MORE DETAILS – 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. 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.

PRINTED PATTERN – You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full scale pattern sheets and a booklet to guide you through the steps.

SKILL LEVEL – The pattern is placed at a Level 2 on the In the Folds pattern skill scale.

By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: sewing a straight seam, sewing a curved seam, bias facing armholes / neckline, sewing buttonholes, buttons and an invisible zip (depending on which view you decide to make).

FABRIC SUGGESTIONS – 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 or 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.
