I recently had a chance to test the soon-to-be released Ruby Dress pattern from Made By Rae…I always say yes to pattern testing when I can, I think it is a fun way to get to try out a new pattern. We are in the middle of packing and moving right now, so I probably should have said no this time but lucky for me this dress was a super fast and easy project!
This dress would be a great project for someone who is new to sewing clothes, I was able to sew it all in one evening. There are no closures, it just slips over your head. And as usual, Rae’s instructions and diagrams are super easy to follow.
I used all fabric left over from previous projects- the yoke is made from the same lace as my lace Scout Tee that I underlined with some thin white cotton from an old maternity shirt, and the body of the dress is the same hemp/organic cotton that I used to make my Colette Juniper pants. I love how it looks and feels a lot like linen but doesn’t wrinkle easily.
