Get ready for our first Rooibos Sewalong, starting next week!
The Rooibos dress is one of my favorites. It has a very flattering and fitted shape, but a nice short length gives it more of a 60s vibe. The magic is, of course, in the details: The pretty scalloped pockets and the tiny little contrasting collar.
Aside from that, I chose Rooibos because it’s a great transitional piece. You can make it in cotton or linen for the current summer temperatures, or try wool for a warm Fall dress you can wear with cardigans and tights.
I would rate the sewalong as advanced beginner to intermediate.
This pattern is rated as intermediate, but if you follow the sewalong, I think just about anyone can make this. We’ll go over the more challenging parts of the construction together: fitting, sewing curved seams, the all-in-one facing technique, and pockets. We’ll also talk about basics like hemming and finishing.
