There are pineapples on my dress.
|Apparently, I lost a finger on my right hand. I’m just that excited.|
Ahhhh, the joys of sewing. This is my first version of Moneta. And, there are pineapples on it. Did I mention that? Pineapples.
I’m about a million percent surprised at how well this came together. My twin needle behaved the entire time, which almost never happens. Maybe it was really excited about the pineapples, too. Clearly, I’m not…
Can’t you tell?
White is officially the worst color to photograph, though. Everything is so washed out! That belt is hot pink, and the pineapples are super bright. Whatever, you get the idea.
The only issue I ran into was with my serger (go figure). It kept flattening out the gathers as I attached the skirt. We figured it out in the end, and all is well. Translation: I chopped that shit off which shortened the bodice and the skirt so now I must wear a belt. Whatever, there are pineapples. I’ll be wearing this one for a while.
I’m a little unsure of the fitting on this one, too. I cut a size M for this, because the fabric has very little stretch. But, I have weird gaping in the overbust armscye area. Anyone else run into this issue? I have NO CLUE how to fix that shit. I tried sizing down (and used a stretchier, drapier fabric) and the weird gape-age was still there.
I have a huge pile of knits, and like 3 knit patterns, so I was really glad to add this to the arsenal. I won it as a prize for TMS indie pattern month, and Dresses & Me sent it to me from NZ. Thanks again Penny! She’s got an awesome online shop you should totally check out!
