Sew The Season - Autumn

Sew this season's trends during this one day workshop and start working on your Autumn wardrobe with the transitional Cielo Dress from Closet Case Patterns. 

The Cielo Dress & Top pattern 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. 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.
