Rhea Dress Sewing Pattern Digital PDF Sizes 6-24
The Rhea Dress is an effortlessly stylish, v-neck dress with a semi-fitted bodice and loose waist and hips for maximum comfort. The dress will stand out in your wardrobe as it has a gathered waist detail that flares out to a gorgeous ruffled hem. This sewing pattern is perfect for beginners as the dress is a slip-on style that has no tricky fastenings.
This dress is a dream to sew with a gorgeous cotton, but will look incredible in any light/medium weight woven non-stretch fabric such as Satin, Cotton Poplin, Rayon/Viscose, Crepe, and Chiffon. The skirt of this dress is not lined, so you will need to make sure the fabric is not too see-through, alternatively you could line the skirt too.
For sizes 6 - 16 you will need 2.5 metres or 2.7 yards of fabric and between 1/2 or 3/4 of a metre for lining. The majority of pattern pieces is cut on the fold, so it is advised to use a fabric that has a width of 50" or more. For sizes 18 - 24 you will need 2.8 metres or 3 yards of fabric and 3/4 of a metre for the lining. I recommend using a fabric that is 56-58" wide.
This sewing pattern is designed for a looser fit, so when choosing sizes go by your bust measurement.
