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.

Cute Top

I made the cuffed sleeve crop as my first ever top sewing project. It was fun and easy (after taking the "sewing clothing" class) and turned out really cute!

Already a favourite

I have sewed myself four Cielo tops already - it has become my go-to summer pattern. It is relaxed and supremely easy to wear, and has some nice finishing touches. I made mine a few centimetres longer than the pattern suggested.
