Sewing Coco the autumnal dress version…
I see you here, I see you there, I see Coco’s everywhere…
They are however, so perfect for Autumn especially when sewn in a cosy knitted fabric.
I saw on instagram that Tilly and the buttons has a new pattern in the printing…I wonder what it will be called?
Its probably safe to bet on something with a french twist!
Back to Coco, this is my number 5….
I will be wearing it more as a dress and less as a tunic, think thick opaque tights and wedge ankle boots?
I used a knitted fabric, it frayed tiny bits everywhere, I had to hoover my rug twice!
My trusty overlocker worked over time ….
The clever matching of the stripes is purely coincidental!
I am ridiculously pleased with my few hours work
I can’t wait to wear it and when I do, I will share the pics on here later.
In case you were wondering here are my coco’s 1, 2, 3 and 4!
Bestest sewing wishes to you today…
Ps. The fabric in the yellow picture is a vintage ‘pussy willow’ barkcloth in the blue colourway, my toh. painted an old frame …it lives in my sewing room…you can see more here
