Megan Nielsen River Dress from Art Gallery Fabric
Posted in Projects on Wednesday the 10th October 2018 by Vicki Ormerod
I was very excited to try out this gorgeous stretch Jersey Fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics. This print is ‘Sprayed Blooms’ and the colours are perfect for breezy summer days. The fabric itself is super soft and has a lovely amount of stretch with good recovery. It comes in a huge array of prints and is stretchy enough for leggings and t-shirts and stable enough for pants, tops, dresses and cargigans. Depending on the print and pattern you choose, this fabric would be useful for making garments for all seasons.
The pattern I used is the River Dress and Top by Megan Nielsen. It is casual dress with a V-neck, tie belt and raglan sleeves. The instructions for a neat V-neck are fantastic and the pattern piece is cleverly shaped so that it’s difficult to go wrong. The rest of the dress is very easy to sew and comes together very quickly. A perfect beginner project.
This dress pattern is also reversible. The other side has a round neck. I chose to wear the V-neck at the front for these pictures, but it looks good either way.
The Art Gallery knit fabric was lovely to work with. It laid nice and flat on the cutting table (no annoying rolled edges!) and sewed beautifully.
The fabric drapes very nicely and is excellent quality. I am very happy with this dress and the fabric elevates it to the next level!
Thanks for reading,
