I decided to go for the basic Coco shape without the funnel neck, and although I cut out the pockets, I decided against adding them as the finished dress seems so sleek and chic without them
Construction-wise, this is really simple - three pattern pieces only! And as I had made it before, it came together in a matter of hours! Result.
I really like the pattern motif down the side; this dress makes a big statement. Everywhere I have worn this, I've had so many compliments. It's easy to wear, wash and care for.
Wearing this feels like a dressy garment rather than casual; my other dress with the self-same fabric feels very every-day. Perhaps this is because this one is more fitted and figure hugging.
I did grade out a little from my last Coco.
This is a pattern I feel I could make again if I come across an interesting piece of double knit. So I shall keep my eyes open.
