New: Japanese dressmaking fabrics


Also new in this week, lots of gorgeous Japanese fabrics, that I have found it very hard to share and not hoard all for myself. There are linens, double gauzes and cottons,  it's all enormously lovely and you can find it here.

Looking at the photos, you might ask, 'why the hand?' well someone once said it was useful to gauge an idea of the drape and scale of the print, and perhaps shows a slight reluctance on my part to let the fabric go. But the hand is not included with the fabric, sorry.




New in: the Moneta Dress pattern


Just arrived: the Moneta dress from Colette patterns.


Moneta is your new go-to dress pattern. Built for both elegance and comfort, this simple knit dress works in every season and for any occasion.

Made with knit fabric, this dress can be created in a matter of hours. With minimal pressing and just a few pattern pieces, you'll be whipping up an army of these wardrobe workhorses. Moneta is easy to make, and easy to wear. This dress is versatile, layerable, and above all, comfortable. Because Moneta feels as good as it looks, you will get a lot of wear out of these dresses. 


All three styles of Moneta dresses have a gently curved, wide neckline, a fitted bodice, and a shirred skirt with in-seam pockets. Version 1 is a sleeveless dress with a lined bodice and narrow round collar that laps at the center back. Version 2 has an unlined bodice and short sleeves, while version 3 has an unlined bodice and 3/4-length sleeves.
