The #RoscoeDress has been on my list of things to make ever since I saw it for the first time last year.
As you may already know, I didn’t start sewing with patterns until recently. My makes were always self-drafted, so I have tons of catching up to do. With that said, I have decided to commit to making at least one new pattern a week. It obviously depends on my time, materials and if I have anything else going on in a particular week that I need to focus on.
The idea is to try and make a new pattern before repeating any. I need to catch up and get to a point where I have made all the patterns in my stash.
Am I crazy? Maybe. But I’m excited, and the experience so far has been quite rewarding.
When I got my hands on this Euro linen from Studio47 last year, I knew this would make the perfect #RoscoeDress. The colour of the dress is almost exactly the same as the one from the pattern pictures on the True bias website. I loved the way it was styled, so I just had to grab my nude wedges to recreate the look. The only thing I added was a skinny belt to cinch in my waist. Since the style of the dress is very relaxed, flowy and boho-chic, the belt helps to give my body some shape.
This was a relatively easy make that came together in an afternoon. I didn’t have to make any adjustments since the dress is quite loose-fitting. I’m definitely going to get a lot of wear out of this dress. Not only is it made in one of my favourite fabrics, it’s honestly secret pajamas. It’s the perfect piece to wear while at home during this lockdown while being comfortable and effortlessly chic!
