Ruby Dress from Tessuti Fabrics

Over the weekend I finished my Ruby dress from Tessuti Fabrics. This breezy rayon challis  was on clearance from fabric.com for $6/yard. Great deal!

I got some more practice with neckline and armhole binding with this pattern. The pattern also linked to a tutorial for joining bias binding but for some reason it just was not computing in my head, so I fudged it a little bit and improvised joining the binding ends together. It’s a little messy but it’s at the bottom of the armhole anyway 🙂 I could still use some more practice with binding…one of the armholes on my dress sticks out a bit.

I also love the keyhole back opening on this dress. It got a little bunched up going around the bottom, but still looks cute!

This dress also looks great styled in different days. The other day it was overcast and chilly, so I wore it with black tights, tall black boots, and my asymmetrical zip black moto jacket. Also looks good with a jean jacket, or with my beige ankle buckle flats. So many ways to wear this!
