Happy Friday! I just wanted to pop by to share my latest handmade top.
The pattern used to make this cute top is Tilly's (of Tilly and the Buttons) "Coco" pattern. It is 100% absolutely fantastic. She has put so much care and time into it, and it shows. Because she lives in the UK, I opted for the PDF version of the pattern (even though the print version is so pretty).
Piecing together the PDF pattern was a little time consuming, but even that was taken into consideration. Each page is marked to easily indicate where it should be attached. The garment itself was very easy to sew, taking only one afternoon!
The pattern is to be used with interlock, ponte, and double knits. I cheated a bit, using some fabric I already had on hand. Straying from recommended fabric can go very wrong, but luckily this still turned out just fine. I do plan on making the dress and Sixties versions (though I can't decide which I want to do first!) using Ponte de Roma.
You can check out some other finished Coco projects by searching the #sewingcoco hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.
Ad be sure to check out Tilly's blog for more patterns and lots of sewing tips and tutorials.
