Buy the Mayberry Dress sewing pattern from Jennifer Lauren Handmade, a vintage inspired button front dress with a gathered waist. The pattern features an off-centre button placket, bust darts and a drawstring waist with ties at the front. There are inset sleeves that come in three different lengths: choose sweet turn and hem short sleeves, or add a little drama with 3/4 or long sleeves that gather gently at a narrow cuff. With A, B, C and D cups as well as clever inset pockets, Mayberry is a perfect project for confident beginner seamstresses.
You can also mix and match pattern pieces with the Quincy Dress and Farris Jumpsuit and Playsuit. Become your own designer by mixing and matching tops and bottoms between all three, creating an almost endless number of perfect dresses, jumpsuits and playsuits!
