Tessuti Ruby Dress

I've had my eye on this pattern for quite some time, particularly after seeing versions by Rachel on Instagram. I also loved some of the variations posted on the Tessuti blog. Actually one of them, the Bondi Dress, has been made into a pattern in its own right and released today.

I made this a while ago and wore it on Christmas Day. It's made from an indigo-printed linen from Tessuti, which I've also seen in Potter Textiles. I bought the pattern and fabric with a gift voucher from a sewing friend and I'm so happy with both. I love indigo in all its variations, so this is perfect.

The pattern has slightly cut-away armholes and a high neck. I added pockets in the side seams and I think I added some length, but I can't remember now! The edges are bound with blue, ready-made bias binding.

The back neckline has a little opening and a button closure.

This is such an easy, comfortable dress and the bound neckline and armholes are very flattering. The skirt has just the right amount of flare. I love this dress so much. I can't believe I waited so long to buy the pattern!


  1. You find the nicest fabrics. And I love a bold binding. It looks cool and comfortable. I love the variation on Instagram with the deep frill on the bottom. With your height you could pull that off. Lovely and swishy!

  2. Having seen this in person, I agree that it is a really flattering dress and that fabric is just gorgeous.

  3. I love your dress! It's exactly the style I've been looking I went to the site and bought it. Really thrilled; many thanks for featuring it in a post. 😊👍

  4. Lovely dress... simple yet stylish. I love the cut away armholes.

  5. I haven't bought this pattern but have made a similar one by Burdastyle. It has remained one of my favourite dresses. I really like the fabric you chose and the pockets were a great idea.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I value every single one.
