Rhubarb Top/Dress


Create Wishlist

The Rhubarb will be familiar to anyone who has seen it’s woven counterpart, the Raven. This knit version is my vision completed with the beautiful, ruffled yoke and a completely different bodice and sleeve to create a new look. The ties, the back band or the raised scoop give detail to the back. The banded hems and cuffs paired with the ruffle make a gorgeous sweater or comfy dress. The relaxed fit means this will last for a long time and every sewist loves that!

Recommended Fabrics: 

Light to medium-weight knits such as cotton lycra, interlock or double brushed poly. Sweater knits and other loose 4-way knits can be used, but length adjustments will be necessary for tunic and dress as the weight will pull the fabric down. These are better suited for the top.

Hem bands for sleeves and waistline of top require approximately 60% stretch.

**While many knits can be used, it is recommended to use a fabric with good recovery for the yoke lining when choosing a main fabric that does not have it. This will help to keep the neckline from stretching out.


**The band for back scoop requires fabric with good recovery.

Such a great pattern
Written by Katie Kes-Pick on 2020 Sep 7th

My tween loves this pattern. She picked it out for a first day of school outfit. It turned out so great. Your patterns are well made and very finished. The end result looks professional. I will be making more!

This pattern makes for some beautiful and fun garments! I've already made the top and tunic for my 3 year old and love them both on her! As you can always expect from Sofiona Designs, the instructions are very well laid out and the finishes are top notch.

Fun pattern

This is such a fun pattern for heavier knits. always hard to find something mature and fun for winter. I'm wishing I'd done a 3/4 length sleeve though ahahha oh well. I have more sweater fabric I need to use up. There are a lot of options, I love the top version as well. Just follow the instructions carefully, and they'll guide you along.
