Pattern Description:

This fun little sundress has playful ruffles on the tiered
skirt. Let your imagination run wild with fun bold colors.
Embellishing it with crocheted, knitted or embroidered flowers
adds to the fun look.
There are variations for a skirt and a swingy tank top as well,
for lots of options to mix and match and create a fun summer
