I chose a crisp cotton lawn from my stash, originally purchased from Belleboo from when I lived in Bangkok.
The Roseclair has puffy sleeves. A short puffy sleeve with puff on both ends, a short sleeve puffed at the sleeve cap, or this third option, which I chose. They call them bishop sleeves. They're both gathered at the sleeve cap and voluminous through the arm, gathered into a cuff. They're cut at an interesting angle so they hang nicely when your arm is bent.
Am I a puffy sleeve person? I'm leaning towards yes, but there's still a part of me that feels like Jerry Seinfeld in his puffy shirt when I wear them.
The Roseclair has no closures, just inner and outer ties at the side seams. I kinda wish it had a "belt" tie, more like the Appleton (or the Elodie, my most recent woven wrap project). I like a belt; makes me feel secure. I think that could be easy to hack on the Roseclair, though.
I also don't love how the internal and external side ties pull the side seams to the front. And I find them weirdly difficult to tie all the way over on the side seams. This could also be easily solved with a belt/longer tie.
The Roseclair is very easy to sew. The only fiddly part to sew is probably the bias-bound neckline, but it's really very doable, especially if you use a crisp cotton lawn like I did.
The only construction changes I made were to only interface half of the cuffs, rather than the whole pattern piece, and to cut the back skirt on the fold because I had plenty of fabric to do so.
I'm very happy with the coverage on the wrap skirt, as well as the wrap top. The skirt is basically double coverage in the front. And on the blouse, I'm finding there is no gaping at all. I do find myself fiddling with it a little bit: does the wrap go under the boob, or across?
