I had to make another Coco dress from Tilly and the Buttons. Such a great little pattern and wow, I love my new dress! Here is Tilly and her adorable pattern!
This fabric is from FabricMart and I recently was gifted a membership to Julie's picks....dangerous! My stash has multiplied like a whole slew of rabbits and I am challenging myself to sew 15 pieces from my stash before even looking at or considering any other fabric purchases. Do you have any idea how difficult this is for a junkie like me?
Anyway back onto what's important....
This was an instant gratification project, a perfect pattern for a new to knits seamstress as it the directions are all photographs of the work in progress and the written directions are easy to follow as well!
I made a straight up size 5 (Tilly's sizing is different than other patterns). Since this is my third go around, my modifications are the same:
1. 1/2" swayback adjustment
2. Elasticize the shoulder seams with clear elastic
I am hoping this dress will lend itself to the spring-like weather that should arrive in the next few weeks! I wanted 3 quarter length sleeves and love them! I debated on the funnel neck and this is such a fun little detail that I included it. I'm super happy with how my stripes match up on the side seams!
All in all, a great pattern, an easy gratification project, and these comfortable dresses are ME! I'm not done with this pattern yet....
Thanks for reading and I love hearing your remarks!
