This product is unavailable
Moneta is your new go-to dress pattern. Built for both elegance and comfort, this simple knit dress works in every season and for any occasion.
Made with knit fabric, this dress can be created in a matter of hours. With minimal pressing and just a few pattern pieces, you'll be whipping up an army of these wardrobe workhorses. Moneta is easy to make, and easy to wear. This dress is versatile, layerable, and above all, comfortable. Because Moneta feels as good as it looks, you will get a lot of wear out of these dresses.
All three styles of Moneta dresses have a gently curved, wide neckline, a fitted bodice, and a shirred skirt with in-seam pockets. Version 1 is a sleeveless dress with a lined bodice and narrow round collar that laps at the center back. Version 2 has an unlined bodice and short sleeves, while version 3 has an unlined bodice and 3/4-length sleeves.
A free e-booklet called 'Moneta Extras' can be downloaded from Colette's website. This booklet includes patterns and instructions for five additional collar variations you can use for the Moneta dress. Combine these with any of Moneta's three sleeve variations, and you have over 20 different ways to make one dress!
Multi-sized pattern from size XS to 3XL.
