A Second Attempt - Tilly and The Buttons Cleo Dress Review

Hello my dears,

In late 2016, I attempted to sew a Cleo dress. I made it out of a floral needlecord or corduroy, depending on which you call it. I was less than impressed with the finished dress. It was lumpy, bumpy, and all sorts of unflattering!

Hello my dears,

While my sisters were here, I offered to do some sewing for them if needed. My younger sister took me up on the offer and asked me to sew her a long sleeved t-shirt. Not including popping to Joann for the fabric, this shirt took me about half an hour to whip up. Which is pretty fantastic! This was my fourth time using the Tilly and the Buttons Agnes pattern, so it's no wonder that it came together that quickly.
