OutFit: Rosettes

Fashionable rosettes

In the 1920s, women carried circles of fabric in their pockets and, when they had a spare moment, they would make rosettes, material pleated to look like flowers.

Later they would take the colorful rosettes and make a beautiful quilt.

This functional and creative way of recycling fabric has caught on as the latest trend in fashion.

Look for rosettes on the neckline of a blouse to add elegance and texture.

Rosettes on the hem of a skirt or dress gives it dimension with a little homespun sweetness.

A bobby pin attached to a rosette creates a unique hair clip.

Whether you make or buy them, rosettes are sure to be the first flowers we see this spring.
