I was in desperate need of some basic stuff for my wardrobe so decided to add another Moneta to the collection.
The reason this dress is lazy is that I didn’t finish any of the seams on it, including neckline, hem and armhole. I think jersey can look really nice with raw edges and sometimes a stitched hem ruins the look a bit. Especially when you’re having to work with a stretch stitch on a sewing machine… I might end up finishing the armholes – haven’t quite decided yet.
The fabric was this truly awesome poly cotton rib jersey from Stof 2000 which is a circular-knit (or whatever you call it). I bought 2.5m and managed to squeeze a Moneta and almost a whole Linden sweatshirt our of it. It’s nice and thick which is not only brilliant for the cold summer we’re having, but I imagine I’ll be able to wear it this autumn paired with some nice leggings as well.
And, finally – a call out. Can you please share with me your favourite woven top patterns?I’ve got some fabric that I really want to use for tops and I’m thinking simple sleeveless or t-shirt tops. I’ve beens scouring pattern companies pages but am finding it difficult to get inspiration. I want to see what you guys have made!
