Last week we released Rosetta's Ruffle Neck Dress and Top and it has been a huge hit so far! Some of our fans thought it would also be really cute without the neck ruffle, to have a simple version and also to please kids with sensory issues. We knew that it would be a pretty easy alteration to make to the pattern, so we came up with this little tutorial for you!
The first thing you will need is the Rosetta's pattern from our website.
Cut out all pieces as explained in the pattern. Then on the bodice portion, you will cut 1.5" off the top:
Follow the next steps in the pattern until the piece looks like below. Then sew a gathering stitch along the top edge:
Pull the threads to gather the neck edge:
Encase the top edge of the bodice in the neck tie:
Sew in place:
And you're done!
That wasn't too bad, was it?! Here's a little video recap if you'd like:
We hope you enjoy making both versions of Rosetta's!
