Description

I’ve wanted a 60s-style sleeveless roll-neck dress for a while but didn’t have the right fabric for putting this together until last week. It’s made using the Coco pattern by “Tilly and the Buttons”: http://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/p/coco.html and some burgundy and grey ponte knit. I left the edges of the armholes and the pockets unfinished so it wouldn’t look too polished. More construction details and photos on my blog, “Lady Stitcher”: http://ladystitcher.wordpress.com/2014/04/19/coco-tilly-knit-sewing-dressmaking/

      I definitely recommend the pattern – it’s very quickly to sew.

      Thanks! It was a fun make and the fabric is the perfect weight for leaving unfinished.
