Here it is, my latest make for White Tree Fabrics and a super cosy Coco dress for my Icelandic honeymoon! The pattern is the good old Tilly and the Buttons Coco dress , but this time I made it with a funnel neck and cuffs as previously I’ve only made the dress sweet and simple and thought it was about time I gave myself more of a challenge!
The fabric I used was the warm jersey in red ,which has a one-way stretch, meaning that it hugs around your body absolutely wonderfully. It also makes it very snuggly and the perfect material for that fold-down funnel neck! The fabric is £10.06 a metre but you’ll get 20% off with my discount code ‘SEWSENSATIONAL’, so it’s definitely worth doing that for a bit of a saving. I think I used 1.5m altogether for this dress, including the extra details and the pockets, as well as a reel of red thread.
I have to say that this dress was absolutely perfect for Iceland, where it frequented minus 10°c on more than one occasion. I love the red colour too – it’s so vibrant and very festive. It also matches the colour of my bridesmaids dresses which is a happy co-incidence! There’ll be a few images of both my wedding and my honeymoon popping up on the blog soon once I’ve had chance to edit so keep an eye out for those if you’re interested 🙂 In the meantime, here are some more pics of my 4th Coco!
