I’m so excited to announce the re-release of the Rie dress and top PDF sewing pattern!

Rie is a tunic dress or top with yoke and above elbows sleeves. Pattern features fitted yoke with gathers from above the bust and can be worn as maternity wear. Version 1 is a tunic dress with above elbow sleeves. Version 2 is a sleeveless maxi dress. Version 3 is a short sleeve top.

The original pattern has been adjusted to make it work beautifully as maternity and non-maternity wear. We’ve also added two new variations- a short sleeved top and a sleevelesss maxi dress which includes lengths for petite and tall heights.

We’ve had so many requests to bring Rie back, and I am so excited to finally share the new and improved pattern with you! I really hope you  enjoy it!

What type of fabric would you recommend for this pattern? Is it designed just to be used with knits? Thanks!
