Moneta Part dos


So apparently the theme of my summer is making two of everything! This is my second version of the Colette Moneta, and I limey this one! I made this from a striped knit I found at a store in Phoenix while visiting my sister in law, as well as a heavier weight eggplant knit from Joanns. This is a nice simple little pattern, I really like how the sleeves on this come together, you adjust the width of the sleeve after attaching them to the bodice. This is nice if you want them a little more roomy/less roomy, etc..

This pattern is clearly meant for knits! (As is they didn’t advertise the hell out of it as a knit dress, along with a book on how to work with knits!) I love knits, and the fact that this dress requires no fuss or battle with darts and boob placement, zippers, buttonholes, etc.. It really appeals to the lazy sewer in me!

The knit fabric on the bottom is a bit bulky, but I really don’t mind it with the gathers too much. It helps hide a rounder tummy if you know what I mean. I certainly see more Monetas in my future, but I do have other projects on my agenda including an entry for the state fair. Ohhh what to make?? This is the first year I have entered a garment and I am really thinking about a shirt dress as I love making them and I think the difficulty level is right on par for State Fair standards 😉  Will report back soon!!

    Your is my favorite Moneta yet. You see, I actually thought it was a bit boring of a dress or rather everyone has one but this one is really different with the half and half look . It’s so cute!
