In this video lesson, Susan teaches both views of Penny from start to finish. Penny is a classic yet unique round yoke dress that fastens in the back with buttons. Penny allows for a little smocking or soft gathers on the front and back of the dress skirts. The round yoke is piped and fully lined. VIEW A is smocked just below the front and back yokes. VIEW B is unsmocked and perfect for personalizing the yoke with a monogram, buttons, or optional Peter Pan collar. Includes instruction for short puff sleeves or banded long sleeves.
