Sister Mintaka presents the Cleo sewing pattern by Tilly and the Buttons.
Cleo is simple to sew, with no fiddly zips and minimal fitting required – hooray! Make it dungaree-style with buckle, or as a pinafore with button fastenings. Choose from mini length or knee length with optional front split. patch pockets on front or back, and contrast topstitching. Wear cleo all year round, layered over a t-shirt, shirt or sweater.
