Coco Session

Stretch Dress/Top

10am to 4:30pm
  • LEEDS ONLY
  • Saturday, 13th May

What to expect...

10am to 4:30pm - Sewing Sessions Studio - 40 Rock Lane - £49

We will spend the day making the Tilly & the Buttons famous Coco Top/Dress. The Coco is the perfect Breton top or knit dress with lots of different variations.

No closures make it easy to pull it on and go!.. its a great way to learn how to handle stretch fabrics and we will teach you lots of tips and tricks to get the perfect fit and finish.

The Coco Top is a great, easy wearing staple. It looks fab for spring and summer in lightweight jerseys or cosy knits to keep you warm in winter. Make it your own with optional sixties funnel roll neck, and rolled cuffs and patch pockets.

You will need to purchase the Coco Pattern from Tilly and the Buttons prior to the session. (details will be send upon booking)

You will also need to bring your own fabric - between 1.5m to 2m depending on the length, style and size you choose (exact details will be sent to you on booking)

You will also need to cut your pattern from your fabric before you arrive at the session, so you will need to have cut out a pattern before. Don't worry, its not as scary as it sounds as full step by step instructions will be sent to you on your confirmation.

For inspiration and ideas on choosing your fabric, you can see other Coco's Here!

You leave the session at the end of the day with a beautiful dress or top... handmade by you!

Is this session for me?... This is a great session for people who have completed the pattern fitting session, any 'make a...' sessions or if you have sewn items before, from non-stretchy fabric or would like to learn stretch fabric.
