How do I make the Transat dress?

The Transat dress is the perfect summer project. Quick and easy to sew, this beginner's sewing pattern does not lack the usual Maison Fauve details: a shoulder enhanced by a set of flat pleats, very feminine neckline front and back, and its perfect length enhanced with a split in the front to reveal just the right amount of leg.

The Transat dress has a straight cut, and it emphasises the silhouette nicely thanks to its wide belts. It is of course bra compatible, and we give you a trick to follow to make a small method which attaches to the straps of the bra. Thus the dress has a perfect and very comfortable fit.

This pretty pattern is available in paper format, and you can also find the Transat beginner sewing box with all the supplies you need to sew yourself a sublime dress in Léo viscose jacquard Rose Pepper or Vert Scarabée.

An ideal gift idea to spoil your favorite seamstress.
