Tilly and the Buttons - Coco Dress
Designed for low-stretch knit fabrics, this classic style features a boat neckline, choice of top or dress lengths, three quarter length or long sleeves, with side splits at the hips on the top version. Make it your own with optional sixties funnel roll neck, rolled cuffs and patch pockets.
A year-round staple that's so easy to wear, Coco makes a great spring marini̬re top, summer tunic, autumn funnel neck or cosy winter dress.
View A has a contrast yoke, Peter Pan collar with a 3-button closure, short sleeves, and hits above the knee.
FABRIC SUGGESTIONS - Medium weight knit fabric with very little stretch. Look out for interlock knit, double knit, ponte di roma, or feel the fabric to check it's not too fine or stretchy.
