I made not one but two Cleo dungaree dresses! Yay!

Cleo is the recent pattern release from Tilly and the Buttons. This pattern became really famous and a favourite for most seamstresses. The reason is simple. It is a cute pattern, it flatters everyone and also it is an easy and quick make which is a plus. It comes in two length variations mini or knee length. You can either put dungaree buckles or buttons if you prefer in order to button down the straps. Finally, there is an option to put a pocket in the front upper part, or/and on the front low part or on the back at the hip area.

The pattern is labelled as a beginner’s pattern. For the full review of the pattern, go to
