Get out the pinwheel and prepare to have fun with this pattern by Oliver + S! The tunic and the slip dress that make up this versatile outfit can be worn together or individually. 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.
