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 😉

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.

  1. I love the dress, it looks great! I love the stripy material too 🙂 isn’t that book amazing?! I am working through it and just up to the Megan dress – can’t wait to finish it 🙂


  2. This looks super-fine! Great job there!
    I have got this pattern but yet to make one due to the fact I have no knit fabric suitable in my stash – will have to wait until October to make one ; )
