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.

PRINTED PATTERN – You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full scale pattern sheets and a colour photo booklet to guide you through the steps.

SKILL LEVEL – Confident beginners

BONUS TUTORIALS – Follow the detailed Coco sewalong on the blog for extra guidance and design variations. For help sewing knit fabrics on a regular sewing machine, sign up to our online workshop, Learn to Sew Jersey Tops.
