Skill Level


One of our most popular patterns, Cleo is easy to make and oh so comfortable to wear. Make it dungaree-style with buckles or as a pinafore with buttons, with mini- or knee-length hem, optional centre-front split, choice of patch pockets and contrast topstitching. Wear Cleo year-round, over a Breton top in the summer or with a roll neck and snuggly tights in winter. Flattering on different shapes, once you try it, you’ll wonder how you lived without a dungaree dress!

We’ve made Cleo up in a number of fabrics, and it always looks fantastic! Once you’ve made one you will want to make another!

If you need any inspiration or to see how other people have styled their Cleo dress, you can search #sewingcleo on Pinterest or Instagram, and once you’ve made your own Cleo, tag us with your garment, using #thestudioatnumber30makes
