I don’t know if it’s the same for you, but the weeks before holidays are always quite chaotic for me ! Emergencies at work to be handled in the absence of colleagues already on vacation, travel planning, preparing suitcases… and I have very little time left to sew ! but since I can’t do without it, I rather look for super fast patterns to make like Rosalie from Fibremood !
.: The pattern
Rosalie is a wide, unlined pattern with a V-neck and ruffled sleeves. The skirt attachment, below the bust, is slightly gathered.
.: The fabric
For the body I used a medium thickness cotton (200g/m2), cream color decorated with thin and elegant lurex stripes. It has good hold and opacity. This fabric was included in Joli Lab’s June kit but it can be purchased separately. For the sleeves I used a one-meter remnant of Japanese cotton that had been offered to me at the Paris Creation Salon held in October 2021.
.: The size
The available sizes range from XS to XXXL. I opted for size S but if you don’t like the cut too loose opt for a size smaller than your usual!
.: The modifications
Absolutely none !
.: The difficulties
Super simple, in a couple of hours the dress is ready! The fabric is super easy to sew, and you can wear it from the head without the need for either zippers or buttons. It is an ideal pattern for beginners.
.: The cost
As I said, the fabric was included in a monthly kit that I buy from time to time, but you can also find it by meters at a metre price of €9.95 EUR. I would say I needed less than two meters. For the sleeves, the fabric was free :-). I purchased the paper pattern at Veritas.
Let’s say that with less than 20 EUR I made myself a nice little dress !
.: Would I make it again?
Yes yes I would remake it in black sangallo lace !
🍎 See you soon ! 🍎
