Cielo Top & Dress Pattern
The Cielo Dress & Top is an easy, breezy take on a boxy tee and shift dress. Loaded with interesting details and interchangeable features, it will fast become a wardrobe building favourite.
Choose between a semi-cropped top with a cuffed short sleeve (View A) or dramatic gathered long sleeve (View B). Or, make an easy fitting dress with sleek inseam pockets (View C), or without pockets (View D). All views have a slightly dropped shoulder, angled shoulder yoke and roomy fit, with a choice between an elegant bias binding or faced neckline finish.
The Cielo Dress & Top is part of Closet Case Pattern's Rome Collection. Inspired by Heather's trip to Italy last year, the Rome Collection is designed as a chic capsule wardrobe, filled with simple to make and delicious to wear pieces that pair effortlessly with one another. Each pattern has been thoughtfully designed with beginners in mind, and is filled with enough interesting design details and variations to entice more advanced stitchers.
