Women’s Janie Dress and Peplum


After the popularity of the girl's Janie Dress, many asked for the ladies version!

The Women’s Janie is a swirly twirly dress and peplum with so many options. The neckline options include a basic neckline, a slouchy cowl, peter pan collar, and a ballet scoop back. The skirt options include the standard circle skirt, a flattering 3/4 circle skirt, and a sweet little peplum. Of course, the pockets are a great option too. With 3 sleeve lengths and a size range of xxs-3xl, this will be a staple pattern. Included is a separate FBA bodice pattern piece to accommodate varying bust sizes.

Lots of tips to help along the way

This is a beginner pattern, however, does require knits.  Make sure to familiarize yourself with knits before beginning.  As with all of my patterns, I do my best to walk you through each and every step.  Always feel free to email me at: hayley@welcometothemousehouse.com, if you need further assistance.

Knits are needed for this dress.  Wovens can be used for the gathered circle skirt, if desired.  Wovens, lace, or knit can be used for the peter pan collar.   Suggested knits are 40%-50% stretch and the stretch guide is included in the pattern, along with some handy tips.

Notions: matching thread, ballpoint needle, and lightweight fusible interfacing for the peter pan collar, if desired.
