Back in November I rather failed to tell you about our new pattern designer Megan Nielsen. Shocking and criminal, I know. Well, we have just received in her new (and drop dead fantastic) Banksia Top pattern.
Megan Nielsen is an Australian fashion designer living in the US. She designs the most sweet and feminine clothes. Just in October last year, after seeing a gap in the market, she released a collection of seven maternity sewing patterns that she had perfected through her own pregnancies. This has been swiftly followed by two non-maternity patterns which have been taken from her Fall 2010 clothing collection.

The Darling Ranges dress is a button front v-neck dress with elbow length sleeves and gathered waistline. Includes large pockets (in my book a dress has got to have pockets) and ties at the back to allow it to be worn in a fitted or loose style.

Both dressy & casual the Banksia Top is a great wardrobe addition. Semi fitted with button up placket front, and large Peter Pan collar it also features elbow length sleeves and shaping darts at the bust line.
