Moneta in New york

I bought this black and grey Houndstooth fabric on a whim from one of my favorite shops, wanderlust fabrics almost a year ago. I stashed it of course like sooo many other yards of fabric I've bought,waiting for inspiration to hit and tell me what to do with it.That time came in march shortly after I moved from Connecticut to New York city!. I was looking for a job and Fabric shopping had come to an end.I was soaking up tons of vintage and retro looks,watching black and white movies with the hubby and I thought the untouched Houndstooth and the Moneta dress I took so long to try would be the perfect pair.
I made it a bit more retro with the peter pan collar and I also added bucket pockets with contrasting trim. Overall I love the look of this dress and I understand why everyone loves the moneta pattern.
