Retro Vibes Coco Dress – Tilly and the Buttons

Coco dress 4.0

This past winter I caught a bit of the Coco bug. It’s an easy super quick make – I totally blame SewChet for her beautiful stag print Coco <link here> which reminded me of the versatility of this pattern :-).

I have had this quilted ponte for a long while now (bought from Jacks Fabrics in Leeds Market) and its one I had set aside on the “sew or donate within 1 month” pile. Luckily it got sewn. The thing with this fabric is that it’s a workhorse – I have made my girls sweater dresses <link here> and they got washed loads over the 15 months my girls wore them. Despite all the laundering the fabric didn’t bobble or pil horribly so I knew that this will be a good workhorse dress.

To add to the sixties vibe I was getting off the fabric I interfaced the collar band so it would stand tall and proud in a contrasting black ponte.

I have much love for this dress and its been worn loads this past winter.

Verdict: I likey – a lot. Comfy, warm and makes me feel stylish 🙂 Just like my other Coco dress too.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the interwebs. Until next time – happy sewing all!

Peace and love,

Hila

  1. Thanks for the link! Yep, another Coco success story. I love the higher neckline on you and may have to try one like that. Not sure my figure could take a high neck though as I’m the opposite of tall and slim:)

  2. Too bad, there is no “love” button here, to press… 😉
    Great, now I want this pattern! Is the collar included in the pattern and the instructions or you added it? I have a beautiful wool fabric and I was searching a pattern like this. Can this be made from a non-stretchy fabric?
    You do look very stylish btw!
