Spent the weekend making two new dresses! I’ve been wanting to try this pattern (‘Moneta’ by @colettepatterns ) out properly for AGES, and with a few tweaks to the waist height, it fits like a glove! 💃🏻✨#moneta #colettepatterns #monetadress

Does anyone else also find it hard to motivate yourself to finish "neutral" clothes?
This dress has been scrunched up in a bag since the sewing weekender, last August! Sewing the bodice was as far as I got before, so I am pleased to finally have it finished...
Fabric has a quilted texture (swipe to see it in more detail 😊), which I purchased from Barry's fabrics in Birmingham. Pattern is @colettepatterns #monetadress! Definitely debut this at work this week 🤓

Finished another #wrendress #colettepatterns Looks better on! Such a quick make but I definitely need to lengthen the bodice more than my usual 2 inches! #getitrightnexttime #stilllikeit

Day 5 of Fashion Revolution Week- One Man's Trash :: growing up I lived in vintage clothing and my closet looked like a vintage clothing store. As sewing took over I thrifted less and less, mostly because I never got the best fit in found goods. But one of my favorite vintage things to use in my sewing is fabric! These vintage drapes were tossed aside by their owner, only so I could buy them up and turn them into a dress for me! This is an older make, going back quite a few years, and it has absolutely seen #30wears. Pattern is the Peony Dress (with a modified skirt) from @colettepatterns and the fabric was bought at the sadly now closed thrift by the pound in the mission district in San Francisco. #colettepatterns #peonydress #colettepeony #imademyclothes #makersforfashionrev

I made it to the party! (waves frantically) my short sleeve below the knee #monetadress is made from faux lace doubleknit. I dropped the waist an inch. This was a fast and satisfying sew. #monetaparty #moneta #colettepatterns #sewcialists @rach_wain @sewabigail @sewpositivity @colettepatterns

Je ne sais pas résister à un beau décolleté. 💙✂️💙/🇬🇧 Can't resist to a great neckline. 💙✂️💙 #teeshirtwanted #monetadress #vanessapouzet #colettepatterns

Ruby's 2nd birthday party at Tatnall Square. I'm happier than I look in my Moneta dress. Still a bit big on me, but thank goodness it's knit! #moneta #colettepatterns #memade #sew #sewing

I was at a sewing retreat yesterday 😍. Finished a jacket and a pair of shorts and made a self drafted top. So happy to have started my sewing plan for the summer! 😄#colettepatterns #irisshorts #burdastyle #imakemyownclothes #memadewardrobe

Little pleats in place of a sleeve on my #colettelaurel blouse. I don't have any bias tape so this is at far as I'll get today. #colettepatterns #sewing #threadandale. •••

I've been dreaming of pleats like this since I saw Paris Geller's pink coat in Gilmore Girls: a year in the life. #gilmoregirls

Day 7 of #makersforfashrev is about how small changes can make big differences. There are several areas where I can make positive changes. First, I am going to commit to more mending and to spot cleaning when a full wash isn't necessary. This will help the clothes that my family owns now last longer. Second, I'm going to embrace my slowness and make sure that I am finishing my garments to the best of my ability & making clothes that fit my lifestyle and that will be worn and loved. To that end, I need to revisit the #colettepatterns #wardrobearchitect to help plan future makes. Third, I can sew from my current fabric stash and choose more ethically/sustainably sourced fabric for future purchases. Fourth, I will check what is leaving our closets and make sure that it can't be repurposed/refashioned before it's donated. And finally, I'll continue to seek out used clothing sources for my children's clothing. (I do enjoy making special occasion garments for them, but I'm too slow to complete entire wardrobes.)

Celebrating my first "me make" in a while by sewing in one of these awesome #sublimestitching labels (a gift from my mother-in-law). Surprisingly, there was actually very little swearing involved in making this skirt. Love the colorful binding inside - it's my own little secret.

First summer dress of the season. Not my usual pattern choice but should be good for the summer hols.

Nancy is finished. Well, except for the hook and eye because I can't remember where I put them! #sewing #sewersofinstagram #sewistsofinstagram #colettepatterns #imakemyownclothes

Having a very productive weekend! Second #moneta dress, this time with happy whales 🐳 all over. Super happy with the pattern, only slight mod (in both dress 1 and 2) was to ease about 1 inch of length into the front of the bodice as a sort-of FBA. Now I have two new dresses (that feel satisfyingly like pyjamas) to wear! #dress #sewing #seamstresslife #colettepatterns #monetadress

I have fallen in love with this pattern - so much that this is the 5th one. It definitely won't be the last. This is headed straight for my suitcase - I have another #moneta I sewed up for this trip as well. Flight is Monday and I have 4 more projects to finish. It's been a hectic month and to top it off I've been sick this week so my sewing was put on hold.
Pattern: Moneta by @colettepatterns
Fabric: @fabriclandcanada
