GET INSPIRED #SewingCleo
This was a good pattern to start my dressmaking with. Comprehensive instructions with useful illustrations. I did struggle a bit with attaching the straps at the back but the no-sew buckles at the front were super easy. A little bit short maybe for me; next time will add a few inches.
Yay Caroline, so pleased you've started your dressmaking journey with Cleo. Here's to many more garments for your me-made wardrobe. Team Buttons x
Cleo was an easy sew, wish it had a little more shape within the pattern but overall enjoyed making it!
Thank you x
I haven't done any sewing for years and this pattern was a good way to get back into sewing. The instruction book is great, and what I really like is the pattern isn't that awful brown tissue paper its fab quality white paper with clear lines and markings. I have now bought a new machine and have just about finished the pinafore. Will be purchasing.more patterns in future.
Aww Susan what a lovely message thank you so much, so pleased you're happy with the quality of our paper patterns. Team Buttons x
Nice and easy pattern. The short version is really short. I will add couple of inches next time. Also this pattern is not very size inclusive.
Thank you Laura and I hope you'll be happy to know that we are currently working on increasing the size range for Cleo. We hope to have it released within the next few months. Make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter to be the first to learn when it will be launched. Team Buttons x
