Main Fabric: 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 light to medium weight fabrics (they can have some stretch).

Some examples are crepe, cotton, rayon, 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!

54” wide fabrics are preferrable.  The use 45” wide fabrics is possible, but you’ll need to cut the circle skirt in panels.  I was able to cut a size 2 with a 17” length for my daughter using 45” wide fabric.

Lining: I suggest light weight cotton fabrics such as voile or lawn.  Another option is bemberg, this one is slippery and a bit harder to work with.

 

Interfacing: Light weight woven interfacing such as Pellon SF101

Zipper: 24″ invisible zipper or metal or nylon zipper.  You can use #3 or #5 Zippers by the Yard with locking pulls.
