Cielo Top and Dress - Number 20

I lied about the painting! I decided I wasn't quite finished with sewing and had an urge to make something in this new fabric.

The Cielo top and dress, Rome Collection No 20.


  • This is a boxy tee shape (you can have a dress length too). It's got a more intricate shoulder yoke (angled shoulder). It has bust darts but they're not huge making the shape quite loose.


My fabric was uber stretchy and drapey, so I steered clear of the bias neck facing in favour of the facings which are an alternative neckline finish.  There are 2 types of sleeve to choose from and mine is a straightforward short length with a cuff - the alternative was a very full 3/4 length sleeve. I am about a size 12 from M&S and made this as a size 12 and the fit was ok. I could go smaller, but would want to add a bit to the length if I did.
