Coco top by Tilly and the buttons

It is cold and I felt I didn’t have enough winter tops. So this week I made myself another Coco top.Screenshot_2016-01-23-21-33-19crop

Coco top and dress pattern by Tilly and the buttons is definitely one of my all time favorites. I made this pattern so many times in the past two years since it was published, and I love it. Do you know this kind of patterns? I have a few of this favorites. Usually for me they are very simple designs, but have something that makes me want to sew them again and again. Is it the pretty neckline, or the comfortable sleeves, or the way the garment fit me? I don’t know but I keep coming back to Coco. And it is a staple in my wardrobe.20160124_074030

This time I made the top with the funnel neck. Since I didn’t want it to be stiff  I used a very soft medium weight knit fabric found in my mom’s stash. Think it is a sort of viscose knit. And even though the print is pretty bold compared to what I usually choose to wear, I like the result. I actually think the bold print makes the top a bit more sophisticated then a plain t-shirt. What do you think? Screenshot_2016-01-23-21-32-28crop Screenshot_2016-01-23-21-32-50crop

The Coco pattern is so versatile and can be made for all seasons. I have some short sleeve Coco dresses that I wear all summer long. Plus, the instructions are very clear and the pattern is friendly and most suitable for those who want to start sewing with knits.
