Coco-Loco? Well it has certainly been a long time since I blogged! In the last few months life got a little crazy as we sold our house and moved the whole family (and Bobbins too) all the way from Barnsley to Harrogate, which is about 45 miles. Doesn't sound much but it was certainly busy and stressful!
Anyway, we're now all settled in and the good news is that I've got a fab new sewing room (the hubby claims its also an office. He's misinformed) and Bobbins has a dedicated new space which means lots more sewing can be done! I'm going to have a bit of a catch up on the things I've been making in my blogging absence over the next few weeks, starting with my slight obsession with the Tilly and the Buttons Coco. I LOVE this pattern. I can sew one up, including cutting the fabric out, in a little over an hour and it is one of those secret pyjamas type patterns as it is so comfortable.

I'm 5'10" so I added 4" to the length of the top and 2" to the length of the sleeves. Here's the finished article:
As a dress, I've also made a plain grey jersey and a navy and white spot ponte version, but my favourite is this one using this rainbow fabric:
