require ½ yd (0.4 m)
Light to medium weight woven fabric such as tencel twill, rayon challis, linen-rayon blends, silk noil, loose-weave cotton or linen blends, stretch twill, cotton sateen, or chambray.
In general: look for fabrics that have good drape and/or a looser weave; thicker “bottom weight” fabrics are not always recommended due to the elastic back waistband. While wovens with a small degree of stretch may work for this pattern, please note that Rose is not designed for knit fabric.
