Learn How to Make “The Ruby Dress”

This beautiful pattern is classic and timeless – and perfect for beginners to dressmaking.

It has a bateaux neckline, nipped in bodice with a full skirt.  It can be made woven fabrics, cotton, satin – and for a special occasion silk !!  Once made it can be customised in so many ways. 

The pattern is sized from 8 to 18. However, if you don’t fit conventional sizes, we can teach you techniques to regrade a pattern - and how to make adjustments for smaller or larger busts, waists and bums – so that you leave with a pattern for a dress made entirely to your measurements.

We have a created 30 page manual with full sewing instructions and pictures that can then be used at home when you have finished the course.


This is a full day course and can be taken over 1 day or 2 – and the charge is £80 per day.

Tracing paper, calico for a toile, zips and bias binding can be supplied for a small fee.
