The Ruby Free Dress Pattern has a very simple shape. It has a high neckline and a wide circle skirt. This pattern is very versatile and can be used for many different looks. Use floral prints for a young and fresh look, or lengthen the skirt for a more mature look. This is a pattern is one of those that you should keep in your patterns library.

The dress can be used for different styles depending on the fabric you choose, in this post are some ideas.
For a casual look use floral prints! floral print dresses are great for Spring.
If you want a formal look for a party, graduation, or prom, change to silks, lace, satin weave fabrics, and sheer fabrics.

I’ve been trying to download the free pattern for over an hour now and I’m so frustrated.
I managed to get a toolbar that I didn’t want, and you want me to get a google account which I don’t want. I only wanted the pattern which I still have been unable to get.
I followed the instructions and entered my e mail. An hour later I have not had the link to carry on.
I’m very disappointed.
You should be able to download the pattern with no email or accounts.
What length zipper should I buy?
Please please I love the dress and would love to get the pattern.
why isnt the pattern available anymore?
Sorry Charlotte, I don’t own the pattern. It was posted in the Love sewing magazine and it is no longer available.
George and Ginger has a similar pattern on their etsy page. I believe it’s called the Jawbraker dress.
How can I download the free dress patterns, especially the mermaid dress patterns?
I always include the links to download the patterns in every post.

How can i make this dress for a size 14-16
To grade up the pattern, just add 1/2″ on the side for each size – you can also make a sloper with your measurements and adjust the pattern to your measurements.
Hi Anabelle, I would like to ask you, whether dress has a seam allowance. Thank you for your responce.
I was wondering if you have the ruby dress pattern still available as I am wanting to use that as a template for my wedding dress in August this year. If not do you know where I would be able to get it from?
Thanks for your interest Jess, you should receive the link to the pattern in your first email when you sign up for the sew along.
