A great, basic beginner's dress or top for woven fabrics! Ruby features a contrast yoke and gathers for a comfortable fit without the need for bust darts, zippers, or closures. Armholes and neckline are bias-bound for an easy finish. Two lengths, dress (above the knee) and top (hip length) are included.
This pattern includes women's sizes XXS-XL and plus sizes 1-3
