Maria Paula — Open Back Dress Pattern
We found your new go-to dress for summer! Maria Paula looks effortlessly chic with just the right amount of sexy. The sleeveless bodice, softly gathered midi skirt and a sensual open back give this simple silhouette a certain luster that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Crafted from our pure linen in earthy rust color, this dress looks so modern and feels good on the skin. It's such a warm color and compliments many skin tones.
You don't need to show a lot of skin to feel sexy and the Maria Paula dress is here to prove it. When you feel good about yourself and what you are wearing, especially if this something was handmade by you, it's going to reflect on the outside and make you look feminine and beautiful.

Opened fine on a Mac for me, just follow the instructions on the pattern and follow the View>Show/Hide>Layers> and everything showed up fine. I can choose the sizes I want to print individually. Can also print them all to one master pattern. No issues! I got my fabric prepped and ready to cut, looks great and I'm excited to wear it!
I'm trying to do this on MacBook and it won't let me export to adobe. It's driving me nuts, I'm quite tech-savvy and can't figure it out...
Hi! Mac is usually set to open PDF files in Preview by default. So it would be easiest to download the pattern to your computer. Open Adobe and thru the Adobe menu click Open file and open the pattern file you saved - this way Preview software can't insist that it's the one that opens the file. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be able to walk you through the steps via email. Have an awesome day.
the download file does not contain a pattern, only pictures of the dress... does not matter if you use adobe or not!! Other patterns from this company are fine....this one is non-existent and the owner is not receptive to understanding her file is incomplete. ONCE YOU DOWNLOAD THE FILE, THERE IS ONLY PICTURES, NO PATTERN!!
Good morning - the pattern pieces are an attached file to the main PDF that has the pictures. Once you open the main PDF with Adobe. In the Adobe menu click View - Show/Hide - Navigation Panes - Attachments. Adobe will pop open a side panel with the attached file. Double click on the file and Adobe will open the attached pattern pieces. Hope this helps and I will email you pictures of the steps now. Have a great day
I clicked DOWNLOAD PATTERN, then used the icon (square with arrow) in upper right of subsequent screen to COPY TO ADOBE ACROBAT. It will copy pdf and launch Adobe where you can then find the pattern under the dots on far right at top of screen by choosing ATTACHMENTS. Good luck! I have never found these downloads to be intuitive, but love their patterns and material so much I keep coming back.

I can D/L all other purchases....this page is blank and with lack of response from admin, I guess I wont. I have had others try it as well.... the file is broken as is my enthusiasm for this pattern
