A Moneta in San Francisco
Miss Crayola Creepy 12:41 PM Completed project
When I wrote about my first version of Moneta I didn't realize that it was my new favorite dress pattern. After making the dress a second time it all became very clear, it's official: I'm in love.
My Pucci inspired Moneta was technically a wearable muslin and when it was done I knew that it needed a few tweaks for it to fit the way I wanted. For round two I took in the center neckline by 1/4 inch, shortened the bodice by 1 inch, and added 2 inches to the length. My twin needle even played nice for me and didn't have much tunneling :)
This probably isn't the most exciting make for you guys, but I assure you that it will get a lot of wear. Every girl needs a black jersey dress right? Oooh, I wonder if I should stop referring to myself as a girl, I'm turning 30 this Friday. Is it time to start calling myself a "lady" now?
Back to the dress, I am really into wearing all black again. Throughout my life I go through phases of wearing all black just because I think it is a classy look, not to make any particular statement. For whatever reason it really bothers some people to the point that they have to comment on it. Like, really bothers. Why just a few weeks ago I was called "gothic," but the most memorable comment was from a former dorm mate in college. She said, "I can tell by the way you dress and what music you listen to that you do drugs." L...O...L. Does anyone else get hated on for wearing all black or is it just me?
These photos were taken at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco this weekend. I'm afraid that I don't know a thing about it, it was across the street from the hotel we stayed at and I thought it would be a cool spot for photos. In my next post I'm going to share some photos of the fabric stores I went to :) And surprise surprise, I got fabric for another Moneta.
