I have a quick post today. This weekend I made a grown woman dress πŸ˜„

It’s Made for Mermaids Ruby, a bodycon spaghetti strap dress and top with a bunch of length variations .

With a faux button placket and split option.

2 piece back for some extra shaping.

πŸ˜† I’m just now noticing the v-neck!

Of course there’s a kids pattern too!

I made this pattern as is, no design modifications.

I did grade down in the hip area because it’s a form fitting dress. It wouldn’t have looked right with excess fabric on the hips. Inverted triangle shape here!

Oh and I didn’t hem…if I can get away without hemming, I won’t hem…That’s one of the things I love about knits!

Rib knit from Mily Mae, there is 1 more color way still available. This one is the Brown/Tan


  • Size green graded down to indigo in the hips
  • Scoop neck
  • Dress length

I paired the dress with a duster from Walmart (purchased last year).

Happy Creating!
