Hey, guys! It's really sad, that I'm late to the Coco Party, so late that I didn't even make it. It's kind of the story of my sewing lately. I ordered the pattern before the Coco Party. There was some mishaps where my order didn't get shipped until a week later, but Tilly is sweet enough to gift me her Miette skirt PDF. I finished a polka dot Coco the day of the Party. I just didn't have time to take pictures of it. I haven't taken pictures in a while. It felt weird, but I like it because I get to share with you guys what I've been making.
Anyway, on to the pattern itself. It's a straight forward pattern. I love it. I lengthen the pattern by 2 inches and used a 1 inch hem. The first time around, I made it according to my measurements, a 4 bust, 3 waist, and 4 hips. I didn't like the loose fit, so I cut 5/8 inches off. I like the this fit better, event hough it's a bit loose looking at these pictures.
I was scared to sew knit, and I don't know why I had this horrible fear. It's fast to sew, this took me an 1.5 to sew up. It's super comfy to wear. It's like wearing PJ's, which has its up side and down side. When I eat, I do internally know when I'm full. What I like about the fitted dress is that it too tells me that I ate to much when the dress gets tight. I'm just crazy that way.

Alterations- took out 5/8 at the side seams, lowered the neck line by 3 inches. It could have been 2. hehe
