I am officially introducing the A-line dress.
This is a reversible little number, and super simple to make. Hand sewing is for the birds, so you will not need to sew a single stitch by hand (unless your machine goes ka-put!).
Add applique, embroidery, ric rac, or trim.
Make the a-line dress with straps that tie.
Or with a gathered version...
You can find the a-line dress pattern in sizes 6m-8 here!
