Colette Moneta; Swingy and Perfect

So I finished Moneta! I ended up having to take the waist up, not for any fitting issues, but because my knit fabric (sew classics jet set knit from joann’s) ending up getting a huge run in the bodice at the waist. I prefer a lower waistband, but didn’t feel like scrapping the whole project. So it ended up a bit more “baby doll” than I intended. As soon as I can get to the fabric store though, I intend on making another one! It’s seriously the perfect dress. Easy to dress up or down, flattering, and mega comfortable! 

Not too shabby right? Despite this fabric getting runs like crazy, I like the drape and hand feel a lot. The back has  a slightly deeper neckline, which I like, but am thinking about making it an even deeper U shape. 

Have you tried sewing up the Moneta? What’s your perfect dress?

    1. Thank you! It’s still very wearable, I just need to be careful with how far I’m stretching unseen knits ha!

  1. That’s so cute! I just finished my first Moneta and I had a bit of trouble getting the elastic waist band in too. But your end result looks great!

    1. Thanks! The waistband def was a bit of trial and error. I found the if I stretched it and pinned it a bit first it was easier. Like pinning the ends and then stretching it and pinning it where the middle fell. So I only had to working about keeping the tension right between the pins versus the whole garment.
