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.

Great pattern

Really great pattern with loads of options and really clear instructions. I have made two tips and have more planned - definitely one of the most worn garments I have made.

Fabulous make

Really easy. Love the shoulder inserts at the back which I did in a contrasting colour. Made the short sleeve too. Was worried that it might be too short but it was perfect. Thanks Closet Core for the FBA pieces included with the pattern. Game changer!

Love Closet Core patterns!

Love the Cielo top!

I made the top version for a statement piece for a wedding I went to last Fall and absolutely loved it! I’ve since worn it with jeans and it’s just as cute dressed up or down! Easy to follow instructions and I love the fit, thank you!

Fantastic pattern- so many options and looks! The fit is perfect and I adore it!

Have made no less than 5 Cielo tops so far and a dress and each one is amazing and i love them all. The instructions are straightforward and well drafted. The fit is perfect and other than lengthening the top I haven't needed any other mods!
Although I have hacked it a few times and added a gathered skirt to make a tiered dress. Highly recommended

Best instrutcions I have ever sewed

The CIELO top/dress is a beuatifull pattern with a lot of variations. It's a neverender pattern! I have never met such a detailed instructions. So easy to follow, so easy to sew. I want to sew a dress and a new top for spring/summer soon.
