This is a true statement dress – dramatic, romantic and loaded with special details!
The Pauline Dress from Closet Core will create a dress with truly distinct looks. Mix and match sleeves and skirt styles to make the dress of your dreams. Make with a chic, sleeveless sheath with a straight skirt that hits the knee. There’s also a midi-length swirly tiered skirt with a striking puff sleeve.
This dress pattern has a unique bodice design. With knife pleats at the waist, a face-framing square neckline and a keyhole opening in the back that ties at the neck. The back bodice has a bra-friendly key-hole detail that ties at the nape of the neck… so lovely and unexpected! Make this dress lined or unlined.
Sew a sleeveless bodice for warmer weather, or add major drama with gathered bishop sleeve in two lengths. The pattern comes in sizes 0-20 (print) and 0-32 (pdf).
