A great, basic beginner's dress or top for woven fabrics! Ruby 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.
- Six women's sizes from XS to XXL
- Thorough step-by-step instructions with diagrams, photographs, tips and hints
You will need:
- Woven fabric for dress and contrast fabric for yoke (see chart below for amounts)
- 1/4"-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.
