Far Far Away Dress

Sis Boom Molly Peasant Dress by Amanda, little cumulus

Amanda’s eye-catching photos and beautiful projects always deserve a second glance. We especially love her version of Sis Boom’s Molly Peasant Dress, a PDF pattern you can purchase, download and start sewing up right away!

Amanda writes, “I absolutely love this pattern and have made it several times over. One thing that I love about the pattern is that the skirt length is totally up to the sewist, and the measurement chart that comes with it is extremely helpful. This pattern is also how I learned how to zig-zag finish raw edges, which I now use on every single piece of clothing I make.”

Molly Dress PDF PatternPattern Info:The Molly peasant is a classic, feminine style that is universally loved for its sweet simplicity. From comfort seeking babies to fashion conscious pre-teens, all will swoon over this deliriously happy frock. It is perfect for the pool or school, but can be dressed up for formal occasions. Peasants are a wardrobe stable for Jennifer’s niece Sophie, who even wears them camping at the lake. The bodice features a delicate neckline and empire styling. With options for long sleeves, short sleeves, bell sleeves, and any length you desire, the design possibilities are endless.
