Description

This baby rib knit dress was made using the new Moneta pattern by Colette Patterns. I found shirring the waist a bit tricky, but otherwise this was really quick to make. I love this bright red colour and the dress is so comfortable to wear; the fabric is the perfect weight for spring.

    I love your version! I’ve just completed two Moneta myself, I used one of the free extra collars. But I haven’t had time to take pics and post them yet. It’s such a great and versatile pattern!

      So funny :) – I just checked my favorite patterns – only 2 and I had to laugh… :) Without knowing that I have actually this as one of my favorites, I ordered the pattern some days ago and I’m now sewing exactly this dress :D I made my day hahaha :)
