Giveaway! Megan Nielsen’s The Rie Dress Pattern!

Megan Nielsen is offering one lucky reader a PDF pattern of her beautiful The Rie Dress.
The Rie dress is a swing mini dress with a lace yoke. It is a loose fitting dress, that is free flowing from above the bust – which makes it unbelievably versatile. It can be belted, worn loose – and even makes great maternity wear.

The PDF document contains the full size pattern (covering sizes S – XL) which you can cut out and tape together, detailed instructions and large colour photographs of each step to help you construct the classic Rie dress, the Rie top or the Rie jersey dress – plus a guide for lengthening the dress if you desire.

Check out the pattern review on everywhere orange.

Megan is also offering 20% off her patterns with the code NOPANTS. You can use the code either in her main store or in her Etsy shop.
