I’m so excited to finally get to share these makes with you! I was thrilled to be a tester for Megan Nielsen’s latest pattern, the River Top and Dress. This dress was one of my most worn this winter and it’s been torture not to be able to share it with you all!
This pattern includes so many options! It’s a fun reversible raglan sleeve top or dress that can be made in both knits or wovens. It can be worn with the v-neckline in the front or back making it so versatile!
The relaxed fit made it so perfect for hiding all those holiday pounds and for keeping me comfortable all winter long. I loved pairing it with tights and a cardigan for an easy casual church outfit.
I made this version out of a thick plaid double knit from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I absolutely love this fabric and it was perfect for this pattern. It has both structure and stretch and is so soft. It’s no wonder I couldn’t get enough of this dress.
I also did a top version in a houndstooth ponte (from my stash) that I just love! The cropped length was so flattering and made me feel slightly edgier and way cooler than my normal jeans and tee 😉
There is a cuff option for the sleeves that I absolutely adore! Digging up these pictures again has me convinced I need to make another brighter version for spring.
