Made by Rae Ruby Dress & Top (Beginner)

(1 review) Write a Review


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.

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

*Note: The Upper Bust and Bust measurements are the most important for getting the right fit. More guidance for adjusting the fit is provided in the pattern.

Recommended Fabrics: 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.
