I finally have a Cleo in my life! The pattern had been sitting on my shelf since November, but I told myself I had to complete all current projects before opening the Tilly envelope. This was difficult, especially with so many gorgeous Cleos continually popping up on Instagram. But at long last, I did it! A bit late to the party perhaps, but here I am!
I chose to do the mini pinafore with button fastenings, and I used a cotton twill for the fabric.
I cut a size 2. My only alteration was to eliminate the middle seam on the front and back, which I did by cutting the pieces on a fold.
I really enjoyed sewing Cleo and I’m happy with how versatile the garment is. This was my first Cleo, but it won’t be my last!
Thanks for looking!
