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. 

SUGGESTED FABRIC

This pattern can be made with a variety of fabrics depending on the desired effect. For a more structured shape, use light to medium weight woven fabrics such as linen, chambray, or cotton shirtings. For a drapier effect, use rayon challis, tencel, cotton voile or silk.

1 review for Cielo Top and Dress
  1. Hils (verified owner)

    I have made 2 Ceilo tops, such a great shape, to either dress up or down.

    My 1st one (a toille) I did make a bust adjustment & I realised I didn’t really need it as the top is a generous size.

    When I make another Ceilo I will add some length to the top as it does come up a little bit short & I am only 5ft 2″.

    Again the perfect top to take us between seasons as you can throw a cardigan over it or wear 1 of those M&S thermal long sleeve tops underneath.
