A Shameless Copy - Miss Ruby Tuesday by 1 Puddle Lane

January 17, 2019

I'm not going to lie when I say this make is a shameless copy and my friend, Beth, and I will now need to coordinate outfits to make sure we don't match.  She posted this Hope in Black Double Brushed Polyester from Lush Fabrics in her feed and I knew I had to have it.  If iI remember correctly I snagged one of the last bits they had in stock at the time.

Beth had made a Miss Ruby Tuesday Dress by 1 Puddle Lane from her fabric and I loved the shape of the bodice.  I'm not much of a dress wearer though, but as a sucker for a good peplum I knew that was just what I needed to make from this fabric.

I used the boat neck and scoop back for my top.  The beauty of the MRT pattern is the sheer number of views which are included and the ability to mix and match them to create so many different garments from one pattern. Talk about value for money.

One think worth noting is that it is drafted for quite a short height.  I had to add two inches of length. I initially added 2.5 inches which was too much and then I promptly reduced it back to 2 inches.  Being a knit pattern it was a quick sew and something which is often pulled out of my wardrobe when I need something a bit dressier than a tshirt.
