Buy the 140 Flamenco Dress and Practice Skirt sewing pattern from Folkwear. A sensational fashion for dancing or dress-up, with lavish flounces that move with flash. The dress has princess seams for a semi-fitted silhouette; the princess seams start from the shoulders rather than the armholes to facilitate arm movement. Flounced cap sleeves, a V-neck front, scoop back neckline, and four layers of flounces attached to foundation tiers complete the garment. The skirt has back waist darts, a raised waistline, and up to three flounces. Make it with all three flounces, or just one flounce for a salsa-hot mini. A simple-sew fabric rose accessory can be attached to the dress or pinned in your hair.
