There are many things about sewing that spark feelings of joy, like the satisfaction of making something with your own two hands, the power of self-expression, and the comfort of a daily creative ritual. Above all of that, there is an even bigger joy—the sewing community.
The online sewing community, especially on Instagram, makes it easy to join a worldwide network of other creative minds. It’s a great place to find new sewing friends, and that is why we’re so excited about the Moneta Party.
Didn’t get your invitation to the party yet? Read on!
Last year, a group of creative women sewed By Hand London’s Anna Dress for an Instagram sewing party. Everyone who joined the party made incredible dresses, and fellow partygoers voted for their favorites.
This year, the party is back, and we’re all sewing Moneta.
Meet Elle, Rachel, and Abigail—collectively The Triple Stitchers. They are our party hosts, and they’ve each sewn a bunch of different versions of Moneta—for the holidays, for work, and even for Abigail’s PhD graduation!
The Moneta Party starts now and runs until February 22nd. You have until then to sew your own version of Moneta and tag it on Instagram (#monetaparty) for a chance to win some amazing prizes, like a custom-printed Moneta dress from Sprout Patterns.
New prizes and special discounts will roll out over the next few weeks, so be sure to follow the party on Instagram.
Sew your own version of Moneta!
Tag your project on Instagram: #monetaparty
At the end of the party, the sponsors will narrow down the finalists, and you get to vote for the winners.
We can’t wait to see your Monetas!
You can download Moneta from our shop here.
The printed version of Moneta is currently sold out in our shop, but one of your favorite independent fabric stores might have a copy left. You can find a list of our stockists here.
We expect to have Moneta back in print within the next month.
Based on your feedback, we also made a small improvement to the curve of the armscye for the next printing of Moneta. This improvement will help you accurately match the seam allowances at the underarm. It is intended to improve the garment construction process, but does not affect the overall fit. The digital version of the pattern is updated. If you already own a copy of Moneta and you’d like to download the new bodice, click here.
