Zoom in: the Faura top & dress pattern

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!




Wow, there’s already some Fauras showing up on Instagram! Thanks so much for the warm welcome to the new  FAURA pattern.

If you need some inspiration for your Faura, check out the awesome versions of our testers and reviewers as well as some of the very first makes of our lovely customers! Colorblock, floral, prints, stripes… so many options! As for fabric, you can choose from so many: cotton, rayon, crepe…

July at Pauline Alice

I hope summer is treating you well! No holidays for us at the studio… Between the last patterns release and preparing the fall collection, we’re busy busy!


Behind the scenes

The summer patterns

As you might have noticed, we had a new model for our summer patterns. Being pregnant, I wasn’t able to fit into the samples anymore so we asked Bea, who owns the lovely fabric shop/sewing studio Bye Bye Manoni in Valencia, to get in front of the camera. And she looks stunning! Here’s some pictures of our photoshoot, we had a great time shooting the Mirambell skirt and Lliria dress patterns!

Thanks so much for the lovely welcome you did to our new patterns! We were very excited to release them and it’s always a pleasure (and a relief) to read your positive reactions.

You can find the Mirambell skirt and Lliria dress in both PDF and printed versions on the shop.


The Lliria dress video tutorial

We’ve made a special video tutorial for all of you who need a little extra help to sew the Lliria dress pattern. You’ll find a step-by-step tutorial with extra tips on fabric choice and finishing touches. You’ll find the video on the blog and on our Youtube channel.


Pauline Alice and You

The first testers’ versions of the Mirambell skirt and Lliria dress are published! If you need inspiration before making your own, check the lovely versions of Céline, Marie, Sonia, Marie and Beth. I can’t wait to see more finished versions!


Last minute note…

The studio stays open all summer so we’ll continue to ship your orders as always. If you have any questions, feel free to send us an email at info@paulinealicepatterns.com or leave a comment.


Have a great summer break!

This month inspiration

We are in love with the handmade ceramics of Cocó Fernandez. This young artist is inspired by nature and botanic and she traces lines and forms on these little objects in the way of Henri Matisse. You can find her artwork on her website.

April at Pauline Alice

Starting today, I’ll share with you all the Pauline Alice news in a newsletter. You’ll know about new patterns before their launch, inspiration for the new patterns and new ideas and blogs I’ve discovered… This monthly letter will be sent to your email and available on the blog as well. So here’s the first April newsletter!



Thank you so much for the love you gave the new spring patterns! I was very nervous before the release as the style was quite different from what I’ve been designing before and I’m so relieved you liked the more minimalistic approach to the Pauline Alice style.

I love seeing your makes on social medias and blogs and everytime there’s a new Tello, Denia or Botanic showing up, it’s such a pleasure! I’m also so glad the sewing kits with fabric and notions were a hit (they disappeared in the first 24 hours!) so you can expect them again soon!



My working place hasn’t changed that much, I’m still working from home but I’ve now doubled the work force at Pauline Alice: Lucile is now working with me since March! She has studied Fashion design in Valencia and will help me with the new patterns and bring new contents for the blog. I’ll interview her very soon so you can know her better.




Sofia Mokkasin is swedish. She’s a photographer, designer, DIYer and mother of 4. I’ve discovered her blog Mokkasin through Lucile and fell in love instantly with the beautiful pictures she shares.



You might have noticed that this week, it’s the Fashion Revolution Week. A week to think about the fashion industry and “Who made your clothes?”.

For me , it’s easy: I make my own clothes. I haven’t bought any retail fashion for some years now (except for lingery and sportswear) so my wardrobe is mostly handmade. But it doesn’t mean I don’t have to think about the industry and its impact on people and the hearth: if I know who made my clothes, I can’t always say the same about who made the fabric and notions I’m using. They might also have poor working conditions for all I know. So I’m trying to buy fabric consciously as well: to small companies or designers, clean manufacturers and people trying to produce in a more sustainable way.



The migration of your old accounts is done so you can now access them and get to your PDF pattern bought before the launch through the “archive” link in the main page header. More details in this post.


Have a great week end!
