I bought 2,5m of a light to medium weight cotton denim fabric from ifasma.eu for 8 euros per meter. I purchased it back in January, having Rosa dress on my mind.
I decided to make my Rosa dress with short sleeves. I kept ~1/3 of the 3/4 sleeve in order to have short sleeves. Then, I zic-zac the bottom edge of each sleeve and simply I rolled them up twice. If the weather was cold enough I would have chosen to make the dress with long sleeves because I really like how it looks! Can’t wait to make the long sleeved version for the upcoming Fall! If you are interested in this also, here is the link to the pdf file for long sleeves that Tilly provides through her blog.

I’m soo pleased with my Rosa dress! I have worn it a ton since I made it! The cotton fabric works perfectly for the summer and it feels good against my skin. I’m looking forward to making another Rosa dress for the Fall! I would looove to use a navy corduroy! Haven’t made a Rosa dress yet? Go and make one for yourself!
