    5 out of 5 Cielo - best shift dress ever


    This is a really unusual shift dress. The pattern is beautifully cut, with interesting shoulder yoke detailing and amazing deep hidden pockets. I made the short sleeved version with the sleeve cuffs. There are also very funky sleeves (which I will have a go at next time). It is a very comfortable dress which you could easily dress up or down.
    It was a straightforward make, very easy. The instructions were excellent.
    It was fantastic to have C cup option, meaning that I didn’t have to do my own FBA.
    I can’t wait to make my next one of these.

    A great pattern with lots of options. I made version 1 without the sleeve cuffs with the neck facing. Sleeve variations, a dress and top version and the choice of faced or bias finished neckline make this a great buy.
    The instructions are clear, with line drawings for each step.
    The fabric is a polyester crepe with a lot of drape
