Tilly from last years sewing bee has designed a fabulous top-dress pattern called the Coco. See her website called Tilly and the buttons, it has some great sewing patterns and her blog is always interesting. I made a bust adjustment, added a few darts and buttons around the neck (plus some buttons on the cuffs). I used a medium weight stretch fabric, the fabric is very soft, I got it from one of the fabric shops in Holt, Norfolk. I am very pleased with the fit, although I made quite a few changes to the original pattern, including reducing the width of the shoulders. I just love all the buttons!!!! I might try the dress version of the Coco next!
