Original Post

Hey friends! Today I’m really excited to share with you the Rosa and Rosie patterns, my new favorite top patterns these days. Kate ofΒ  See Kate Sew has been releasing all sorts of fantastic new patterns over the last few weeks. I’m pleased to present my versions of her Rosa top for women and the matching Rosie top for little girlies! I’ll be sharing some details of the patterns, but if you’d rather skip my ramblings, there’s a giveaway at the end of the post!

The Rosa Top is a loose, flowy, knit peplum top with a high-low hemline. It’s got dolman sleeves (the easiest kind to sew!) and the option for long sleeves as well. The recommended fabrics are light to mid-weight knits. It doesn’t have to be super duper stretchy, because the fit is so relaxed, but you want it have a lovely drape. This vibrant floral is from Girl Charlee, and I wish I had bought more, because it’s divine, and perfect for the Rosa.

I love this top. The fit is easy and forgiving; you can throw it on with jeans or leggins and be comfortable but still look put together. It’s super cute for maternity as well, and it makes a fantastic nursing top because it’s roomy enough to pull up AND cover your baby. I’m always on the lookout for patterns that are as flexible and transitional as this one.

Kate has also designed the Rosie Top, which is the mini-me version of the Rosa and it is EVERYTHING, I tell you! I was lucky enough to test this pattern for her, and I loved it so much on my little flower that I made her three right away. It is the PERFECT little girls’ top. It comes in sizes 18 months-10 and it’s SOOOOO fast and easy to sew.

This girl is obsessed with flamingos, so I made her this one in this lovely cotton jersey flamingo knit. I added a couple inches in length to the peplum skirt, just because she’s a tall little lady. I also like her clothes to last as long as possible, especially the ones I make for her. (P.S. I promise I’m not picking my nose here. I just couldn’t NOT use this photo, because of how fab Nolie looks.)

Rosa and Rosie Tops

These little mommy-and-me versions are from a lightweight jersey knit also from Girl Charlee. It looks like this one isn’t available anymore, but there are lots of great prints that would be perfect for a Rosa or a Rosie. Or both, as it were.

Kate’s patterns are some of my very favorites to sew, and were among the first I ever made when I started out making clothes. I love Kate’s style and designs and her patterns are really well written, with clear and helpful illustrations. They come in PDF format and are really simple to print at home and tape together.

Both the Rosa and the Rosie patterns are really well drafted for great shape and a comfortable, flattering fit. I haven’t tried the long-sleeved version yet, because it’s starting to heat up fast here in Utah, but I’m sure that come fall I will be making a few! You can buy each one seperately (Rosa for women, Rosie for littles), or you can buy them together in the bundle and save.

Now for the GIVEAWAY!!!

Kate has generously offered to give one lucky reader a copy of BOTH the Rosa and the Rosie patterns, so you can sew a couple up for yourself! To enter to win, leave a comment on this post.
