The Rosetta PDF girls sewing pattern is a modern take on the bohemian flower girl dress. It's designed to be sewn in soft flowing lightweight fabrics. I love natural fibres, so a beautiful fluid silk would be my first choice. However, the Rosetta dress would work equally as well in a satiny viscose/rayon fabric as a more thrifty alternative. The Rosetta dress is an easy summer option for over swimmers or dolled up for a party with ballet slippers. I also love this dress in winter with a long sleeve merino top underneath, thick tights covering bare legs & finished with a cosy cardi.
