In The Folds – The Rushcutter Dress Pattern

22,60

The Rushcutter is an oversized knee-length, A-line dress, designed for woven fabrics, available in two different styles. It is beautifully designed and carefully drafted to include many interesting details, to make this a very enjoyable sew for sewers at a range of different levels.

View A features three-quarter length raglan sleeves, large side pockets, invisible zip, bound neckline and a wide hem facing.

View B is a sleeveless version, with back button closure. It features in-seam pockets, with neckline and armholes finished with bias binding. Included in the pattern is an optional waist sash, that is suitable for both styles.

DIFFICULTY

By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: sewing a straight seam, sewing a curved seam, bias facing armholes / neckline, sewing buttonholes, buttons and an invisible zip (depending on which view you decide to make).

The Rushcutter is quite a versatile pattern and is compatible with a range of different fabrics. Consider using, light to mid-weight fabrics such as: cotton shirting, poplin, sateen, linen, silk, light to mid-weight wool, chambray or light to mid-weight denim.

Fabric requirements and finished garment measurements can be found here.

Your fabric choice will have a big impact on the silhouette you will achieve. For a more structured, boxy look, consider mid-weight denim, twill or jacquard. Or, for a more relaxed, draped look, consider a viscose blend or silk crepe de chine.

“I’m a Sydney-based designer maker who has been sewing for as long as I can remember. At the very beginning of my sewing journey, I fell in love with the new-found ability to turn a two dimensional piece of cloth into a three dimensional object that fits the body with an array of tucks and seams. I have been exploring that principle in one way or another ever since.

My background is in fashion design – I hold a Bachelor of Design in Fashion and Textiles – from Sydney’s UTS, where I spent four years honing my skills in pattern making and construction. So involved in my studies, and the plan to start a career in the fashion industry, I had no idea that there was a flourishing online sewing community, until I accidentally stumbled upon it a couple of years after finishing university. I had moved to London and the move had made me really think about what I wanted to do long-term. Fashion no longer felt like the right fit for me as I had realised that a career in fashion would mean disconnecting myself from the hands-on side of making – the thing I loved the most. With a path that was a bit of a zig-zag (the best stories aren’t ever straight lines, right?), I decided to return to where it all started for me – the world of home sewing.”
