I knew I had to make the Rushcutter dress by the indie pattern maker, In The Folds, from Australia. It’s a PDF pattern, which is always great for us that live in no man’s land without sewing shops or reliable postal services.
I love this quick and easy dress…with pockets! For my shape I definitely had to do the belted version. This version also had a button neck, but I swapped it out for an invisible zipper. I also made a rolled hem rather than the wide one used in the pattern. This was a mistake. I love the graphic stripes, but the fabric was bought in Romania, which brings to question it’s quality and type. Of course it said cotton, but it’s definitely a heavy synthetic that shreds. Not super fun material to sew with, but I totally love the visual results.
I will defnitely be making more of these dresses with summer in mind.
