Cielo Shirt Sew Along

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 favorite. 

In this class you'll be making the semi-cropped shirt. It is easy to lengthen if crops are not for you. You can make a cuffed short sleeve (view A) or a dramatic gather sleeve (view B). All views have a slightly dropped shoulder, angled shoulder yoke, and roomy fit. You can choose to do a bias binding or a faced neckline finish. You will have all the skills to make the dress if you'd like, after the class.
