So here they are:
Day 1 - Saturday
I love the colour of this Coco top, it is a lightweight merino, made up with the funnel roll neck and cuffs. As it was a Saturday it went very well with jeans.
Day 2 - Sunday (and another year older!)
|Navy Coco top with Deer & Doe Chardon skirt and ByHandLondon Victoria Blazer.|
Day 3 - Monday
|Black and white double knit jersey Coco|
This was my 'panic make' the week before OWOP. It is a lightweight doubleknit jersey from minervacrafts, again an ideal fabric for the Coco and very comfortable.
Day 4 - Tuesday
|Navy Coco under the Endless summer tunic|
Again the very versatile navy Coco worn as an autumn layer under the tunic dress. I haven't worn the dress with a top under it, might get a few more wears out of it before packing it away.
Day 5 - Wednesday
|Merino Coco with Anima pants|
Day 6 - Thursday
|Lilac Coco, pockets trimmed with Kaffe Fassett ribbon.|
|Pocket trim - Kaffe Fassett ribbon.|
This was the first Coco I made, I think, or was it the merino, not sure. I wish I had got the stripes joined to the red fabric a bit more even. I was still trying to get used to my overlocker and it was the first time trying it out to make a garment. Both fabrics are ponte roma jersey.
So there you are, a week of Coco's, 2 dresses and 3 tops, definitely a super pattern and depending on your weight of fabric can be great for all seasons, can be worn casual or dressed up more. The top (especially my navy one) can be worn on it's own, over a blouse or under a dress. It suits my lifestyle so what more do you want.
Coco, I hope I have done you justice.
It's been great doing the OWOP sewing challenge, thank you Jane for organizing.
