Stewie Moneta

Heya. Today I'd like to return to a deeply loved pattern I haven't sewn in a while. The Moneta. This time it's in a fun Stewie Griffin print jersey that looks fun and carefree at first but true to Stewie's personality is filled with messages he would say.

Again, I sewed up size M with no alterations apart from shortening the skirt. All the seams are finished with the overlocker. the hem and sleeve hems are finished with twin needle. I sewed a strip of fabric to the neckline while slightly stretching the band and it gave me a nice finished neckline with a neckline band. I added an elastic silicone strip to the shoulder and waist seams for stability.

Other than that I have nothing to say except I love this dress, but you all already knew that because it's a Moneta and it has awesome print.

The fabric is from a remnant bin in Abakhan and it's so freakin' awesome, I could cry. I actually bought it with the idea of making a shirt or two for Mr.Man but that didn't happen and the fabric had been sitting in my stash for almost a year. But then we were going to see the latest Star Wars movie and I felt that I absolutely needed to make this fabric into a dress so I could wear it to the movies. With two hours left until the end of the work day and until I had to leave home for the cinema, I pulled out the fabric and was done with plenty of time left. Aaaaaaaaah, the joys of TNT patterns. They whip up so fast.
