Make a Cleo with Madame Tifaine


It may seem at times like we are the unofficial spokespeople for the wonder of Tilly and the Buttons patterns, but they are just so versatile and accessible that we can’t seem to get enough of them! If you are a newbie sewer or you just need a quick sewing fix, Cleo is the one for you.


My new favourite from Tilly is most definitely the Cleo dungaree dress. I only have three versions so far, I think that’s pretty restrained given the endless possibilities that this pattern offers. I think that our unpredictable weather system, Cleo is the perfect item to layer up in the UK. My winter version is made from some lovely heavy weight brushed cotton tartan style.

 If you choose a more lightweight fabric like the delicious Merchant and Mills light denim you can step right into summer, this dress is in heavy rotation in my wardrobe especially with a stripey top.

Cleo is a clear favourite at Make... if you're lucky you may even spot me and Lizzy wearing matching dresses.
