Spot the new Moneta….

img_0195 How can you not jump for joy in a former Italian abbey?

It’s no secret that I love Moneta, and it’s quickly become a regular sew, especially since I discovered that I can get a dress out of just one metre of fabric with a bit of wiggling. So it was no surprise that when I spotted some polka dot fabric on a trip to the rag market hosted by Rach that I quickly snapped some up ready for a light and breezy summer dress.

What is it?

A sleeveless jersey dress with a fitted bodice and gathered skirt

Is it blue?

Yup yup yup!

What’s the fabric and where’s it from?

A thin lightweight jersey from an outdoor stall at the rag market; it was a bargain too, costing only £1.50!

What’s the pattern?

The Colette Moneta (again!)

Seriously, the view from this place was amazing!

What was good about making this?

As ever just the speed at which I could get it sewn up was a delight

What was bad about making this?

The fabric was printed ever so slightly squiffy which meant cutting out pieces so that they would line up was a bit of a nightmare. Luckily it’s nothing that couldn’t be sorted with a quick application of some scissors!

Would you make it again?

I wouldn’t say never, although now that we’re moving into autumn I might look to make a few more sleeved versions of the dress. That said, I have a freaking huge list of to-be-mades at the moment so unless it’s a truly truly fabulous print I think it’ll be a while before I make another.
