Ruched Top & Dress
This is a PDF sewing pattern and tutorial to teach you how to create these garments. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING IN THE MAIL.
The Ruched Top & Dress is drafted as a snug fit throughout to give a classic, curve hugging silhuoette. Side seams have a small amount of ruching from bust to hip to give a comfortable and forgiving fit. So many lengths included to fit your preference for every occasion. Crop, Top, and Shirt lengths also include an option for side ties to add a cute detail and to give you more freedom in how much you ruche it up or not. The longer dress lengths including Midi and Maxi have a side seam split for a fun to wear and elegant walking vent for the slim fitting skirt. You can add a shelf bra into any option and turn it into a workout top, swimsuit/rashguard, or just to go braless/give more support for the bust. You can sew up a top or dress perfect for any weather with all the sleeve options. You can also choose from a higher crew neckline or a lower jewel neckline on any option. This pattern also works well for maternity wear (I just recommend grading out the front piece at the waist to accommodate bump).
- Seven Hem Lengths: Crop, Top, Shirt, Mini, Knee, Midi + Maxi
- Four Sleeve Options: Tank, Short, 3/4, + Long
- Two Neckline Options: Higher Crew, Lower Jewel
- Optional Shelf Bra
- Crop, Top, Shirt Only: Tie Side Seam Option
- Midi, Maxi Only: Side Seam Leg Split
The Ruched Top & Dress Pattern is drafted for light-to-medium weight knit fabrics with at least 30% horizontal stretch. Fabrics that have good recovery will work best for this pattern so it doesn’t end up “sagging” after wear. Fabrics that are more stable will show gathering/ruching more. The fabrics with more drape will not show the gathering as much and the center back and front will drape down in a curve (also a cute look). The shelf bra must have high stretch knit fabrics like swim, athlethic, or high quality cotton spandex.
Specific Fabric Suggestions: Ribbed knits, cotton spandex, cotton jersey, modal/rayon/bamboo with good recover, sweater knit, waffle knits with good recovery, swim knit, athletic knits, double brushed polyester, DTY, ITY, etc.
Sizes included: XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, Plus 1X, Plus 2X, Plus 3X, Plus 4X, and Plus 5X (sizing/measurement chart on last picture). Both imperial and metric measurements included. You will receive the easy to print and match color coded pattern pieces on NO TRIM PAGES and have LAYERS so you can print only the size you need. In US letter, A4, A0 paper size, and Projector file formats, a cutting guide for rectangle pieces and rectangle pattern pieces included (so you can pick your preference to print a piece or not) and a full color and detailed picture step-by-step tutorial and guide to making the garment.
