Well, well, look at what we have here. Could it be more TNTs (Tried ‘N’ Trues)? I’ve gone and made more Colette Monetas!
My fifth Moneta was actually completed during Me-Made-May but I was waiting to finish another one before posting so I would only bombard you with two at a time. Behold, Moneta #5 with brunette RED!
The fabric is from… you guessed it… GirlCharlee.com. I think my fabric stash is a good 50% or more Girl Charlee fabrics. They just have the coolest prints! Oh yeah, and check out that pocket action. I know pockets in knit dresses/skirts isn’t the best idea (think poofy hips), but it helps out a lot at work when I have to carry random things around.
I never wear belts with my Monetas, but I do like how they look. Maybe I’ll start busting out my belts when the weather gets cooler. There is no way I’m going to put more layers on when it’s still hitting over 100 degrees!
And speaking of the weather getting cooler, in about another 2 months, I’ll be able to wear Moneta #6:
This is the first time I made the version with longer sleeves and I like it. The only problem is the sleeves end right where my elbows are, so they roll up a little. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a 3/4 length sleeve of a half-sleeve, but at least it keeps the guns warm. 🙂
I’m not quite sure how to properly pose with a tree, but I guess this will do. Oh, and check out my hair! It’s a little lighter now, yay! I’m really digging the blonde thing so I think I’ll keep it around for a while, much to the dismay of others (you know who you are…). :-p
Here’s a closer picture if you wanted to check out that cool print. This fabric/print is a little different than my usual style, but I’m liking it! I bought some more fabric similar to this so let the fun crazy patterns begin!
Random weeds found near the wash are always good for a photo op…
…especially when you’re hungry. (J/K, I didn’t really eat it…)
I have a lot more pictures of Moneta #6 than of #5 because DD and I had a little more time to dedicate to the photo shoot (10 minutes vs. 3). So I’ll just dump some “action” shots with belt included!
I am wondering why a flower is coming out of my bum…
Jumpy happy times!
So how many more Monetas do you think I will make? You know it has to be at least 2 more so I can finish my fun rhyme:
Five Moneta, Six Moneta
[Stay tuned for] Seven Moneta, more!
