I am so excited to launch my second sewing pattern The Rhea Dress which is available to buy on my Etsy shop and here on my own website! I’ve spent a while perfecting this dress but am so happy with the result! The Rhea Dress is a loose-fitting gathered dress pattern that has a relaxed and comfortable fit. The slip-on design has no tricky fastenings and is the perfect dress pattern for beginners! The bodice is semi-fitted and lined with the dress having a looser fit on the hips. This effortlessly stylish and comfy dress features a gathered skirt with a ruffle at the bottom that will stand out in your wardrobe.
The Rhea Dress Pattern
I personally love any dresses that I can throw on without any annoying zips, so I decided I wanted to make this dress beginner-friendly and made the waist loose fitting enough so it can go over your head without the need for a zip. I had beach holidays in mind with a glass of wine in my hand when designing this sewing pattern, so I can’t wait to be wearing this on holiday sometime soon! Working with an experienced pattern grader allowed me to make this pattern in sizes UK 6-24, which I am so happy about as i’ve only ever made size 8 clothing so being able to cater for everyone and help create a more inclusive sewing community is very important to me.
Excited to make this! What height is the pattern drafted for?
Hi it’s drafted for 5ft 6.
