hi everyone! it’s the moneta party this weekend, yay! can you believe it?! abigail elle and i started talking about this almost 9 months ago so for the time to be here is so exciting! in preparation, i thought i would show off all (well, most!) of the monetas i’ve made! i know i’ve got two more somewhere. i just don’t know where they are… i’ll blame the house move!
hi all! hope everyone is enjoying the unexpected october sunshine. this sunshine makes today’s make look a little silly because it’s very much an autumn/winter dress. also i realise you can see the reflection of all my washing in the window behind me. well at least if my mom reads this she’ll see that i do actually put washing outside, haha. it’s an astoria jumper with a moneta attached. AND
moneta; i like this dress sans sleeves. i’ve made the colette moneta a million times (okay maybe 8 times), and each time i like it more and more. it was the dress that ignited my love for jersey, which i have probably mentioned before. this one is made in a light weight jersey that i got from girl charlee uk. it was in the sale and i had a voucher
hi everyone! a few weeks ago (maybe only two, but time feels slow sometimes!) colette posted a picture on instagram where they were doing the moneta and wren dress for 20% off. the picture of the moneta was a beautiful mustard colour and i fell in love. and i fell hard. i stopped myself buying mustard fabric on ebay, deciding i would look for the perfect fabric when i went
THE SILENCE IS OVER. i’m yabbering on about an ACTUAL garment i’ve made; i’m as blown away as you are! i posted a little while ago about not feeling much like making clothes. a combination of a lack of time (which hasn’t stopped me in the past) a lack of inspiration (although i’ve got some nice fabric waiting to be used!) and just a lack of willpower.
hiii everyone. well, my week off work is finished, and so ends my dedicated week of making. if you follow me on instagram (my username is rach_wain, here’s a link, follow me if you would like to!) you might have seen my post about trying to make one thing a day while i’ve been off… well. i can’t stay that i stuck to it! i made four things, which
bonjour everyone! today i present to you my favourite example of pattern placement to date; my 3rd moneta! i made this dress last weekend when we went to visit my boyfriend’s grandparents. i’d told his grandma about my overlocker and she asked me to take it with me for a sewing lesson, best ever! it’s safe to say, she now wants an overlocker!
hi everyone! after my success of the first moneta i made the other day, i thought i would make another one! it’s the first pattern i’ve done that with so far. probably because it’s so quick to make! this time i chose a lighter knit fabric from ebay. the quality isn’t wonderful, but what did i expect for 3 metres for £11 eh. my thread was cheap too.
bonjour everyone! i’ve been quite for a couple of weeks, my hayfever is killing me and after 8 hours struggling at work i just don’t feel like doing much when i get home. however, after seeing all the pretty moneta dresses popping up every where, i needed to make one for myself. here it is! i got the fabric from calico laine, i
