The Penny Dress is a simple, easy-to-sew and flattering shirt dress. It features a sleeveless button-up bodice, flat collar, pretty gathered shoulder panel, easy-fit elasticated waist and midi-length skirt. The flattering dropped shoulder offers a nod to the 1950s. Penny makes for a refreshingly simple sew. With no darts, zips or collar stands to contend with it is a simple project, perfect for sunny summer days.
