The Moneta is a classic fitted bodice, gathered skirt dress, with a number of variations for different collars and sleeves. As if that weren’t great enough, it has in-seam pockets. I went with the sleeveless version 1, without the collar, and with a slightly more scooped out neckline (always with the low necklines, me…)
The beauty of this pattern is in the details. The technique for lining the bodice, the multiple ways to gather the skirt, and all the variations.
