Coco Session

Stretch Dress/Top Evening Session

(sessions are 4 weeks from date below, not including bank holiday Monday)
  • LEEDS ONLY
  • Monday, 16th April

What to expect...

Evening Sessions are 7pm to 9pm.

We will spend the 4 weeks 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, 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 cut your pattern and 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)

Once you have booked on, a detailed video of how to choose your size and cut out your fabric will be emailed to you.

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

You leave the session at the end of the 4 weeks 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 Beginners Sewing Session and would like to learn to make clothes. If you have sewn items before, from non-stretchy fabric or would like to learn either stretch fabric or to make clothes and learn pattern fitting techniques.
