Pink Roses on Black Scuba Fabric: Moneta Dress
Posted in Projects on Monday the 26th November 2018 by Vicki Ormerod
I made my first Moneta last year to join a Moneta instagram party. I hacked it a little bit as I created a button down opening at the front - perfect for nursing. There is a step by step instructions on my blog on how I made the front opening, which you can find here. Next on my Moneta dress list is this springy floral one, again with the nursing friendly opening at the front.
Let's jump onto my new Moneta which I love! It is perfect for my Fall wardrobe and this Scuba Fabric feels really snuggly.
The sewing pattern requires 2 meters of knit fabric. I asked for 3 meters of this beauty from Vicki at Minerva, as I planned to make seperates. I planned to make a Bibi skirt by Tilly and the Buttons (from her latest book "Stretch") and a Inari Crop Tee by Named Clothing. But the plans changed. I decided to make a Moneta dress as I have already got a lot of wear out of my other Monetas. That was the perfect choice for me. I still have a leftover fabric for an Inari crop top tee! Yay!
The fabric has black background with these beautiful burgandy, dusty pink and wine red flowers. Such a chic fabric design.
I made View 2. That was the first time for me working with a scuba fabric and I was quite afraid of it! Trust me guys, it is easier than I thought. I didn't have any issue cutting the scuba faric nor sewing it. I cut it using a rottary cutter while stabilised it with pattern weights. I used a small zic - zac stitch for the entire garment. To secure the side stitches and make them look neater, I stiched them down flat, close to the side seams.
Love the colour palette that my new Moneta dress has. The floral pattern on the fabric is amazing! Pairing it with my Mona jacket by Wear Lemonade, seems to look like the perfect match for Fall! *heart eyes* What do you think? Let me know!
Thanks for reading!
