Christmas Moneta

Oh how I hate sewing the moneta! That waistband elastic drives me mad but I love love wearing them.

I wear my white polka dot one on a regular basis and every time I wear it I think I need another! I’ve had some stretch lace in my stash for a while and when I was thinking about making a Christmas dress for our work do it popped into my head.

I had some blue jersey leftovers from a dress I made for a friend and they were a perfect colour match. I had scraps left of that jersey when I was done – gotta love scrap busting.

The lace has a scalloped edge which means no hemming the sleeves or the skirt! Yaaaaas. Therefore the dress came together really quickly. I had to fight my overlocker through the thick layers of jersey around the waist but other than that (and the elastic application which I had to do twice) it was an easy and quick make.

I originally wanted to have some lace without lining on the bodice but I thought it would look messy so I overlocked the layers together and turned under.
