This lined, sleeveless A-line dress pattern includes three color blocked front options, all of them giving a retro feel. The A-line sleeveless shift shape instantly evokes the idea of the late 1960s when colour and design were bold fashion choices for young women. All of the designs are inspired by modern art. There's also a fourth option... you can also use the front lining piece to make a plain front to embroider or trim as desired.
This pattern is a great way to gain confidence in sewing curved seams and lining garments. Instructions are given for buttons/buttonholes, snaps or Velcro (R) back closure.
To add even more value, the pattern includes a tutorial for drafting your own color blocked design using the lining pattern pieces provided.
This ebook contains full instructions on how to make each of the pictured dresses, full sized computer drawn pattern pieces, plus a comprehensive tutorial explaining how to create your own original color block design. The tutorial shows you how to break up a pattern piece into smaller parts with curved and straight edges and how to add seam allowances and notches. You can use this tutorial to draft cheerleader outfits, Euro-style designs, appliques or picture style dresses. The only limit is your own creativity! My hope is that you will take this pattern, choose the options you like best, and come up with an original creation that's unique in every way.

I've been sewing, knitting, crocheting and embroidering all my life. I love making up my own designs and dressing dolls and teddy bears. For many years I made artist teddy bears and sold them under the name Ninie-Bears. I made over 500 bears that were sold all over the world including USA, Switzerland and Japan. Nowadays I design doll clothes patterns and I digitize designs for machine embroidery too.
My doll patterns fit the popular 18 inch soft bodied dolls such as the American Girl Doll, Gotz Precious Day series, Mme Alexander, Our Generation and Springfield dolls.
