SEWN : MEGAN NIELSEN'S RIE DRESS / TOP
Pattern: Megan Nielsen's Rie Dress and Top
Materials Used: Brown mystery knit from my stash (just as a hint I found out that if I folded my fabric differently I was able to use a lot less yardage than recommended - although it may be harder in larger sizes to do so).
Sizing: I made a size S although I think because my knit was really lightweight and stretchy (much more stretch than the 20% recommended) I could have gotten away with an XS.
Changes Made: I ended up taking about an inch out of each sleeve and the chest area. I also shortened the dress length by about 3 inches to make it more of a tunic.
Conclusion: Super fast (about 2 hours total) and easy. I am at the end of my pregnancy so I wasn't planning on making any more maternity wear, but this was so fast, plus I used stash fabric so there is no guilt with it. It feels like I am wearing a nightgown which pretty much means I will be wearing it everyday. Another stellar Megan Nielsen pattern. Love her.
