Moneta dress finished!

So I finally completed the Moneta. This is actually a muslin but a wearable one as it turns out.

 

My thoughts are :

 

I like it – its very comfortable to wear and looks great. It relatively easy to make until you get to the gathered skirt using clear elastic. It will probably be a few more trys at it before I can do that without ‘WTF’ etc.

Will definitely be making it again. Next time with new overlocker!

Linen trousers! Loved making these. the instructions were soo easy peesy lemon squeezy to follow. I didn’t put the pockets on it because well my six month old twins don’t need them 😉

The best bit for me was meeting the new love of my sewing life – the French seam!!!! I seriously love this way of neatening seams plus it so much easier to do than the zigzag stitch PLUS so much more neater and professional looking.

Right now I am doing a few knit fabric project so wont be using the Frenchie but I am really excited about using on my next woven project.

They say practice makes perfect…… I wouldn’t agree with perfect bit but it certainly does improve technique.

My second go at making these cute dresses for my girls went faster and looked better as well. The first ones were okay but…compare with these ones. I am well proud of this effort.

They are reversible too 😉
