Roseclair Dress Inspiration from Ready to Wear

The Cashmerette Roseclair Dress is a woven wrap dress pattern designed to fit full-busted sewists to a T! This pattern gives you the opportunity to explore so many aspects of your personal style without compromising on fit.

We designed the Roseclair Dress with three different views in mind, but you can mix and match the skirts and sleeves to your heart’s content. The Roseclair is the first pattern we’ve launched in both our 0-16 and 12-32 range at the same time—so busty sewists across both size ranges can rejoice!

If you don’t know which size to make, or if you’re not sure which range will work for you, visit our size calculator and then read this blog post about the differences between the two ranges.

Interested to see what you can make with the Roseclair Dress? We’ve rounded up some inspiration from bloggers and ready-to-wear brands to get those creative juices flowing!

View A Inspiration for the Cashmerette Roseclair


View A of the Roseclair has gathered 3/4–length bishop sleeves and an ankle-length tiered skirt. It’s definitely the more dramatic of the three views, but these models show us that you can play with prints, sheer fabrics and skirt lengths to dial up the wow-factor or tone things down into a more casual look.

This view also lends itself to border prints and color blocking, and if you have a super large-scale print to use, this view gives you the opportunity to show it off. You could even consider making an entirely sheer Roseclair and wearing a slip underneath for a dazzling evening look!

View B & C Inspiration for the Cashmerette Roseclair Dress


Views B & C of the Roseclair feature a knee-length skirt, but View B has a short puffed sleeve and View C has a short flutter sleeve. Fun fact, both sleeves use the same pattern piece—they’re just hemmed differently. So you could insert the sleeves and then make your hem choice after constructing the dress.

The short sleeves and short skirt make Views B & C classic choices for a flirty sundress, but remember, you could always mix things up and make a knee-length dress with long bishop sleeves or use the puffed sleeve with the ankle-length tiered skirt.
