Cleo Session

Cleo Dress Evening Session

(sessions are 6 weeks from date below)
  • LEEDS ONLY
  • Monday, 17th July

What to expect...

7pm to 9pm - 40 Rock Lane - £60 - 6 weeks

We will spend the 6 weeks making the Tilly & the Buttons famous Cleo Dress. The Cleo is the perfect dungaree dress which is in so many shops at the moment.

It is a super simple shape which incorporates some lovely details and techniques so is the perfect make for one of your first items of clothing.

The Cleo dress is a great, easy wearing staple. It looks fab for spring and summer in Denim or Courduroy. Make it your own with optional patch pockets, jeans rivets and dungaree buckles.

You will need to purchase the Cleo Pattern from Tilly and the Buttons prior to the session. (details will be send upon booking)

You will also need to bring your own fabric - between 1.5m to 2m depending on the length, style and size you choose (exact details will be sent to you on booking)

For inspiration and ideas on choosing your fabric, you can see other Cleo's and dungaree dresses here Here!

You leave the session at the end of the 6 weeks with a beautiful dress... handmade by you!

Is this session for me?... This is a great session for people who have completed the Beginners Sewing Session and would like to learn to make clothes. If you have sewn items before, and would like to learn either denim or thicker fabric or to make clothes and learn pattern fitting techniques.
