Easy DIY A-Line Dress

Hello everyone,

I’ve been taking full advantage of my want to sew. My daughter’s are loving it as well because that means they can request what they would like to have made. I love it that they love and appreciate my handmade garments. I feel so good inside when they wear the thing’s I make for them. So next on the list was this simple A-line dress. Lately, my youngest has become obsessed with houndstooth. Which thrills me…..because I am too!!! So I found a great teal and black jersey knit houndstooth on DenverFabrics.com. The week that I was online fabric shopping they were having a great sale on knits. So I ordered quite a bit of fabric. So I will have more projects coming up soon. Once my order arrived I got to work right away.

I followed this very easy tutorial here.

The dress requires 1 yard of a stretch fabric.

I made the following adjustments.

• I added inset sleeve’s instead of the dolman sleeve (click here for a how to tutorial.)

• 3/4″ loose sleeve’s (my daughter’s preference.)

• Added length to hemline.
