Installments by   available from $100 More info




The Rushcutter is an oversized knee-length, A-line dress, designed for woven fabrics, available in two different styles. 

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.

You will receive:

- A printed booklet with fully illustrated instructions to hold your hand every step of the way. 

- Two options:

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.

Difficulty:

The pattern is placed at a Level 4 on the In the Folds pattern skill scale, which means you should have a few projects under your belt before tackling this one.

Techniques involved include: 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).

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.

Fantastic service

I have recently bought online some denim, pattern and zip etc to suit making myself some jeans. I had no idea of what quality to expect as my purchase was sight unseen. Not only is the denim a fantastic quality fabric, my order arrived within a couple of days. I was pleased with my purchase and doubly pleased that I supported a local supplier too. Well done Maaidesign.

Great service. High quality fabric.

The linen is beautiful. Service is great. Packaging is kept to a minimum and where it is used it’s environmentally responsible. I’ll be back.

I am very happy with my purchase. I ordered my patterns during the bushfire crisis in Victoria. Maaike emailed me to advise that there could be a delay in delivery due to the
fires. She responded to my inquiry very quickly and made me feel that my purchase was important to her.
When my parcel arrived I was very impressed with the little personal touches. I also received a lovely gift that I have been using. I will definitely order through Maaidedesigns again.

Love my lovely green denim and can't wait to make a pair of Dawn jeans. Maaike even included an extra 20cm bonus! Thanks Maaike!
