Sew a Coco Dress or Top Workshop


Coco Dress or Top

During this workshop you will make a Tilly and the Buttons Coco Dress or Top. This is a cute, comfy knit dress or top and is a lovely garment.

This pattern is suitable for a confident beginner sewers / anyone who is able to sew a straight stitch but who wishes to learn to sew with a jersey knit fabric.

The pattern suggests using a medium-weight knit fabric with a little stretch, such as ponte di roma, double kit or interlock.  The boat neck top also works well in low stretch jersey.

What you will need for this workshop:
- Between 1.5-3 metres of fabric depending on the width of your fabric, whether you make a top or a dress and the size you are wanting to make. 

If you are unsure what size you are, we can help you measure yourself and advise on the type of fabrics required, but please do arrive 15minutes earlier than the start of the workshop or come to the shop on another day to allow for this.

You can bring along your own fabric or purchase fabric in the shop on the day of your course. All workshop attendees will receive a 10% discount on all fabrics bought and used in the workshop.  Please also note that the workshop cost includes the cost of the pattern, which you can take home with you after the class.

To attend this workshop we would expect you to be able to do some basic sewing.  If you are unable to sew but are interested in this sewing course, please sign up to a beginner sewing course first. If no dates are available, please do get in touch to discuss. Many thanks.

Please bring your own packed lunch.  Tea/coffee, water & cordial will be provided throughout the day.
