With hours to spare here I am with my entry for #sewingpatternsandprints #SewingMonochromeMay. It’s my first Megan Nielsen River Dress in Alison Glass fabric that’s been in my stash for a couple of years. I can’t remember the name of this fabric but the print reminds me of coral.

I sewed this up on my regular machine but overlocked the main seams. I’m not 100% happy with my top stitching on the neckline but I think I was just keen to get it finished so I could wear it. All in all it was a straightforward pattern and I like the belt loops and also the fact it’s reversible – you can wear the V to the front or the back! Plus, it has pockets! The design of the sleeves is quite unusual and I like the length which I didn’t modify at all. This dress has been worn all day and was comfortable and practical and I’m already looking forward to making another in a different print fabric to compare. Also, amazingly this pattern is suitable for knits so there are many possible variations. It may have just jumped its way to the front of my sewing queue, I just need to pick the fabric.
