Strawberry fields

I have an ongoing obsession with Heather Ross’s fabrics. Aside from Liberty it’s about the only fabric I buy compulsively, scouring the four corners of the Internet to buy little scraps of discontinued perfection.

So when The Village Haberdashery announced on instagram that it had a roll of Heather Ross jersey I snapped up 3 metres of it without hesitation.

It’s been really busy for the past few weeks – lots of seeing friends and cultural activities being crammed into my normally desolate schedule in the lead up to my big Canada visit. But somehow in between three social engagements on the Sunday before I flew to Toronto I managed to bash out this Moneta dress.

This is my second Moneta. The first was made out of sweatshirting, and I used that as an excuse for why it is tight. But this one is also tight, so next time I’ll make a bigger size to have a slouchier fit. I altered the neckline into a scoop, but the dress gapes a bit at the front (despite its tightness everywhere else) so next time I’ll make the shoulders narrower.

So yes I did balance my phone in the branches of a tree to take this photo. Askew!

Howsoever, this dress is still great. I wore it all over Toronto to visit relatives last week and every one of them liked it. My Grannie wants one for her too! I think I might have enough fabric left to make her a boat neck top. But then my beautiful new little cousin ought to have something in this fabric, because she has a matching quilt (see next post)! Perhaps I’ll just need to get more fabric…
