A project I've had sitting around for a month or so..still needs about half the rosettes sewed on (pinned on currently). Self-drafted upper bodice pattern with a simple gathered bubble-skirt-type bottom.

Rosettes made by cutting strips of jersey into varying thicknesses and lengths, sewing a gathering stitch up the middle, ruffling, and then spinning into a circular flower shape and sewing together.

The upper bodice portion was sewn like a "bag" with a total of 4 pieces (2 front, 2 back pieces), turned inside out and sewed up with a whipstitch and pressed so no raw edges or hems would be visible. Adds a nice thickness to the fabric and lets me wear it without a bra!



Interlock knit in cream for the bottom part and rosettes, jet set knit in teal used for the upper bodice. I messed up when cutting the waistband though and it stretches vertically instead of horizontally....so I'm going to have to lose a bit more weight before I can wear this comfortably, lol. Yay, incentives. Also, I have since tweaked my pattern to make the back a bit higher and the shoulder straps a bit thicker and plan on making a top using the modified version soonishly.

Wow this is so cute! I love the bubble hem - i still have to attempt a top with a bubble hem, and I really like the way you did this one.  Would love to see a detail of the rosettes
