Coco – Tilly and the Buttons

A review of Tilly and the Buttons Coco Top and Dress

Reviewed by TheFlyingNeedle on 23rd July, 2017

Coco is a great beginners dress to sew – straightforward, but if you choose the option with the collar, you get a special “60ies” twist! Easy to guess, I chose to make the collar and add the sleeve cuffs. The pattern also offers a collar-less version as well as sleeves without cuffs. And there also is a sweater version. I chose ponte di roma for my dress. It gives the shape a little more stability than “normal” jersey, and it’s so much easier to sew because it doesn’t curl up on you!

I love, love, love Coco, and have made the dress twice and the sweater once. If you have half a day, this is the perfect project! You can find more pics of my Coco dress on my blog at!
