When this pattern was first released I was like “eh, whatever, whats so great about a knit skirt?” I bought Moneta as soon as it was released and didn’t think anything of that other knit pattern released by Colette.
I really wanted to make a new something for Thanksgiving this year and had just about decided on the Bronte Top when my Nana gave me a vintage pattern for a knit dress with a super wide funnel neck.
Let me introduce you to Emily, the super sweet girlfriend of my former co-worker Kris. When he asked me to make her a dress as a surprise I was absolutely on board! But, how could I make her a dress in secret with little to no measurements? Well, we got creative.
I put a lot of thought into which pattern to use for One Week One Pattern and I’m so happy with my choice! Here is a recap of my week in Coco.
I’ve been wanting to make my goddaughter Julia and I matching outfits basically since the day she was born and Coco was the perfect choice. Its a knit so its comfy whether your 2 (almost 3) or 25, and the style is timeless. The fabric I ordered to make them is a similar stripe to the shirt I was wearing when I first met Julia, when she was a mere 2 days old! I’m a tad sentimental when it comes to her.
