Price incl. VAT
(Low stock: 1)

Difficulty: Intermediate

Sizes: UK 6-24


Fabia defines elegance with its close-fitting silhouette, highlighting an accentuated waist through a meticulously designed waist seam. The front is adorned with bust darts, while both front and back feature waist darts, ensuring a tailored and flattering fit. The skirt, cut on a bias, gracefully flares towards the hem, adding a touch of sophistication.

Concealed within the side seam is an invisible zipper for a seamless closure. Fabia's allure is accentuated by a deep V-shaped neckline, delicately framed with sheer dress netting. The dress is adorned with long fitted set-in sleeves, featuring pleats around the cap area for a refined aesthetic. Embodying opulence, Fabia is fully-lined and extends to a maxi length, making it a statement piece for any formal occasion.
