Zoom in: the Faura top & dress pattern
INSPIRATION

I designed the  faura top & dress pattern as an easy to make sewing project, perfect to get back gently into sewing planning after the holidays. It had to be a pattern with simple lines but with some interesting details as well.

Faura has a princess cut bodice (easy to adjust), small ties to cinch the waist, a flared hem, a keyhole closure at the back and two different versions: short sleeves top or sleeveless dress with pocket. This is such a versatile piece!

New pattern: Faura top and dress

It’s September! Back to school and to the office!

I hope you had a great summer and that you’re full of energy to start new sewing projects. We’ve been very studious at Pauline Alice HQ, working all summer on new patterns for Fall/Winter…

After releasing the Mirambell skirt and Lliria dress this summer, I wanted something easy and fast to make to start September nicely.

So let me introduce the Faura top and dress pattern!

The Faura pattern has front and back princess seams for a fitted bust and then flares just below. Cinched at the waist with D-rings details, it closes in the back with an eye and hook. View A is a blouse with hip length and short sleeves, while view B is a short sleeveless dress with a central pocket.

Perfect for a beginner, it’s easy and fast to make: in a few hours you’ll have a pretty blouse or dress.

This basic pattern, with its sixties details, will look ideal with denims or a casual jacket for an easy-going look perfect to ease back into September.

The Faura blouse and dress pattern is available as a PDF pattern here, with print-at-home and copyshop printing options. Once your order is complete, you’ll find it in your personal account for illimited downloads and it will also be sent to your email (remember to check your spams!).

For fabric, you have a very wide choice. We recommend light to medium weight fabrics such as cotton, linen, rayon, chambray, crepe or even a light wool for the start of winter… We’ve used a striped cotton for view A and a soft chambray for view B, both from the Valencia shop Bye Bye Manoni.

I’m looking forward to see what you have in mind for the Faura pattern! Don’t forget to share your projects with the hashtags #paulinealicepatterns and #FauraTopDress.
