I had every intention of making a second Moneta dress during the Colette sponsored sewalong in June. My fabric was prewashed, my pattern pieces adjusted, and clear elastic ordered, yet when it was time to cut I decided my fabric was not at all right for this dress. I got some super cute chevron from etsy and a piece of solid green to do a color blocked bottom and sleeve cuffs but as I started to cut I realized this fabric should not be a dress for me.
Colette patterns was on to something when they decided to call out the sewing world for its lack of knits knowledge. From reading the sneak peek into their book, The Colette Guide To Sewing Knits, I knew I had to order it and get knitting (just kidding, I can’t knit, my grandmother has tried to teach me on at least 3 separate occasions and it just won’t stick)!
