For this version I decided to go with short sleeves and simple bias tape neckline. I cut out a size 10 and the only modification I made was making the skirt shorter as I already knew based on my first Moneta that the skirt based on the pattern is a bit too long for me. Looking at the pictures now it feels like I should rise the waistline a bit but when I'm wearing it, it hasn't bothered me so...Not sure..Maybe on my next one.
When I started to work on the neckline I had a weird(lazy) idea not to sew the tape as it's meant to be sewn and I took an easier way. Instead of making a proper circle with the tape and then sewing it, I decided to fold it in half and make it overlap in the center. It looks a bit more interesting and it's quicker and easier. Hey, I was tired, no judgy stuff!
I went for pockets and well..No regret because hey, pockets! I luv me sum pockets. I serged all the seams together and used twin needle to hem the sleeves and bottom of dress. To stitch the neck binding down I used regular jersey needle as I didn't want the twin seam there complicating things.
Sooo...I have more ideas for more Monetas and I'm going to use it as my One Week One Pattern pattern and I can't wait for starting my next one..Thinking of butterflies..hmm..
What have you been up to? Do you think I should rise the waist by a few cm?
