Cleo Dungarees / Cleo kombinezon haljina

Dungarees seem to be a must make for many in last year and Cleo certainly is one of the most popular out there. It helps that it is easy and fast to make but also that you do not require too much fabric for it (at least not for the shorter version). I was not really sure about this make at first (and still am getting to know myself with it 😊) but I like it. It is easy and casual so I like how easy it is to get dressed in the morning with Cleo on the menu.

Kombinezon haljine su obavezna stvar na šivaćem stolu kod mnogih ove godine i Cleo je sigurno jedna od najpopularnijih. Tome u prilog sigurno ide to što je jednostavan i brz kroj i ne treba puno materijala za izradu (barem za kraću verziju). U početku nisam bila sigurna što reći za ovaj kroj (i još imam svojih dvojbi), ali sviđa mi se. Jednostavan je i idealan za casual outfite i sviđa mi se lakoća jutarnjeg odijevanja s Cleom.

I made the short dress version and used an old light blue denim from my mother’s stash for it. The dress is not very fitted but I did take it in as much as I could to still be able to get it over my head without zip or buttons. I was thinking of fitting it even more and adding some additional opening because on my body with sway back it kind of looks it is hanging from a hanger when looked at from the side. From the front and back it does look as there is somebody in there, so that is fine. I am still thinking about it but am not too keen on sewing zipper or buttonholes so will leave it a bit longer like this. Did anyone else have similar problems? Or is it just me? No? Maybe? That is the only negative thing I could say about this pattern if it even has anything to do with the pattern. I have no idea how to make a sway back adjustment on this kind of garment so….if anyone has any ideas please share them in the comments.

Napravila sam kraću verziju haljine u svijetloplavom traperu koji sam uzela iz maminog ormara jer g on nije planirala koristiti. Haljina nije uska ali sam ju suzila na bočnim šavovima koliko sam mogla, a da ju još uvijek mogu prevući preko glave. Haljina i dalje gledano s boka stoji kao da je na vješalici zbog mojih uvinutih leđa, ali da bi haljinu više suzila trebala bi staviti cif ili gumbe za dodatni otvor. Gledano od naprijed ili natrag izgleda kao da netko je unutar haljine pa je to ok. I dalje razmišljam da ju suzim i dodam cif ili gumbe, ali nisam pretjerano motivirana za to, pa ću još vidjeti kako ju ovako mogu stilizirati. Je li netko imao slične probleme s ovim krojem možda? To je potencijalni jedini negativni komentar koji bi mogla dati ovom kroju, ako je to uopće stvar kroja. Ne znam podesiti stražnju stranu kroja za uvinuta leđa, ali ako itko ima prijedloge slobodno napišite u komentarima.

Topstitching heaven 

 

I found the perfect styling option for it and that is with all the shirts. Fitted tops are really not an option for me because of the side view hanger issue. But flowy wider shirts are a great option and I like how that looks.

 

Našla sam najbolju odjevnu kombinaciju za Cleo i to je sa svim košuljama. Inače dobro ide i sa uskim majicama, ali to kod mene baš i nije opcija jer onda dojam vješalice bude samo dodatno izražen. Ali lepršave košulje su odlične.

If you are thinking of making a Cleo for layering then be smarter than me and listen to fellow makers that have the experience and line it. It likes to go up when all you want is for it to stay down. I even tried to wear it with a slip but it still likes to catch to tights bellow the slip and nothing can stop it then. I am of course lazy to line it now but might go back to it later. You know, when I decide to make a zip or button opening. Yep.

 

Ako razmišljate o izradi ovakve haljine za mjesece kada su potrebne i najlonke, napravite si uslugu i podstavite ju. Voli se penjati uz nogu koliko god vi željeli da ostane dolje. Probala sam svoju nositi sa podhaljinom ali čim su to odvojena dva sloja haljina uhvati mali dio najlonki ispod podhaljine i opa, ide prema gore. Sada sam naravno prelijena da bi se vratila i podstavila ju, ali možda se natjeram na to u nekom trenutku napravim. Isto onda kada ću se natjerati napraviti i zip ili gumb kopčanje. Toliko o tome.

Clip on buckles / Clip-on kopče

 

From all pocket options I used only one, the front pocket. It is great for some smaller things although phone is a bit too heavy for a longer walk, as it likes to pull the dress front down.
I had the clip on buckles in my stash from a place I don’t remember and they were perfect size and even less time consuming construction wise. Although I was happy to hammer in some jeans buttons, but decided to go with what I had.

 

Kroj ima više opcija za džepove, ja sam se odlučila samo za prednji džep. Svakakve sitnice stanu u njega, ali mobitel je malo pretežak za duže šetnje.

Koristila sam clip-on kopče koje sam već imala doma, ali se ne sjećam se gdje sam ih nabavila. Razmišljala sam nabaviti gumbe za traperice da isprobam njihovo montiranje čekićem, ali ipak sam se odlučila za ono što mi je već bilo pri ruci.

I did say I like it, right? Because I do! / rekla sam da mi se sviđa, jel da? Jer mi se sviđa!

 

Next dungarees I make will be some pants ones, I just have to decide on the pattern. I have it narrowed down and think I have a winner but still need to get it as well as the perfect fabric.

 

Idući kombinezon će biti u verziji hlača, samo se moram odlučiti za pravi kroj. Imam par kandidata i mislim da sam odlučila koji ću koristiti, ali osim toga moram naći i pravu tkaninu.
