Cleo dungarees

This is the perfect class to learn some basic dressmaking skills. The pattern has two options for fastening: either buckles, or buttonholes and buttons. You can choose to make the short or midi version, which also features a centre split.

  • You'll learn how to measure yourself and choose the right pattern size
  • Discover how to lay out a pattern and transfer all the pattern markings
  • You'll be provided with the list of supplies you'll need on your booking confirmation email.
  • Discover how to finish off an edge with a simple facing.
  • Get to grips with decorative top-stitching.
  • Use no sew fastenings i.e. the buckle.
  • You'll also learn some tips for perfect pocket pressing, and sewing buttonholes if you chose that option.

Cleo is the perfect dress to wear between seasons with tights, polo neck and a cardigan, PLUS it will become your summer staple with bare legs and a t shirt.
