I have made the very fast Cleo Dungaree skirt by Tilly and the Buttons. Great pattern but in hindsight I chose the wrong weight fabric. It happens, but you live and learn.
My fabric choice was made entirely on a colour match that was perfect for my suede boots. This fine needlecord however is too light to support metal dungaree clips on the straps as well as hold the bib firm on the front. I do still like wearing it though. It was so fast to make I will try again in another fabric - drill, heavy cord, thick denim, canvas that sort of thing.
It has been my weekend/day off outfit and is really comfortable because of the ease. I love the orange top stitching which matches the embroidery on my eight year old boots.
I am a bit disappointed this wasn't the skirt I had in my mind because all the notions matched so well and there is a secret little Liberty touch on the inside for the facings...
It was all going to be so wonderful. Anyway, it is totally wearable as it is bringing me joy worn with leggings in these cold winter months. I am all done for winter clothes for a while now, might work on my quilt for a bit.
Thanks for dropping by. Jo xx
