Sewing with knits not your favorite? Looking for a great button down shirt this summer with several different options? Then Jalie’s latest pattern, Rose is the pattern for you! This design is for a relaxed-fit sleeveless, button down top with an optional shoulder ruffle and tie. All versions also have a rounded hem, back yoke, forward shoulder seam and box pleat at the back – adult versions also have bust darts.
When I tested this pattern, I went with the “standard” version (no pocket) and stitched it up in a Gertie cotton print (because what screams summer more that a pretty cherry design? This was also one of the easiest button down shirts that I’ve made and came together in a day! As for the fit, keep in mind that it is designed to be relaxed – if you want something slightly more fitted I suggest you go down at least one size.
