A stunning jumpsuit / bustier dress, Maison Fauve presents the Kika, a masterpiece in its own right; a well constructed piece full of details.
The elaborate bustier is worked like a corset but is comfortably worn with an elasticated back. The shorts comprise of a couture inlay detail which can be adjusted into a bustier dress instead.
The bustier can be worn with straps to hide a bra or without for a feminine 'real' bustier look.
Advanced. The main technical points are the inlay on the front of the shorts, the assembly of the bustier which is fully lined and with several cut-outs, and the assembly of the invisible side zip.
