Add a vintage touch to your wardrobe with the Rue dress. This dress offers two classic silhouettes and special vintage details. Sew Rue in a wool flannel for a classic winter frock or use a crisp shirting for a breezy spring dress.
Rue offers two versions with pieces that can easily be mixed and matched to create the perfect dress for you.
Rue’s bodice features style lines that gently curve from the side seams to center front waist, emphasizing the vintage silhouette. Tucks radiate from the style lines, providing bust shaping. A scoop neckline adds a dramatic touch to this versatile dress.
Version 1 features short sleeves and a paneled pleated skirt, all finished with a full lining. Version 2 features unlined 3/4-length sleeves and a subtle A-line skirt shaped with two clustered gathers. Both the bodice and skirt are finished with a lining.
Customize your Rue dress by mixing and matching the two sleeve and skirt options. Add piping to define Rue’s style lines. Try color blocking for a bold look or experiment with striped fabric.
