Summer is for Josephines and Rubies

Some hot and steamy days are ahead of us, so I wanted to share some of my favorite summery renditions of my Josephine and Ruby patterns.

Even though we released the Josephine Tunic & Blouse when hot weather was the furthest thing from my mind, View C has instructions to make a sleeveless top with side vents. Jaime from Fancy Tiger Crafts made a gorgeous version out of Cloud9 Fabrics’ Palos Verdes Voile.

Terri at Fa Sew La has made a bunch of Josephines already! Here’s her sleeveless one:

As the mercury rises, I’ve rekindled my love for the Ruby Dress & Top pattern. It sews up so quickly, and it’s versatile: wear it with shorts or a skirt, or enjoy it on its own as a light, breezy dress.

Sarah made this bright and cheery dress and blogged about it here.

I love the bold prints paired with solid yokes on all of these:

Have you made any summery Rubies or Josephines? Share them with us on Instagram with hashtags #rubydress and #josephinepattern, or in their Flickr photo pools!

  1. Thanks for featuring my sleeveless Josephine. I just got fabric to make one for a friend– it’s such a fun pattern to sew!

  2. I am almost done with my first Ruby. I just need to finish the sleeves and neck but I left my iron at work!! I am an English teacher but I run a sewing club after school. I brought my iron with me this week and left it in my classroom Friday. I am so mad because I wanted to finish my dress this weekend.

  3. Oh my what a shock when I was sitting down going thru my RSS feed to see my face staring back at me! Thanks so much. Ruby is such a great pattern for summer, Ive made three more in the last month such a great pattern!

  4. Well, I guess I need to make both of these. My daughter is named Ruby Josephine! Summer is for Josephines and Rubies, indeed!
