Tilley and the Buttons COCO TOP + DRESS

LEARN TO SEW WITH KNIT FABRIC!

Make your own Coco, the perfect Breton top or knit dress with multiple variations. Simple to sew, Coco is easy fitting, with no zips, buttons or other fiddly bits. The perfect introduction to sewing knit fabrics on a regular sewing machine, the user-friendly instructions guide you through with a jargon buster, clearly labelled pattern pieces, and photos of each step.

A year-round staple that’s so easy to wear, Coco makes a great spring marinière top, summer tunic, autumn funnel neck or cosy winter dress. Designed for low-stretch knit fabrics, the classic style features a boat neckline, choice of top or dress lengths, three quarter length or long sleeves, with side splits at the hips on the top version. Make it your own with optional sixties funnel roll neck, rolled cuffs and patch pockets.

“The Coco dress/top from Tilly and the Buttons is THE pattern to own right now.” – Sew magazine

“Coco is the first garment I have ever made and Tilly’s instructions are SO good. I’ve found a new obsession!” – Ali

My 40 + years singer machine had stopped working for me but after SewingDirect replaced some parts & serviced it for me it's running like a dream. So pleased I found this little gem of a shop in Beeston who also stock all sewing needs & knitting wool.read more

I found Duncan at Sewing Direct to be extremely helpful and generous in helping me find a particular set of Dinosaur fat quarters I wanted to purchase. Despite them being out of stock everywhere he was able to source a pack from his suppliers and gave me a 10% discount code. This code turned out to be a £10 off code instead and rather than expecting me to pay more towards my purchase he very generously honoured the £10 off. I would thoroughly recommend Duncan and his company for going above and beyond to help me. This is definitely a business worth going back to again and again.read more

Duncan at the sewing and knitting centre was always just a click away if I needed any assistance. Yarn came very quick and was vacuum packed for ease of posting. I have not used it yet but colours are spot on as to sample shown on website. They also do fabric which looks tempting. I would highly recommend this company.read more
