Its time for a some more dressmaking. Coco is a Tilly and Buttons pattern which gives you the choice to make a top or dress with a long or three quarter length sleeves and a rolled cuff option. The neck line could be a simple round neck or maybe try the optional sixties style funnel roll neck.
This course is suitable for confident beginners.
We will provide you with your own copy of the Tilly and Buttons pattern, help you with the measurements, selecting and cutting out the pattern pieces and laying them out on your chosen fabric.
You will need to bring a medium weight knit fabric with very little stretch. Too much stretch will mean it is much harder to cut and sew together so check that the feel of the fabric is not too fine or too stretchy.
Your will need to bring:
Dress with Funnel neck & cuffs - 2.3m (2 1/2 yrds) x 150cm (60 inches) or 3m (3 1/4 yrds) x 115cm (45 inches)
Plain dress - 2m (2 1/4 yrds) x 150cm (60 inches) or 2.7m (3 yrds) x 115cm (45 inches)
