Welcome to my blog! I created ‘The Ravel Out’ to capture my makes while I unravel my sewing ideas, one stitch at a time.

Ravel (out)


  1. unravel; untangle.

  2. undo (twisted, knitted, or woven threads).

The Yuya Dress

The Yuya Dress

Hi sewcialists!

I recently had the opportunity to pattern test for a pattern company based in Germany. Talk about sewing around the world! :-)


When Damar Studio reached out to ask if I was interested in testing the Yuya dress pattern, I jumped on it for two main reasons:

  1. The asymmetric shape of the dress is a little out of my comfort zone and style but I love to challenge myself.

  2. Damar Studio is a pattern company with a fun creative expression. I thought pattern testing would be a fun way to try a new company.


The Yuya dress comes as a PDF pattern and is pretty easy to put together. If you’ve ever used a PDF pattern, you know the drill. There are 2 versions. I chose to do View A which is the asymmetric version. Once the PDF pattern and fabric were cut, it literally took me about an hour to sew it up, just how I like it. 


I used a polyester knit and made an XL because I wanted a loose fit. You can sew it tighter if you wish. Below are my measurements to give you a better idea of fit.

My Bust 99 cm / 39 in

My Waist 87 cm /34 in

My Hip 114 cm /45 in


If you are looking for a simple pattern that has endless possibilities, is easy and fast to sew, this may be the one for you!

Happy Sewing!
