Make With Mandi

The Penny Tiered Dress

The Penny dress  PDF sewing pattern features a loose fitting bodice and two skirt tiers with gathers.  It is a perfect women’s sewing pattern for beginner sewers as it has no fastenings.

The pattern comes with both long, mid and short sleeve options and has pockets!
It also has two neck line options and two dress length options.
This would be a great make for someone who wants to make a dress which is really versatile and to learn/enhance skills such as attaching facings, inserting elastic in a channel and sewing gathers.
I absolutely love this dress and depending on which fabric you make it from- it can be a great all year round garment- perhaps a brushed cotton for the winter? Or a linen for the summer?
The images show this dress made in a checked Rayon which was perfect for a lightweight floaty dress.
