Easter Dress

Oh my goodness, can I just tell you all how much I love this new pattern!
Colette Patterns hits a home run on my scoreboard.
The Moneta is a simple, but essential wardrobe builder.

I did not make a muslin because I didn't decide until Friday which dress I would make for Easter.
So, with limited time, I opted to just sew this one up right out of the envelope,
or off the computer as the case may be (I purchased the digital version).

The fit is very good.  I cut a straight size medium, but I added
3" to the length and 1" to the sleeve length.
There is, however, one small issue - the front neckline gapes just a bit.
Not a pattern flaw, but a physical body flaw!
That will be an easy adjustment on my next go round.

I already planned to wear this scarf with the dress, before I even sewed it.
So, it all worked out.
Fabric:  Aqua solid by Riley Blake
May you all have a very blessed Resurrection Day, my friends.


  1. This is a super cute dress and I love it with the accessories. Great job. Also I think your arms look fine from a 40 yr. old perspective, LOL.
