My first Coco by Tilly and the Buttons

What can I say? I love this pattern plus it was my first overlocker project. Overlocker was scary at first but I quickly got the hang of it šŸ˜‰

I cut a size 4 as per measurements and sewed it up. Twas too baggy for my liking so I took about an inch out on both side seams.

Turned out just right. ANd because I was too lazy to bring out my sewing machine and thread a twin needle to finish the hems and neckline I just overlocked them! et voila! A perfectly wearable dress in an hour and half of starting!

NB I really need to pay more attention when cutting out stripes because they aren’t straight on this dress but …eh.
