Named Clothing, Olivia Wrap Dress, Paper Pattern
The Olivia wrap dress is a delightfully easy-to-wear and versatile classic piece that is suited for both work and leisure. The interfacing around the neckline ensures that the neckline stays neatly in place without exposing too much. The tulip shape skirt has pleats at the front waist to add ease, and there are practical pockets sewn in the side seams. The elastic waist is tied around with a wide belt.
Sizes: EUR 32 – 56 (US 0 – 24 / UK 4 – 28)
