Cielo Top + Dress Pattern
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.

How do I download my PDF Pattern?
First, we suggest creating an account in our shop so you can access all your files in one place at any time!
After you place an order, you will land on a page with a custom download link. You can download your pattern then, or use the link included in the order confirmation sent via email. If you don’t receive a download link via email, please check your junk mail as it may have been rerouted (and add us to your safe senders list so it doesn't happen again!)
Am I charged for taxes?
All Canadians are charged GST and possibly PST depending on where they live in Canada. We do not charge taxes in the US.
Customers based in the EU and UK will also be charged VAT on all goods. Regulations have changed in recent years requiring VAT to be collected based on where the customer resides (and not where the company is located) so we are legally required to collect and remit VAT even though our company is based in Canada. You can read more about the VAT regulations here.
What currency will I be charged in?
Use the dropdown at the top of our menu to choose USD, CAD, AUD, GBP, or EUR dollars to view prices and checkout in the currency of your choice.
For AUD, GBP, and EUR currencies, the price you'll see is linked to the daily exchange rate between USD and your currency, which means prices may fluctuate. For our Canadian customers, we have established set prices that will not vary with exchange rates.

Canadian customers: Your orders are sent via Canada Post letter or parcel post. Please allow 8 to 12 days for your parcel to arrive, and wait up to 3 weeks before contacting us.
International customers: Estimated delivery dates are listed below the shipping price when you checkout. We have two possible services. International First Class is for packages under 2 kilos and takes approx 10-40 days to arrive depending on your location.

Most shipping services we offer come with a tracking number. This will be sent to you via email you once the order has been processed in our warehouse.
Given the huge volume of mail and the challenges that the pandemic, holiday season, and environmental conditions impose on the performance of the mail service, we ask you to please be patient with the delivery of your packages, and get in touch after 3 weeks for Canadian and US shipments, and 6 weeks for international shipments.
If the above mentioned waiting times have elapsed, please message us about your delay. We’ll be happy to work with you to figure out a solution.

The pattern is very easy to follow, and very accurate with the measurements. I made mine with rayon and I loved it!
This pattern was so well written ! I am newish to garments sewing having finished my first top at the beginning of the year. I was able to follow along with the directions very easily. The parts I didn’t readily understand were included in a glossary section of the pattern. I was able to make a dress without pockets but with the long sleeves and love it!
The Cielo Top is simple but still interesting thanks to the bust dart in the front, shoulder detail in the back and cuffed sleeve. I like the neckline as it's not to big but not too small. I find this top works well with my high waisted pants and I just love it in linen. I've made several already!
I did make this dress and it was very easy! I haven’t been able to wear it yet as I broke my ankle in March so haven’t been able to dress up!
I absolutely love the Pietra shorts and pants pattern. I have sewn several shorts and one
pants. Also,, I recently made the Elodie dress. I am in love with this dress and the fit
is perfect. Keep up the great work and keep producing your wonderful patterns.
I've only made the View A top so far, but it went smoothly and was easy to follow, even for a beginner sewist like me who had to look up tutorials for things like darts and slip stitching. I was between sizes, but sizing up gave me a good fit across the shoulders. The included instructions for grading seams, basting, and using interfacing were all clear and easy to follow. Even doing the sleeves and cuffs wasn't too painful for my first attempt.
I'm looking forward to trying the dress and more tops, and experimenting with different fabrics to get different looks. I'm not sure if it was my fabric choice, my low skill level, or the pattern, but even for a boxy top it did feel pretty roomy in comparison to how well the shoulders fit. I would make it an inch or so longer next time. But it's a cute and modern pattern, and it'll be fun to work with again in the future.
