Have you seen the latest Megan Nielsen Karri Dress sewing pattern? It's a multi paneled dress with distinctive style lines, and as you can see from the photographs, this pattern is perfect for using up scraps of coordinating or contrasting fabrics, because of the small pattern pieces. But it is equally as striking and beautiful made up with just one fabric.
The Megan Nielsen Karri Dress pattern features princess seams, a flared skirt, anchored side seam pockets, short sleeves, a centre back invisible zipper and a full lining. The pattern is suitable for intermediate sewists. Recommended fabrics for the pattern are light to medium weight dress fabrics such as cotton, wool, linen, denim, chambray, silk etc. Try a light denim, a linen/cotton chambray, a Robert Kaufmann cotton chambray, or a Michael Miller Clipdot embroidered cotton lawn. The Atelier Brunette cambrics would also make beautiful dresses:
Another fairly recent pattern from Megan Nielsen is the Harper Shorts and Skort sewing pattern, which was released at the end of last Summer. The pattern comprises both stylish and comfortable shorts and a pleated skort. The design sits just below the natural waistline, features a modern fit, two lengths and a full lining. The shorts have curved patch pockets and the skort has slash pockets. It combines the comfort of shorts with the appearance of a skirt. Recommended fabrics for these styles are medium weight fabrics such as denim, twill, poplin, broadcloth, linen, linen blends, suiting, gabardine, pique and wool blends.
