Cleo Pinafore & Dungaree Dress
One of Tilly's most popular patterns, CLEO is easy to make and oh so comfortable to wear. Make it dungaree-style with buckles or as a pinafore with buttons, with mini or knee-length hem, optional centre-front split, choice of patch pockets and contrast topstitching. Wear CLEO year-round, over a Breton top in the summer or with a roll neck and snuggly tights in winter. Flattering on different shapes, once you try it, you'll wonder how you lived without a dungaree dress!
This easy-to-use sewing pattern will take you through the steps to making the CLEO dungaree dress, with jargon-busting instructions and photos showing you how to sew each part. You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full-scale pattern sheets and a colour instruction booklet.
