What is a ‘Coco’ ?It is of course the famous pattern for knit fabrics designed by Tilly
from Tilly and the Buttons. blog.
To try out the pattern I used a piece of fleece that I purchased very cheaply last year.
This way it would not matter if I made a mistake
and I decided it would make a great ‘loungewear’ top, for lounging around the house!
It is a very easy and very quick pattern to cut out and sew.
Tilly provides simple and clear instructions.
I had help as usual….
She even tried to make a nest on the fleece…cheeky!
As I was taking an ‘almost finished’ photo, she was more than happy to be included…
I couldn’t help adding a label…
So here is my first attempt…
a trial garment.
It was such fun using the self timer….the dog thought I was playing with him, all that running around!
I recommend this to all of you!
Some notes on Coco.
Next time I plan on making the longer ‘dress’ length version and will wear it as a tunic.
I love the funnel neck, but will make it slightly wider, so it has more of a turnover.
Thinking of adding two large pockets to this fleece version later.
