Get on with the trend! This pattern features a fully lined dress pattern with 2 different skirt styles: a lovely handkerchief skirt and a classic A line dress. Create a totally different look by not sewing the flounce on. Use a flowery fabric to create a Hawaiian looking dress. This dress is perfect for lounging, walking along the beach, Luau Party or while painting the town red! Along with this tutorial is the easiest zipper application for the back closure.

cold shoulder dress

cool dress pattern and I like the veriations.

Branson, MO

Out of my comfort zone......

I decided to give this pattern a try even though parts of it are out of my comfort zone. I loved it, as I do all of Appletote & Co patterns. I am very pleased with the outcome! I am learning to love making my own bias trim to make it match or contrast!
