“Moneta” is the name given to this dress that you will be making in this class, the pattern was designed by Colette and is one of Charlotte Newlands favourites! It has a gently curved, wide neckline, a fitted bodice, and a shirred skirt with very practical in seam pockets. Version 1 is sleeveless dress with a lined bodice and a narrow round that laps at the centre back. Version 2 has an unlined bodice and short sleeves, while version 3 has an unlined bodice and 3/4 length sleeves. This very comfortable dress is one that you will find yourself making over and over again until your wardrobe is full!
