Oliver + S. - Pinwheel Tunic | Apparel Pattern

$16.00

The two pieces in this versatile outfit can be worn together or individually. The short-sleeved, bias-trimmed tunic has a keyhole back-neck opening with ribbon ties. The narrow-strapped slip dress looks adorable as a simple summer dress or as a nightgown. Both pieces feature a bias-trimmed flounce that overlaps at the inverted V-shaped front bottom edge. Worn together, the pair makes a spectacular flouncy dress.
