Tilly and the Buttons Sewing Pattern - Coco
Fill your wardrobe with classic Breton tops, cosy knit dresses and sixties-style funnel necks - all from the same pattern and no overlocker or serger required! Choose from top or dress length, boat neckline or funnel roll neck, long or three quarter sleeves with optional rolled cuffs and patch pockets.
Fabric suggestions: Medium weight knit fabric with very little stretch. Look out for French terry, double knit, ponte di roma, or feel the fabric to check it’s not too fine or stretchy.
