The Penny Dress is an advanced beginner to intermediate level sewing pattern.
Incredibly versatile, the Penny Dress can be sewn in a huge range of woven fabrics. If you’re a beginner we recommend choosing a cotton lawn, seersucker or linen, whilst intermediate stitchers can have fun with drape, with rayon, viscose and lightweight crepes. With minimal interruptions on the bodice and skirt, there’s lots of scope to make a statement with a bold print for a trendy summer look.
Lisa’s versions are made in cotton lawn (floral version) and rayon (navy feather-print).
The Penny Dress sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements
