My First Ruby Dress!!
Guess what I’ve managed to make and not made a hash of it…..a Dress at last!!!!!
I’ve used the ever so easy to follow Ruby Dress by Simple Sew which was free from Issue 4 of Love Sewing Magazine, see I am getting round to using my free patterns from magazines 😉
If you follow this link here It’ll take you to the same pattern I’ve used here FREE for you to download and print!! How awesome is that?!
Me and the Family went on a trip to Fletchers Fabrics of York and came across this delightful Woodland Animal Print in Cream and Navy, It was crying out to made into a Dress and a steal of a Price at £7.99 a Metre with it being 100% Cotton and 60″ wide. It Washed real well and feels real nice against the skin.
I didn’t had to alter the pattern much either as i measured as 10 in the bust with just a little bit of adjustment in my waist as its smaller than the measurements on back of the packet, sorry I’m blessed with a tiny waist! It doesn’t matter that much about the hip measurement as its quite a full circle skirt so it skims that bit which is awesome 🙂
Love the sexiness of the V neck back, I had even managed to insert a invisible zip for the 1st time with ease too! So it’s a awesome day in the Kendall household!
So with myself being a newbie to sewing that was easy to follow, i can see myself making more of these!
Materials I’ve used:
2.5m of 60″ Wide 100% Cotton Fabric
50cm of Medium Weight Interfacing
16″ Invisible Zip – I had bought a 22″ zip without realizing but made it shorter no problem to fit 🙂
Ta ta for now!
