Duchess & Hare
Sweet as Pie and Bare Necessities
Sweet as Pie is a quick easy dress or top with bias ties at the shoulders. Two cut lines for top length or dress length for versatility. With a ruffle, the dress falls 1- 2” above the knee, or keep the ruffle off for top length. Top hits at high hip, but if you add a ruffle, you get a tunic length which hits under the bottom. There are also two neck options, with or without a yoke for a total of 8 different mix and match options in one pattern.
Bare Necessities is a pair of ruffled shorts with 2 rows of ruffles. They are long enough to peek out under a tunic but cute enough to wear alone. The narrow ruffles are perfect under summer dresses. They are easily customized by adding or eliminating extra rows of ruffles.
Both patterns are beginner friendly and quick to sew.
Because this pattern has so many options, I highly recommend using the layers feature in adobe. This will help keep all of the sizes easy to cut.
