Rushcutter Dress in denim

In The Folds Rushcutter 2

This denim Rushcutter dress from In The Folds is one of the first dresses that I made.

There were so many amazing versions of this on the internet, but in order to fully recreate I probably should do a FBA, but there’s so many bits to adjust that I probably never will.

Originally, I couldn’t wear the dress at all because the serging/overlocking thread made me so itchy! Fortunately, the scratchiness has died down, and I no longer notice any itchy feelings at all.

I omitted the back zip and reduces the height of the front neckline by quite a bit. I forgot to account for the removal of the zip and had to insert a little pleat below the back yolk to make things line up.

Sizing Details: I sewed a size J, but probably could have sized down.

Rivermont Dress in Chorizo

Cashmerette Rivermont Dress Red 2

I got this glorious ponte from Tessuti in Australia. I got a sample of this and a delicious chartreuse and eventually decided that this colour was perhaps more practical. In reality, I wish I’d bought both.

Cashmerette‘s Rivermont Dress & Peplum pattern is probably a t’n’t pattern at this point, and it’s so comfortable to wear, I’ve been hanging out for winter.

Sizing Details: I sewed a size 20 bodice, grading out to a 22 at the waist and a size 24 at the hip.

Lou Box Dress 1

SewDIY Lou Box Dress 1 cotton 2

I’ve made 1 other version of this Lou Box Dress No.1 from SewDIY which is in my ‘rework this piece entirely’ box of unloved sews.

I don’t really fit in to the current size range of SewDIY, but I bought the pattern anyway (back when I was less stubborn than I am now).

While this version of the dress is fine, the previous version was uncomfortably tight where the drop-sleeve shoulder met the arm, it was far too short and it was also basically impossible for me to remove it without getting my arms trapped.

Sizing Details: I sewed the XL/XXL (for up to 50″ hip) and am wearing it here with a 54″ hip
