Breton chic, DIY style
Fill your wardrobe with classic Breton tops, cosy knit dresses and sixties-style funnel necks – all from the same pattern! Inside you’ll find a step-by-step photo guide to making Coco on a regular sewing machine (no overlocker or serger required).
Choose from top or dress length, boat neckline or funnel roll neck, long or three quarter sleeves with optional rolled cuffs and patch pockets.
