I have now made 4 versions of the Coco top/dress. The dress (above) is for casual weekend slouching (!) but the two tops are worn for work with skinny black trousers. The third top is a bolder print and a more going-out number!
I love this easy to sew pattern for these reasons:
1. flattering elegant neckline
2. fitted but gently flared at the hem for a flattering fit on the body
A late summer 3/4 length sleeve top using jersey pieces from my stash!
This is from Tilly's book 'Stretch' and is a great casual top that is semi fitted a bit like the Coco pattern. This one has a higher neckline with separate neckband though and raglan sleeves.
For some reason I got my stripes uneven when making this so had to do a lot of unpicking before getting this right. Unpicking stretch stitch on jersey is very frustrating!! Named necklace is Tatty Devine btw!
