Three Little Birds Sewing Co
Cielo Top/Dress Class -- Advanced Beginner/Intermediate
Part of the 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 favorite.
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.
Students will learn how to take measurements, read a pattern, and basic garment construction. Basic sewing machine knowledge is required.
