Ruby Dress and Top pattern by Made by Rae
Ruby is a great project for the beginner sewist who wants to give garment sewing a try.
The pattern features a contrast yoke and gathers for a comfortable and flattering fit without the need for bust darts, zippers, or closures. The armholes and neckline are bias-bound for an easy finish.
Six women’s sizes (XS-XXL) in two lengths are included; the dress falls above the knee, while the top ends right at the hip.
- 6mm wide double-fold bias tape, prepackaged (or instructions provided to cut your own)
- Coordinating thread
For the most flattering fit, we recommend lighter 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.
Suitable for beginners
