One of the other students in our class made up a french terry version of Coco which was so cute I decided I should give the pattern a try.
I made this top as a Christmas present for my friend, Carol. She likes tops that are a bit on the long side and not too tight fitting, so I thought Coco might be her cup of tea. Plus, she's got a thing about frogs, and look at the fabric I found at Hart's:

The neckline is a tad wide on me; almost into bra-strap territory. Next time I make this up, I'll narrow the neck just a bit.
I used a new-to-me neckband technique that I found on a tutorial for kid tees. I think I kind of like it.
