Closet Core Pauline Dress Pattern


 Pauline is a true statement dress; dramatic, romantic and loaded with special details. Create distinct looks by mixing and matching sleeves and skirt styles to make the Pauline that suits you.

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.
