Aloha Dress

Aloha Dress
Inspired by the casual attire of beach life, this oversized sundress is sure to please your little sweetheart. All the detail is in the back with a clever bow tie closure made with an unusual hidden facing feature. A simple tip is included for a painless zipper technique or you may choose the loop and button feature for an easy method to finish the back. The optional skirt has a fun twirl factor, since it is created with multiple wedges cut using the Phillips 10 degree ruler. Our young model wanted to spin all day long!
