Sew Over It Rosie Dress

I made the Sew Over It Rosie dress over the weekend! This pattern has three views- a fitted bodice with wide straps and an optional collar, a slight sweetheart neckline with thin straps or a skirt. I made the first version with a contrasting white collar. The bodice has five panels and the skirt has a large pleat in the front surrounded by gathers. It’s so lovely! I also want to note that I opted out of the boning in the bodice. I remembered watching a video of Lisa Comfort and she said it wasn’t necessary.  I agree.

This dress sewed together wonderfully. I had no issues with pieces not fitting together or anything like that. I am so pleased with the construction of this dress and absolutely plan on making more.

Unfortunately I did not make a muslin and discovered too late that the bodice was huge! I was so disappointed. I ended up resetting the zipper in a bit and trimmed a little bit off a couple of the bodice panels. I couldn’t do much more because of the collar. I would have had to remove it and make it smaller to avoid it overlapping in the back. It’s still a little bit big at the top but it’s wearable now. I will definitely be altering the pattern next time.

The fabric is a beautiful lemon print cotton linen blend from Finch fabrics.

  1. Very cute! I know it’s a pain to do a mock-up muslin every time you purchase a new pattern, but usually it’s for the best! Otherwise, we regret it in the end! Either way, your dress turned out lovel!
