Paulette is dripping with romance and elegance. Pair it with a skirt or jeans and you've got a stylish outfit for the spring. The blouse’s fitted cut has princess seams with ruffles on both sides of the bodice front, extending over the shoulders and around the back. Paulette has an elegant standing collar and a proper shirt cuff!

Fabric advice

Paulette looks lovely in fabrics with a fluid drape as well as structured fabrics. The ruffles will drape gracefully around the shoulders in a fabric with a fluid drape such as woven viscose. As a result, there won’t be too much volume around the shoulders. A structured fabric will give the ruffle a more of a ‘winged’ effect, i.e. extra volume. No single fabric is perfect for Paulette. Our recommendations: chambray, Tencel, poplin, viscose (woven), baby rib corduroy, and eyelet lace. There’s also no limit to the prints you can choose from. Think stripes, checks, floral, and more!
