How to Make a Fabric Rosette
Sewing instructor and blogger Sunni Standing (AFashionableStitch.com) sewed a plaid jacket and coordinating corduroy skirt from Simplicity SewStylish pattern 1542 for "Plaid Madness," in the Fall 2013 edition of SewStylish. In this Web extra, Sunni demonstrates how to make the rosette embellishment featured on the plaid jacket. One or more simple rosettes can be an elegant or quirky addition to any outfit. Feel free to adapt this tutorial to whatever suits your needs.
