Absolutely recommend PE - no matter what level of sewing you are. PE provides succinct instructions accompanied by clear photos. The PE fb family are a welcoming group & encourage you to sew outside your boundaries offering advice/answers along the way!

Meet you there tiered dress and top

Great pattern. The skirt tiers fit together perfectly when using a gathering foot and a size 4 stitch on my Janome machine. I have already fitted the skirt to other patterns.

As with all PE patterns, fantastic, detailed instructions and if you follow the instructions to find your size, you're unlikely to have any fit issues.
