A dress for the sunshine, Maison Fauve presents the Paola Dress, a sewing pattern that can easily be adapted to also be a top.

A dress to reveal the skin to feel the caress of the sun, this is the Paola Dress! It has a rounded neckline at the front to reveal its beauty at the back, with a neckline worked by a set of sliding ties.

With its side panels, and a flared cut at the chest, it can be shortened to create a cute swing top, or to a shorter dress above the knee. 

With 2 pockets on the front where you slip your hands, whether you're strolling nonchalantly by the sea or sipping a drink on the rooftop!

If it's back doesn't allow you to wear a bra as it is, it will also look great slipped over a little tank top, swimming costume, or your prettiest bra!

SEWING LEVEL
Intermediate. The main technical point is the neckline bias which extends to form the straps.

A light supple fabric between 80 to 130gsm, with drape, such as poplin, crepe, viscose, cotton, fine chambray, lyocell.
