This simple A-line wrap dress pattern by Thimbles and Acorns is based on a popular design from the 1960s. It is made with only one pattern piece and requires no buttons, zippers, or ties to keep it on. With only a handful of straight and curved seams to sew, beginning seamstresses will love how quickly and easily it comes together. One version has instructions for a 1960s styled mini-dress as well as a modern version with an asymmetrical hemline.
