Rosella Top

Regular price $18.50

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).

    Great fun top

    Great pattern to sew, and lovely to wear. I made it twice using a woven rayon fabric and ribbing for cuffs.

    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!

    Dressy but casual

    The pattern was so easy to print and cut out. It was the first time for me using ribbing so it was a learning curve, but as the rest of the pattern is so simple that was fine. The customer service help was excellent when I asked a question. It's a really nice touch. There are endless possibilities with this top and I'm looking forward to trying them!

    Great top

    Easy to make. The Rosella top is my favourite as you can use lovely drapey fabrics, which I like with the almost batwing sleeves. Such a simple pattern, great for a beginner sewer also.

    Rosella Top

    I really enjoyed making this top. It was extremely easy to make and looks lovely on. Can’t wait to have the time to make another one on a wet Sunday afternoon, just need to find the appropriate fabric and colour for me. Will buy more patterns in the future.

    Easy to sew pattern

    Just made a fit-muslin - works great, but I'll be making longer, tapered sleeve cuffs on the next one to get the look I'm trying to accomplish - easy change, but the pattern went together well, and pieces fit accurately. It looks just like the pictures and the line drawing. It's a great basic, for a jumping-off point for variations.

    The Rosella Top - a great sew

    As a reasonably novice sewer, I found the pattern download and instructions really easy to follow, and made the top up in no time (in a viscose stretch jersey). The pattern was easy to tweak (I shortened the sleeves a bit and narrowed the hem band) and the result was excellent, a lovely loose but modern fit. Am currently making it again in another material and will try the short-sleeve version as well. Such a cool top - thanks!

    Great pattern, very easy for a beginner sewer. Can see me making this pattern many times.

    Rosella Top

    Very disappointed in this pattern. Even the smallest size is far too big for me. Was so looking forward to being about to wear this style and bonus that the pattern could be made with a woven and a knit.


    The Sewing Revival

    Hi Bronwyn, I am so sorry to hear that. Please email me (contact form on the website) with your bust and waist measures and your normal RTW size and I will ensure we get this sorted for you. I'm also interested in more specific feedback to see what has gone wrong for you. Kind regards, Janine

    What else?

    I very much like the layered PDF patterns (easier to adjust if needed); the good range of sizes (I'm not so small anymore); the very detailed instructions (perfect to refresh my long unused sewing skills); the very effective simplicity of the designs; the big smiles of the charming models... What else? I am looking forward to your future patterns. Thank you!

    Easy and stylish

    This is a very easy pattern to whip up and with the right fabric choices can be dressed up or a casual piece. I’ll be making a few of these!
