It seems Colette Patterns want to get in on the knits fun too and, hey, the more the merrier! We are well-stocked up in the two new knits patterns from Colette – the Moneta Dress and the Mable Skirt. I think our wonderful Interlock Stripes and Interlock Solids will be brilliant for these patterns.

In addition to being Colette’s first patterns for knits, Moneta and Mable are the company’s first patterns available in plus sizes. These patterns range from XS – 3XL. Scroll on for pretty pictures or just pop to the shop!

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.

Mabel is a quick, easy, and versatile skirt pattern. It is also your perfect introduction to sewing with knits!

Mabel uses heavy knit fabrics so you get all the benefits of sewing with stable wovens along with the speed and comfort of sewing with knits. For the beginner, that translates into sure-fire results – you will successfully sew this skirt in one afternoon. And if you’re more experienced, you’ll take advantage of how fast this garment comes together and whip up several skirts in a day.

Colette Patterns Mabel Skirt
Because Mabel can be sewn up in three different styles, it’s a great wardrobe staple. Versions 1 and 2 are mid-thigh length skirts, ideal for warm spring and summer days or worn with a sweater and leggings in the winter. Version 2 is embellished with a faux placket and centre buttons. Version 3 is an above-the-knee length pencil skirt with seam details and a kick pleat. All three versions are pull-on style with a mid-rise, contoured waistband.
