This dress was inspired byh Fourth of July here in America! It can be done for any country or holiday though. This dress has elasticised sleeves in a T shirt shape witha sweet heart neckline. Stars and Stripes has 2 lengths tunic and dress length with a double skirt for the dress lenght and the instructions and cutting chart for striped versions of both the tunic length and the underskirt. This lovely frock also has a ruffle option for the underskirt and overskirt(tunic length) with pick ups and bows. There are three different kinds of sashes, a gathed front one, a modified one that has a bow perminately attatched in the back, and a plain ole regular one! I really hope you enjoy this great summer party dress!
