Maison Fauve - Zenith Blouse and Dress
About the Zenith Blouse and Dress
Zenith . . . the beauty of the sun at its peak. This stunning pattern has unique darts that echo the rays of the sun. The pattern offers 2 versions: a dress and a blouse. Each version is available with 3 sleeve finishes.
Unlike most Maison Fauve Patterns (which cover sizes 34-52, or even 34-56), this pattern has the size range of 34-46.
Select viscose, cotton, tencel, linen, silk and for the blouse version a pretty openwork fabric as well. Choose soft fabrics, which will flatter the delicate work of the darts and the fall of the skirt. In all cases, choose a fabric that marks the folds well with the heat of the iron.
