Simple sew cocoon dress

 I've had a stressful few weeks so haven't been sewing much. To get back into things again I thought I would go for something easy. I had the Simple sew cocoon dress pattern so decided to give it a go. I used a browny/beige linen I bought at the knitting and stitching show last year. I bought it to make trousers with and to be honest I think the thickness of the fabric would work better as trousers - but I still love the dress! I think it will be perfect for cooler summer days and in autumn with leggings/tights.

I used contrast top stitching on the center front seam.

Liberty facings and pocket linings

I am pleased to have found a neck line that is not too high but not too low. I work with animals and I am constantly bending over and stretching  so can't have a low neck line - this dress will be perfect for work wear.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Looks comfy and I love the pattern linings. Jo x

  2. I love this, such a fabulous shape. I agree with Jo too, the use of the secret liberty is lovely too.

  3. A good wardrobe staple. I have ordered this sewing pattern today (like you, I have a lovely linen in my stash for it). Thanks for blogging about it!
