Ruby Dress & Top
RUBY is a great, basic beginner's dress or top for woven fabrics! It features a contrast yoke and gathers for a comfortable and flattering fit without the need for bust darts, zippers, or closures. Armholes and neckline are bias-bound for an easy finish.
Suggested fabrics: Choose lightweight fabrics with drape such as linen and rayon challis for the main body of the dress/top. Try experimenting with cotton prints, eyelet, or even lace for the yoke.
.5cm wide double fold bias binding, prepackaged (XXS-S: 160cm, M-XL: 183cm, 1-3: 206cm) or an additional 23cm of yoke fabric to cut your own.
Sizing: Nine women’s sizes, XXS-XL and plus sizes 1-3
Skill level: Beginner
