A-line dress , based on 1960s retro Simplicity pattern ( n° 7131).

I add some changes : bell sleeves  and classic collar .

For setting in sleeves (my weak point) , i used the Cat’s tuto  and now , ladies and gentlemen , i can say  loud and clear ” Sleeves aren’t a problem anymore ! ” .

For the bell sleeves , i found this tuto.
