PATTERN: Coco dress Tilly and the Buttons 

FABRIC: Navy & white stripe cotton knit, Stof & Stil Copenhagen

This dress was a quick sew up and was my first time using a Tilly and the Buttons pattern. It is one of only a few patterns where I have not had to make any alterations for fit. Which was a perfect pattern for me to whip up to get me out of a sewing funk. 

The fabric is a quality cotton knit that I picked up in Stof & Stil in Copenhagen (which is very near to the train station and is absolutely worth checking out).

Pictures were taken in the breathtaking Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. 


PATTERN: Lark Tee Grainline Studios

FABRIC: Red and ivory stripe jersey, Fabric Godmother

 Another quick sew, I made this Lark Tee (my second) with 3/4 length sleeves and a boat neck. I adjusted the pattern to bring the side seams in for a tighter fit. Next time I will also bring the neckline in a little from the shoulders.

I am working my way through all of the Grainline Studios patterns. The wearability and style of each design easily makes them my favourite pattern company, as I am sure is the same for many others!
