Colette Moneta Dress

I resisted getting this pattern for a long time, glad I finally broke down and purchased it. It is super easy and fits great! I liked this dress so much that I cut out another one and sewed that up right away. This version is about five inches longer in the skirt, must have the longer skirt for winter.

The fabric was purchased from Vogue Fabrics when they came to Bloomington, MN this fall.

Got my copy of Threads, all ready to go.

McCall's 7242

Phyllis Diller just called and she wants her hair back. Ha!

This is one of those dresses that took a long time to sew and it's just okay. I used corduroy and I think the fabric was too thick. The one thing I like is the flounce, I found a silk/velvet remnant and it coordinates really well. If you use this pattern and are busty beware, add darts if you can, or use a fabric with stretch it seems to run small.
