Rushcutter Dress Pattern by In the Folds

The Rushcutter is an oversized knee-length, A-line dress, designed for woven fabrics, available in two different styles.

The Rushcutter is beautifully designed and carefully drafted to include many interesting details, to make this a very enjoyable sew for sewers at a range of different levels.

View A features three-quarter length raglan sleeves, large side pockets, invisible zip, bound neckline and a wide hem facing.

View B is a sleeveless version, with back button closure. It features in-seam pockets, with neckline and armholes finished with bias binding. Included in the pattern is an optional waist sash, that is suitable for both styles.

Sizing:

Using a unique sizing (A-J) which is equivalent to UK size 6-24. For more information, see this measurement chart.

Suggested Fabrics:

The Rushcutter is quite a versatile pattern and is compatible with a range of different fabrics. Consider using, light to mid-weight fabrics such as: cotton shirting, poplin, sateen, linen, silk, light to mid-weight wool, chambray or light to mid-weight denim.

Your fabric choice will have a big impact on the silhouette you will achieve. For a more structured, boxy look, consider mid-weight denim, twill or jacquard. Or, for a more relaxed, draped look, consider a viscose blend or silk crepe de chine.

Notions:

View A:
    • 40cm (16in) invisible zip
    • Coordinating thread
    • 1m (1 yard) x 35mm (1 1/4in) single-fold bias tape
View B:
    • 3 x 10mm (5/8in) buttons
    • Coordinating thread
    • 2m (2 1/4 yards) x 35mm (1 1/4in) single-fold bias tape
    • Small strip of lightweight iron-on interfacing for button stand (if required)

Difficulty:

Advanced beginners who are ready for new challenges. By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: sewing a straight seam, sewing a curved seam, bias facing armholes / neckline, sewing buttonholes, buttons and an invisible zip (depending on which view you decide to make).
