Shwin Designs Pattern Review - Penny Lane Dress

I'm so happy to be back to blogging. The details in the patterns coming out lately are just stunning. I had the opportunity to test thew Penny Lane Dress by Shwin Designs for my Abby who is now 6 and we are both so happy with it. 

About the pattern:

  • Available in either a top or a dress 
  • Cuffed sleeves (same piece as the bodice, win!)
  • Adorable Crossback design
  • Available in sizes 12-18 months to 8. 
Abby is rocking the size 7 dress as written. She's square in the middle of the sizing on the chart. 

Handmade gold polka-dot bias tape and an intricate back detail. Need I say more? ;)

The main fabric for the dress is Summer Night Lights from the Michael Miller Wee Wander collection.

The gold polka-dots is from Joann's.

This dress is adorable and a really quick sew. There will definitely be more of these for summer around here. I only wish it came in bigger sizes for my oldest. :)

Penny Lane is on sale right now for $6. Hop over and grab your copy.


  1. This print makes everything look so cute, doesn't it? Your daughter looks very happy with her new dress. I especially like the homemade bias tape.

    1. Thank you so much! I'm a sucker for homemade bias tape too. ;)
