One of my favourite garments out of the Love At First Stitch book is the Megan dress. It’s easy to make and it fits me without having to alter anything!
I made two Megans a few months ago, both from thicker fabrics though so they aren’t really suitable for the Summer weather. The first one I made was far too short as a dress so I wear it with skinny jeans. The second one is lovely but has a pucker on the zip and the skirt and bodice didn’t match up so it has an extra pleat.
I had put a cotton Megan on my to make list and finally got around to making it last week. This was my third dress of the week too! When cutting the fabric, I decided that I would like a sleeveless version. I wasn’t quite sure if this would work so I made sure I had just enough fabric for sleeves just incase!
Even though I had traced & cut the Megan pattern before…I had lost it so had to re-trace & cut. This prompted me to label all my traced patterns and put all of them in a place where I know they are. During the tracing process, I also realised that I had traced one of the darts too narrow last time – I had followed the wrong line! This would have been why the skirt and bodice didn’t match! It was an ‘ah-haaa!’ moment!
