Meet our NEW pattern – The Ruby Top/Dress
November 13, 2014
Hello readers! Meet our newest pattern – the Ruby Top/Dress. This simple sleeveless design features a high neckline, cutaway armholes and keyhole back opening. The style is slightly flared at the hemline and makes a perfect floaty garment for the warmer months or an easy piece to layer under jackets and cardigans.
Much like our Libby A-Line Skirt Pattern, we were receiving so many requests to produce a simple top pattern that we decided to heed the call. And once we designed the top we knew instantly that it would translate into a dress so you get two patterns for the price of one!
The Ruby Top (pictured above) can be worn loose or tucked in. Also important to note is that the dress length (pictured below) is a shorter style and is designed to sit above the knee. If you prefer it longer it can be easily lengthened at the hemline so be sure to check final measurements on the pattern before you cut out your fabric.
All the images here show Ruby made up in silk crepe de chines but other suitable fabrics include light to medium weight linens or linen blends, light cottons, silk satins and rayons or viscose.
The Ruby Top/Dress Pattern is now available in all stores in hardcopy format or you can download your PDF print/-at-home/print copy shop versions here! And if Ruby’s your style, we hope you enjoy sewing her up!
