The Pina Colada dress is basically a vacation. If a dress could also be a holiday, this is the one. The sleeves are a celebration, the A-line shape is a banana lounge, and the pockets are for smuggling pastries out of the breakfast buffet.
But it is also a dress. The Pina Colada dress features double-layered flounce sleeves, princess seams with hidden pockets, a back-neck opening, and interior bias binding at the neck.

Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate.
Sewers will need a basic sewing vocabulary and a good understanding of their machine. The sleeves have rolled hems and the neckline is finished with bias binding. There are detailed instructions included.

Sizes Included: A-G (US 2-14, AUS/UK 6-18)
Check the 'Sizing Guide' in the pics for measurements.
