Sister Mintaka presents the Rosa sewing pattern by Tilly and the Buttons.
The shirt or dress has a flattering semi-fitted shape thanks to gently curved princess seams. The front yoke, pointed back yoke and forward shoulder seams look stunning highlighted with decorative top stitching or piped seams. It has a two-piece collar and stand, with a separate button stand facing so you can make a feature out of contrast fabric. Three-quarter length roll-up sleeves are held up with narrow buttons tabs. It is finished with mock felled seams, with a curved dipped hem and optional pointed pockets.
