Last week I became obsessed with a swing coat that I saw during a season 4 episode of Call The Midwife. I needed to make one! This was not a project that I am going into lightly so I’ve been using a lot of my free time researching this type of coat and planning to make one of my own. I’ve already ordered some swatches, but I can imagine this process taking a good amount of time so I wanted to document my findings.
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.
Ready for an odd story? On Valentines day I literally woke up covered in denim. I’ve been known to talk in my sleep and occasionally walk the house (my mom used to put up gates when I was a kid so I didn’t fall down the stairs) but I have never actually done anything other than walk around or tell really weird stories.
When I first started sewing I only knew of one place to buy patterns and fabrics, Joann Fabrics. As I’ve gotten more and more into the craft (and into Indie patterns) I’ve found a lot of alternatives to old faithful Joanns both IRL and online. Incase you find yourself in need of some fabric, here is a recap of everywhere I love to buy it from!
This is my fourth time making a Moneta and its the third one for myself. Between the two for me and the one I made for Emily, I’ve learned a bit more about knits and the pattern in general.
