My First Cocos

Friday, May 17, 2019
I have had the Tilly and the Buttons Coco Pattern in my stash for ages and it's often one of the first patterns people recommend for beginner sewists, but it's only recently that I decided to stitch it up.

I know that I've chosen the right fabric/ pattern combination when I show my husband my finished pieces and he says "Those are classic Sarah makes!"

I used Ponte de Roma fabric from and stitched up a size 5 according to my measurements for both the shirt and dress versions. The only alteration that I did was that I stitched the side seams of my dress at 3/8" instead of 5/8" to give myself a little bit more wiggle room.

Both the dress and the shirt are comfortable and fit really well, but I feel like the dress makes me look a bit wider than I really am when worn on its own, so it'll mostly get worn under cardigans and coats.

Overall, I love this pattern and can see myself sewing many more of these in the future.
