I was going to entitle this blog “Two little maids are we” but thought better of it, however we do look rather, er, twinlike! (only in the clothing department!!)
Hot on the heels of Gabby’s Coco top, I made one for myself from the other two scarves that she kindly donated.
I made her wear her top to work so that we could model them together – very cheesy.
We had a lovely time larking about in her shop doing mad poses.
Here is a closeup of my version, which I am thrilled with. This is a top which could take me from work to dinner.

The details: Pattern is Tilly & The Buttons Coco Top, slightly modified to accommodate the fabric, which is two scarves, made from shirred wool. First two photographs were taken in Gabby’s shop, Heaven Wrapped, Old Theatre Lane, Claremont (interesting to note that I was commissioned to buy a bag that one of my friends saw in the first lot of photos taken in her shop – a great result!)

oh I love that fabric how gorgeous!! Both tops look fantastic 🙂
Love this fabric and how you have adapted the Coco to get the style you want.
these are the best cocos I have seen yet!
Thank you YveeB! I am really flattered.
This is just as lovely as the first one.
Having seen this top in the flesh I can testify to its luxe loveliness. A triumph of the scarves (Coco would be impressed)
Thank you Rachel, I doubt that Coco would be impressed but I appreciate your comment!
I really like these shirts and the print, lovely!
