I’m slowly getting back into more sewing and it feels so good! This project has been on my make list for a few months and I finally got around to it. It was a SUPER quick sew and it’s so comfortable to wear but looks really great on at the same time. This is the Ruska Knot Dress from Named Clothing’s pattern book “Breaking The Pattern”. If you don’t already own this book, you should!
I sewed up a size 2. I lengthened the outer front bodice piece by 1/2″, I wanted the knot to hit slightly lower than it’s supposed to, and I lengthened the dress to hit right above my knee. I also took the side seams out a little bit so the waist on down wouldn’t be so form fitting. I could probably take a little fabric out around the hip area along the side seam, but I really like how it fits so I won’t.
This is the perfect dress to wear with flip flops or wedges. Dress it up, dress it down. It’s a great dress for warm weather, and so comfy. I used a knit fabric I found a JOANN a few months ago. It’s more medium weight and has a peach skin like texture to it. It’s really beautiful and unique. I’m having a hard time finding on their website, and I forgot to take a picture of the bolt for you guys- I’m so sorry!!! This is a project I made for fun, just for me.
You can find my shoes under $35 here! I’m currently very obsessed with them! If you’re looking for an easy summer knit dress project- this is a really great option. Thanks for reading along and happy sewing!
