Named Clothing Valo Dress & Top Sewing Pattern
The Valo pattern includes two variations: a midi dress with an elastic waist and large patch pockets, and a relaxed-fit top with a gathered drawstring waist. Both variations have a distinctive heart-shaped yoke with a scoop neck to the front and a V-neck to reverse. The dress hip seam is reinforced with a flat-felled seam, which gives it a lovely shape and works as a subtle little detail. The dress features elegant half-sleeves whilst the top comes with perky short sleeves. You can also make the dress with short sleeves and a drawstring waist, and the top with half sleeves and an elasticated waist. Pattern includes both a copyshop and print at home versions.

Choose a light to medium weight fabric. You can opt for a low drape fabric, or a more drapey one, depending on the desired result. We recommend choosing a contrast color for the yoke, or using the wrong side of your fabric for contrast or cutting it cross-grain, if your fabric allows. We suggest knits.
