One Shoulder Ruched Dress

Added Aug 26, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I have combined winter jersey (medium weight) and a colorful lycra jersey for this dress. I do love colors, so I was happy to find this in my stash :) I did sew an invisible zipper at the side, but since I have used jersey it was not necessary. I think it’s very nice with the gathering at the one side. The dress is based on pattern #115 05/2014.

Material Notes





Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Evening Wear, Business

    You look great! I like the different colors it has. Makes it fun to dress it up with colored shoes.

      Thanks a lot! Your English is good, but my French is bad.. Ruching or gathering (pulling together) :-)

    I like this dress very much, too. And it seemes you are an ideal model to represent the pattern… nothing to say about your taste in matching fabrics:-)

    Your dress is nice; great style on you. I like the way the print changes angles due to the ruching.
