Welcome to the Ruby Dress Sew Along!

 

The Ruby Dress is very versatile.  You can dress up or down depending on the fabric that you use.  Your fabric options for this dress are unlimited.  I suggest medium weight fabrics (they can have some stretch). Some examples are crepe, medium-weight cottons such as twill, linen, cotton/linen blends, denim or even suiting fabrics. Consider when you plan on wearing your dress while you choose your fabric. If you are going to use it in a warm weather, stick with natural fibers!

If you want a casual dress, floral prints, denim or twill are good options.

If you want to dress up you can use crepe or satin.

For the lining, I suggest light weight cotton fabrics such as voile or lawn.  Another option is bemberg.

 

 

Ruby Dress

You’ll need:

 

For my Ruby Dress I chose a beautiful medium weight wool in red and for the lining I’m using cotton (also in red) and since the zipper will be exposed, I’m using Nylon Coil Zipper (by the yard) in red with gold coil.  These zippers are nylon but look like metal.

 

Inspiration

You style options are unlimited! you can use different fabrics for many different looks.  For inspiration, you can check my Ruby Dress Pinterest Board.

If you are using a thick fabric,  it’s a good idea to use a coordinating light-medium weight fabric for the lining to avoid bulky seams.

Anabelle
