VALO DRESS & TOP

Skill level: Intermediate

Sizes: EUR 32-56 | US 0-24 | UK 4-28

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 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. 

Recommended fabrics:

Choose a non-stretch, medium weight fabric. You can opt for a low drape fabric, like the linen blend in the samples, 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.

          I really like this pattern. It’s a classic jumper.
          I had to really squeeze the fabric measurements to fit the pattern on, so get a little bit extra fabric than what the pattern asks for.

          Great little shop!

          I ordered some patterns and fabric a few days apart from each other. Both arrived super quickly - only a few days! The patterns were exactly as shown and a lot of their patterns have extended sizes (HURRAY!). The fabric was high quality and the design very rich and unique.

          So happy with service and quality. Has been marked as a new favorite site.
