Part of our Rome Collection, 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 a 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 a faced neckline finish.

Success for a new sewist!

I suggested my sister make this as her first top, and it turned out beautifully. She sewed it in linen.

Grate pattern!

Indeed it's easy to sew and you can make smth gorge by choosing some special fabric ;)

Sophisticated Simplicity!

I LOVE this pattern, especially the top!! It can be done with so many combinations and fabrics. I was hesitant on the dress but made it with Ankara fabric and threw in some Broderie Anglais and super is an understatement. So simple but the end result make a bold statement. Easy to follow and wow a gift that keeps on giving!

I'm onto making my third Cielo top with big puffy sleeves. It makes up beautifully and is a pleasure to wear. Gets loads of positive comments when I wear it!

Great pattern

I can't stop making this pattern. By happenstance (not having enough material) I started doing a "party in the back style" adding some color to back and cuffs. It goes so perfectly with the pietra pants. Thank you Closet Core.

Very easy fast sew with a ton of options. I’ve made it in double gauze as a PJ shirt all the way to a fancy work shirt. The instructions are clear to follow for beginners and there are some fun ways to hack it to make it your own.
