I decided to use this red stripey fabric that I bought on one of our WSBN trips to Levana and the Moneta pattern that I've had sitting around for a while.
This is my second Moneta dress, I will blog about the first version I made sometime soon. The first version I made I didn't pay too much attention to the length of the bodice (which I usually do as I have quite a long torso) and it ended up being a baby doll dress, which isn't my normal style, but I can work with it.
This dress is all kinds of comfortable, I basically want a wardrobe full on stretch fabric dresses now. I need more stretch fabric in my stash (I mostly have woven fabric).
Plus it ALMOST looks like a grown ups dress - perhaps I can wear it to important meetings, if I have important meetings.
Hope you have all had good week so far - I'm off to search my stash for more stretch fabrics!
Ah, the hunt for the perfect belt, as illusive as a unicorn ;)
Jeez I was saying just that on Tuesday this week - maybe I should just sew knit coz this sleeve fitting is doing my head in! I do like this dress on you - the perfect belt and you're ready for every meeting not just the important ones :-)
That looks fab, a great fit (even if you don't feel it is!) and the colour really suits you. xxx
Love that dress, gorgeous colour and fabulous stripes! xxx
what a great dress! red and stripes and everything nice i like;)
oh yes i love stretchy fabrics too, but like you i almost only own woven fabrics.
So great! I love how easy knits are. Fitting is such a pain! Enjoy wearing it, and yes to finding a belt!
Love the colour on you! This is really cute. And I'm in awe of your selfie skills. You photograph so well!
