Maison Fauve presents the versatile Penelope Dress. This sewing pattern was created with the thought of slipping on a garment without thinking, but knowing it'll make you look beautiful for any occasion. 

The Penelope Dress is a pretty dress wrap comfortable and flattering for all figures. A little retro but feminine in detail with its buttoned bodice and always the Fauve detail: a pleated work on the shoulder and beautiful flowy sleeves. 

The Penelope Dress can be worn as a separate blouse and wrap skirt with a little simple adaption to the pattern which is explained within!

SEWING LEVEL
Advanced. The main technical points are the shoulder pleats, belt assembly and facing assembly.
