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