Colette Moneta - Front view

Initially, I basted the shirred skirt to the bodice and decided that look didn't suit me, so removed the elastic and changed the skirt shape to an A-line instead.

The tie keeps unravelling, so I might handstitch the knot down to control it.


The fabric looked pretty and fabulous on the shop shelf but when I washed it - (I wished I'd bought the Colette guide to knits beforehand *sigh*) it showed its true colours and was unpleasant to sew with and stretched out excessively in the pocket area.
