Sewing pattern description

Valo is a 2-in-1 dress and top sewing pattern by Named Patterns

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 Named samples, or a more drapey one, depending on the desired result.

We recommend choosing a contrast colour for the yoke, or using the wrong side of your fabric for contrast or cutting it cross-grain, if your fabric allows.
