Rowena is a classic silhouette that includes two variations, allowing you to make a modern jumpsuit and a versatile pair of pants. Both views offer sweeping wide-leg pants with slash side pockets. A shirred waistband provides a flexible fit and a flattering textural element. The jumpsuit view features wide elbow-length, grown-on sleeves with overlapping front and back bodice panels that create a V-neckline. The front bodice features two released pleats at the bust and a tie that secures the bodice panels at the back. Slip easily into both styles since there are no complicated closures.
Shirring uses elastic bobbin thread to add a beautiful texture and comfortable stretch to a garment. The Rowena pattern teaches you how to master this technique.
We created this video tutorial for our Sofia pattern, but you will find a wealth of knowledge here that will help you as you sew Rowena.
