The Rushcutter is beautifully designed and carefully drafted to include many interesting details, to make this a very enjoyable sew for sewers at a range of different levels. The pattern comes with instructions alongside full colour photographs that hold your hand every step of the way (there is also a ‘cheat sheet’ available for those of you who don’t want your hand held) which can be printed at home, or simply viewed on a computer or tablet.View A features three-quarter length raglan sleeves, large side pockets, invisible zip, bound neckline and a wide hem facing. View B is a sleeveless version, with back button closure. It features in-seam pockets, with neckline and armholes finished with bias binding. Included in the pattern is an optional waist sash, that is suitable for both styles. The pattern is available in 10 sizes (A – K) and is nested, to make it easier for you to grade between sizes. For more information about sizing, please visit the Sizing Chart.

Suggested fabrics: The Rushcutter is quite a versatile pattern and is compatible with a range of different fabrics. Consider using, light to mid-weight fabrics such as: cotton shirting, poplin, sateen, linen, silk, light to mid-weight wool, chambray, light to mid-weight denim. Your fabric choice will have a big impact on the silhouette you will achieve. For a more structured, boxy look, consider mid-weight denim, twill or jacquard. Or, for a more relaxed, draped look, consider a viscose blend or silk crepe de chine.

    5 out of 5 Wearable toile Rushcutter top

    MelleMiio

    I sewed this version as a wearable toile. The initial goal was to test the pattern before making it as the top of my best friend’s wedding outfit. The making is therefore far from perfect …

    As you can see, I used a fabric remnant from my Goji skirt for the small yoke on the front. The two pieces work very nicely together set without falling into a total look … not my cup of tea.

    Kate: I cannot recommend this pattern highly enough – had not fitting issues at all and I think it is going to become a wardrobe staple! I made in a heavyweight crepe which has a lovely drape. The instructions are really clear and the photos and step by step means you have it made in no time. I really like the raglans sleeves and these are perfect for those who are scared of inserting a sleeve!

    I used cotton woven for the version that I tested. I made the sleeveless version (View B) with optional sash. I opted to color blocks the bodice and back. I love how easy to follow the instruction were, the photos in the instructions were clear and precisely what I needed when I was looking for a visual of the directions.
    I really liked the overall look of the dress, it’s so neat and clean. It has a very relaxed and professional look and feel.

    I used a cotton in my version of the Rushcutter.

    The instructions where amazing and extremely detailed. There is a step by step pictured instructions for beginners and another simpler version for more experienced sewers. Plus, there is an sew along on the In the Folds website for all fitting and hacking questions/problems.

    It has a very relaxed. I found no fitting issues but changed the style to a more fitted look which was very easy to do.
