What is A-Line Frock?
The outer shape of the garment is looking like the letter “A” and hence the name is called as A-Line Frock. This is a girls wear and girls upto eight or ten years used to wear. A line dress is one of the simplest of all frocks for a little girl. It is also very easy to drafting and sewing. The frock flares nicely towards the hem in a smooth A-silhouette, while being fitted at the upper bodice, allowing all the freedom of movement that a little girl wants.
