Description

I made another dress, this time using the Moneta pattern from Colette! I planned to sew it in a bright red fabric, but I’ve changed my mind when I saw this bright and funny fabric.

You can see and know more of the dress on my blog : http://mpbymaude.blogspot.ca/2014/05/we-dont-read-and-write-poetry-because.html

    Hi Mauude, looks great! But about the elastic- did you sew it into the seam allowance or on the actual stitched seam? It usually sits better on the seam. If you’ve done that then it’s probably just bad elastic.

      Then it must be just a bad elastic because I sewed it into the seam allowance…

      I think the elastic is ok… unpick the elastic from the seam allowance, and sew it exactly on top of the straight stitched seam instead; stitched seam meaning, the seam that connects the skirt to the bodice. You will get a crisper gathering.

      Sorry for not being very clear before
