After releasing the elasticated Rosalie skirt in collaboration with Peppermint magazine as a free pattern, we were inspired to make darted pattern pieces available to everyone as well!
Now you can make your Rosalie with darts and a fitted waistband. And because we are passionate about fit, we also included a curvy fit style for those of us with fuller hips.
Please note, this offering is simply free pattern pieces to complement Peppermint’s pattern. For full illustrated instructions and booklet, please visit Peppermint Magazine’s website. We hope you enjoy the extra option!
Get the original free pattern here at Peppermint Magazine:
Our download is a pattern pieces-only expansion, so there are no instructions for how to sew the zip and fitted waistband. We recommend the Ella skirt for fully illustrated instructions for this area. We also have an Invisible zip tutorial on our blog.
What you get:
This product is a digital download and includes printable PDFs of the pattern in both A0 (for large format printing at copy shops), and A4/US Letter size (for printing at home).
- Your PDF files are layered! You can choose to print only the sizes you need.
- There is an additional fit style for those of us that need a little extra shaping in the rear, to make fitting easy.
- Yes, there is a projector file included with this pattern (and a separate file for each hip fit style to make it even easier!)
