Pauline Alice Xeria dress

IMG_3706IMG_3311 2This is my Xeria dress from Pauline Alice. The fabric is a linen viscose mix from Fabric Godmother  which has a good bit of stretch. The fabric shrinks quite a lot so washing before use is essential. One thing I loved about the dressmaking pattern was the appearance of the pocket construction, unfortunately, due to the fabric pattern it’s almost invisible !

    Love it! Ok now I need to make this version. I think it might work for winter, in a corduroy or wool! Thanks for posting!

      I have worn it a lot ! I have another one in silk but it needs a couple of tweaks (would probably have been better as the looser version in the lighter fabric)

        Hmm. Picking the right fabric for a pattern, and vice versa, is probably the trickiest part, for me anyway. For example, I made this same dress in a gorgeous Marimekko fabric, but it was so stiff that it’s really unwearable. I’ll have to refashion it somehow.
