Rosemary's is a classic dress that you will fall in love with every time you make it! Every detail on this dress was thoughtfully created with our customer's (and their sewing businesses) in mind! The bodice's center panels are a real "statement piece" on this dress; they are perfect for customizing with cut files, embroidery, or a fussy cut fabric to give your dress that expensive, one-of-a-kind look that you love! You can keep the center panel simple with just the panel, or you can choose to add a lace trim or ruffle to make it even more eye-catching. The unique back panel can have elastic casing or shirring to create that fitted-bodice look; it easily slides on and off with all the coverage you love. If you're looking to really wow people, we've added a beautiful, flutter bodice option that puts this dress over the top; its gorgeous in all sorts of fabrics including chambray, linens, and laces! You can always, of course, choose to leave the flutter bodice option off and instead add a classic flutter sleeve with simply stunning results. We kept the skirt simple with this pattern to keep the focus on the bodice; it includes a dress and tunic version along with an optional trim band. Finally, the optional sash ties are really the "cherry" on top of this design. The sky is the limit now lets see what YOU can do with it!
