I am so excited to launch my second sewing pattern The Rhea Dress which is available to buy on my Etsy shop! I’ve spent a while perfecting this dress but am so happy with the result! The Rhea Dress is a loose-fitting gathered dress pattern that has a relaxed and comfortable fit. The slip-on design has no tricky fastenings and is the perfect dress pattern for beginners! The bodice is semi-fitted and lined with the dress having a looser fit on the hips. This effortlessly stylish and comfy dress features a gathered skirt with a ruffle at the bottom that will stand out in your wardrobe.
I personally love any dresses that I can throw on without any annoying zips, so I decided I wanted to make this dress beginner-friendly and made the waist loose fitting enough so it can go over your head without the need for a zip. I had beach holidays in mind with a glass of wine in my hand when designing this sewing pattern, so I can’t wait to be wearing this on holiday sometime soon! Working with an experienced pattern grader allowed me to make this pattern in sizes UK 6-16, which I am so happy about as i’ve only ever made size 8 clothing so being able to cater for everyone and help create a more inclusive sewing community is very important to me.
I also am selling made to order dresses on my Etsy shop, so if you’d like to purchase this dress in size UK 6 – 16 head on over to my shop and add it to your basket. I love sewing my own dresses but being able to sew something for someone else feels so special.
