This simple A-line wrap dress pattern 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.

Easy dress to make

This is a very fun and easy dress to make. There are no snaps, velcro or buttons. It has 3 armholes so it wraps around the doll and overlaps with no dolly skin showing. I think it would be excellent for little girls who might struggle with dressing their dolls. I was unfamiliar with 3 armhole dresses, so I did some research and found that they were popular in the 1960's. Perfect for my Girl for All Time, Sam.
