Alexia wore her amazing knit Lela Tunic at Quilt Market last fall. Here she is with Michelle (who’s wearing another one of their patterns, the Frances dress):

Lela can be made as a tunic or blouse, and works best in lightweight, flowy fabrics. Devon of Miss Make made this lovely version:

I actually just cut out some fabric for my own Lela Blouse; I’m thinking color block for this one. Progress photos forthcoming.

Thanks for the pattern giveaway, Green Bee!

Today’s giveaway is from Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons. Her Coco pattern has made a serious splash recently, and she has generously offered up a printed copy of the pattern to give away to help get us psyched for Spring Top Sewalong 2014!

Coco is sewn with low-stretch knit fabrics, and would be a great pattern to learn how to sew with knits on a regular sewing machine.

We asked Tilly if she had seen any Cocos out in the wide world (ok, ok, out in the wide internet) and she showed us a few lovely versions. Here’s Adey of Sew Convert’s White and Stripes:

And Janet of Kitchen Table Sewing has already made a closetful of Cocos. We really like her Silly Sausage Dog top.

Check out the Coco Pinterest gallery too!
