A pleated Moneta

The Colette Moneta is one of my favorite patterns.  I've made a couple before, but I apparently only blogged about one so far.

I decided instead of gathering the skirt for this Moneta, I would try using pleats.  I put two pleats in the front and two in the back.

The busy print of this fabric makes it hard to see the pleats.  But I like the subtle difference it makes from the other Monetas I've made.

I also lined the bodice with self fabric.  I like lining the Moneta bodice because it makes for a clean neckline and I don't have to worry as much about what color bra I'm wearing.

I will likely end up doing this variation again, just so I don't end up having too many dresses that are exactly the same.
