Pauline is a show-stopping statement dress, brimming with drama, romance, and exquisite details. This enchanting garment allows you to craft truly unique looks by mixing and matching various sleeve and skirt styles, allowing you to create the Pauline dress of your dreams.

View A showcases a chic, sleeveless sheath silhouette, with a straight skirt that gracefully falls just above the knee. Meanwhile, View B boasts a captivating puff sleeve available in two lengths, coupled with a midi-length tiered skirt for a striking ensemble. Both views share a distinctive bodice design, characterized by waist-accentuating knife pleats, an elegant square neckline that frames the face, and a charming keyhole opening at the back bodice, tied delicately at the nape of the neck. Pauline offers the option to be made unlined or fully lined and is fastened with an invisible zipper positioned at the centre back.

Recommended fabric

If you prefer a more structured shape, opt for light to medium weight woven fabrics like linen, poplin, seersucker, broadcloth, sateen, chambray or cotton shirtings. These fabrics will help accentuate the clean lines and definition of the garment.

On the other hand, if you desire a softer and more flowy effect, consider fabrics such as viscose challis, viscose, tencel, cotton voile or silk. These materials offer a gentle drape and lend an elegant touch to the dress, allowing for graceful movement and a romantic feel.
