The Barcelona Dress

Maven Patterns



Buy The Barcelona Dress sewing pattern from Maven Patterns. The Barcelona is the perfect dress to take you from day to evening with 2 bodice options – a classic boat neck or V back. Designed to make a statement in stripes with her chevron detail skirt, she is just as delightful in a plain fabric, or make her in an elegant cloth for a chic and glamorous look!

VERSION A: classic boat neck


Suggested fabrics: Designed with a stripe in mind, The Barcelona would also work well in a plain or printed cloth. Use a woven light to medium dress weight fabric with a soft stable hand such as denims, chambrays, linen, fine wools, brocade. Soft and drapey cloths may require extra ease at the hips to allow for the extra dropping that will occur at the hem, and it may be advisable to omit the pockets.
