Tilly and the Buttons Cleo

DDF13F94-BAF2-40F5-AB92-02373EDF40A0

I’ve had this Cleo pattern in my stash all summer and finally made one! This pattern seems to be a favorite among the sewing community and I can definitely see why. I’m a big fan of dresses this style as I already have 2 RTW ones in my wardrobe. It was an easy and fairly quick make. I made mine out of a medium to heavy weight navy blue corduroy. I knew this would be a good basic. I made the shorter version and I only used one pocket in the front.

I paired it with a newly made Freya top from her book Stretch. How cute is this fabric from Joann’s with the little foxes?! I’m a little disappointed because the description said heather grey but when the fabric arrived it was definitely a light blueish green.

I am positive I will be making more Cleo’s.  Have you made this pattern?

  1. I can see why you would be disappointed that the color of the fabric was something other then described; however, it is very cute! I love the pattern you chose for the shirt. As for the Cleo Pattern… It is a very popular one among the sewing community. It is quite lovely! It looks stunning on you! I like the corduroy fabric you chose. It’s perfect for the season! well done, Erin!
