If it is your first time here… welcome! If you know us already…welcome back! CocoWawa Crafts is an independent sewing pattern company loving comfy, classic designs with a twist and a sweet aesthetic. Simple and nice patterns for all sewing levels that you can make and wear all year around, depending on the fabric you go for.
And this time we introduce the Honeycomb Shirt & Dress sewing pattern, a beautiful and feminine design featuring a Mandarin or stand up collar, front button placket, two different options and lots of versions to choose from. You can opt for the shirt that comes with a nice gathered peplum or the dress, with a midi length that you can alter to your desire and pockets.
There are also several sleeve options: regular long sleeves and long sleeves with bows for the colder months; and then short sleeves and a sleeveless alternative, perfect for Spring and Summer. Apart from all this, the Honeycomb Shirt & Dress comes with a back yoke and darts and side panels and straps that make the fitting part so much easier. The design is naturally loose but with the straps you can adjust it to get a closer fit.
With lots of detailed instructions, technical drawings and tips to get the best results, the Honeycomb Shirt & Dress will become a staple, with a twist, in your handmade wardrobe.
And there is more! We are organizing a Sew Along along the month of June (more info coming soon) but if you can’t wait and want to make your Honeycomb today, there’s also a YouTube video with a step-by-step tutorial to help you with the tricky bits.
