I Made A Dress!

Moneta dress 
Over the weekend I cut out and made this dress!  The pattern is the Moneta Dress by Colette Patterns and I made it in a rayon jersey knit (super soft!).  I made the 3/4 sleeve version (which actually hits at the elbow, but the pattern calls it 3/4 sleeve) because the dark floral looked more fall and winter to me than summer.  I think the narrow sleeve will also work well if I throw a cardigan over the dress also.  I hate having bunchy sleeves inside my cardigans, but I don't think I'll have a problem with this dress.

I love the way the dress came out!  I made the Small size with no adjustments or alterations and it fits perfectly.  I will definitely be making a few more of these.  Did I mention the dress has pockets?  It does!

I was also able to use my new coverstitch machine to hem the dress (neck, sleeves, and lower hem).  It was my first time using it and it worked really well!  I love how professional it makes those hems look.  I hope to be sewing a lot more knits now that I have it, in fact I might be cutting some things out later today!
