Maison Fauve-CUBA LIBRE Dress Sewing Pattern

£19.90 GBP

Looking for a beautiful long dress to twirl around all summer? Look no further, here is Cuba Libre!

The panel skirt construction provides a perfect fit without too much volume, and the elasticated back means you don't have to sew a side zip... Easy to sew and divine to wear, the Cuba Libre dress is available with an open back version for wild evenings or with a closed back to be the most elegant barefoot by the water's edge. With its pretty butterfly sleeves, its V-neckline and its beautiful long skirt, it is irresistible, right?!

Sewing level: INTERMEDIATE, the technical aspects include sewing a V neck, the gathers and fitting the elastic.



The Cubra Libre pattern sizes 34 to 52.

Choice of fabrics: only warp and weft fabrics. I recommend a fabric with a soft drape, which drapes nicely: a twill, a viscose crepe or poplin, a fine jacquard, or even a beautiful lace, fabrics weighing 90 to 250g/m2 depending on the desired result.

If you want to line your dress we recommend cotton voile.
