Cleo Pinafore & Dungaree Dress

A review of Tilly and the Buttons Cleo Pinafore and Dungaree Dress

Reviewed by Holly Stevens on 24th October, 2017

I’ve been a bit late to the bandwagon with this one. The Cleo dungarees from Tilly and the Buttons is a bestseller and it’s clear to see why. Not only is it super simple to sew together, you can wear it pretty much all year round! I’ve kind of made mine for autumn though in this rich burgundy/wine colour.


There are two options for the dungarees; a mini version which length ends just above the knee, and a longer dress style version which is designed to have a centre front split. I made the mini version and wouldn’t want it to be any shorter. I actually made the hem smaller as to lengthen it a teeny bit more!

There are multiple pocket options meaning you can have a centre front top pocket and/or two smaller hip pockets which can be placed on the front hip or bottom area, although really you can place them wherever you fancy!
