Pauline Dress
Closet Core Patterns

$20.00 each

The Pauline Dress pattern by Closet Core Patterns is a true statement dress; dramatic, romantic and loaded with special details. Create truly distinct looks by mixing and matching sleeves and skirt styles to make the Pauline of your dreams.

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.

Closet Core Patterns was formally known as Closet Case Patterns.  In an effort to cut down on waste, all our printed stock will have the old branding until Closet Core reprints with the new brand name.

Make Ideas

Choose a soft viscose challis to create the ultimate flowing tiered dress, or a cotton lawn or poplin for a structured, dramatic dress that shows off the pleats and puffed sleeves.
