Rosella Top

Regular price $16.50

Unit price per 


With a cleverly simple design, this pattern easy to sew and versatile to wear.  Mix and match mid-light weight wovens and knits to create a unique modern top for work or play.

Explore your creative side and contrast the front and back or go for a more consistent look. With  wide cotton/elastane knit sleeve & waist bands, this top is a bit different and versatile enough to be sewn in a knit or woven or a combination of both.  Sewing the sleeve and waist bands is easy, especially with the help of the online video tutorial. Use the stretch stitch (or zig-zag) on your sewing machine or an overlocker/serger if you have one.  

Great with a skirt, shorts or pant the Rosella Top can be dressed up or down.  

STYLE A - Long sleeve
STYLE B - Short sleeve
Pattern Hack - Lengthened hem without stretch waistband

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.

Most lightweight woven or knit fabrics will suit this top.
We recommend rayon/viscose, polyester chiffon, crepes, lightweight linen, cotton knits and cotton blends for summer.

Our long sleeve samples were sewn up in a range of rayons, polyester chiffons, cotton woven and knit blends. The white short sleeve sample is sewn in linen. All have 95% cotton 5% elastine or lycra stretch cuffs.

*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton,linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build up that may have occurred during printing anyway.

Garment length measurements given. To achieve a perfect, individual fit, you may need to adjust the patterns length (instructions included).

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here. 

3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.

You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes).

    Love it!

    The pattern was very easy to use, instructions are clear and I love my Rosella Top! I've already bought some fabric to make my next one :)

    Rosella Top

    Really good experience with this pattern. Straight forward easy to follow instructions and videos were really helpful, you can make a top in no time at all. Really pleased with mine and planning to make some more using other contrasting fabrics and colours

    Pattern Size and shape not ideal.

    I printed the pattern at home and found that matching up the pieces a bit of a faff. I am a standard size 14 and this top was far too wide in the neckline, especially at the shoulders where one’s bra strap would show. Also a bit more shape in the body would make it more appealing. I will have to take my top in because it is too big and blousy. I have cut a new square neck facing so I can wear the top and it will stay on my body and not show my bra straps. There is a Bernina Sewing Group in Nelson and when we last met another gal had had the same experience as me. She said a friend of hers had had problems with a skirt pattern. The general design is ok but I feel the pattern needs a bit of tweaking. Cheers Jane

    Great pattern

    Love this pattern. I've made 3 already. In scuba and jersey. It's great.

    Great pattern

    This is a fab, easy to sew top. The fit is good and I am so pleased that the waist band isn't tight, but sits perfectly on the hips. I'll definitely be making more!
