The Rugby Hack

This is a hack for creating the Rugby dress with a gathered back. The Rugby is a neat fitting straight garment but introducing the gathers creates some fullness. You can add in more fullness than we have but be mindful how much, as too much could create heaviness and pulling. 

Our models are a size 12, 5.8, and are wearing a size 12. This dress is made our of Sugar Cookie Stripe Linen with the contrast being Virgin White 185 linen.
