Sleeves too boxy

I've made this 3 times, once as a dress, twice as a top. All without pockets. I had to make several adjustments to the side seams and sleeves so that it fit better. It was super boxy and not flattering. The arm holes are bigger than a regular shirt or dress. After much unsewing, basting and tailoring, I finally I like how they fit and look. I made it in a 12. The dress didn't work out at all, I just finished taking the whole thing apart. The puffy sleeves and long cuffs were too much for me...my 20 year grand daughter said it looked like a hospital gown! Disappointing. I won't use this again. Three times is enough for something not to work.
On a positive note, nice instructions. I consider myself an expert sewist and I'm not used to failed projects.

My new TNT

I made the Cielo Top with a linen/rayon blend. I cut a size 10 and lengthened the top a bit. Everything went together beautifully. I used a facing because I liked the structure that it added. It seems a simple pattern but the details make the difference, a wide hem, cuffs, darts and wide stitching for the neck facing were perfect for my more structured fabric. I immediately planned two more, one in a light, drape fabric with bias binding and small hems.

Dramatic sleeves

I was looking for a top with big sleeves, and the cielo is perfect. I’ve only made the long-sleeved top version, and I lengthened the bodice by five inches (as personal preference) and it turned out great. I’ve sewn many of the closet case patterns and they all have very clear instructions, the Cielo is no exception. Recommend!

Simple and dramatic

I really liked this pattern - I've sewn the long sleeved top only. It's an easy sew. The bodice is relaxed without being boxy. The sleeves are fabulous. I like that there is an option for a neck binding instead of a facing (I dislike facings!) Recommended!

Absolutely love this pattern. Great instructions, easy to follow and made up beautifully. Only point is dress D called for much more fabric than was required, I got it out of 1.7mtrs with no alterations. I will be using this pattern for more creations! 🙏
