I very much enjoyed testing the Rosie Dress pattern from Sew Over It. It’s a cracker of a design that has been really well thought through, with a full gathered skirt and lightly boned bodice. I particualr like the skinny straps, shape of the neckline and the fact that there is no gathering at the centre front. The fabric for my test was provided by Sew Over It and I chose this tropical print cotton which I loved for the subdued colours. I was unsure about it at first as it is slightly coated and quite stiff but it actually turned out perfectly as the taffeta like feel empahsises the shape of the skirt.
