Request a Swatch/Sample
We understand that buying fabric online can be tricky. Pictures and words can only convey so much about a fabric and sometimes you just need to see and feel a fabric to know if it will work for your project. For that reason we are offering a swatch service: >>> Click here <<<
You can request up to 4 swatches for a delivery fee of EUR 2.
List the names of the fabrics clearly in the comments box on the checkout page.
Note, if we are running low in stock for a particular fabric (2 metres or less) we may not be able to accommodate your request. Please look at the availability before requesting a sample.
Pauline is a true statement dress; dramatic, romantic and loaded with special details. Create truly distinct looks by mixing and matching sleeves and skirt styles to make the Pauline of your dreams.
View A is a chic, sleeveless sheath with a straight skirt that hits just above the knee. View B features a striking puff sleeve in two lengths and a midi-length tiered skirt. All views feature a unique bodice design that incorporates knife pleats at the waist, a face-framing square neckline and a keyhole opening in the back bodice tied at the nape of the neck. Pauline can be made unlined or fully lined and is closed with an invisible zipper at center back.
Sizing: 0 - 20 (see size chart here)
This pattern can be made with a variety of fabrics depending on the desired effect.

For a softer effect, use rayon challis, viscose, tencel, cotton voile or silk.
Optional lining: choose lightweight fabrics such as viscose, bemberg, silk, lawn, voile or batiste.
