The Penny Dress is one of our most popular patterns, and with the Add-on Pack, you’ll be able to get three more garments out of Penny! Inspired by a hack we did a few years ago, we decided to create new pattern pieces and detailed instructions to help you make many new versions of this SOI classic. Use the Add-on Pack to make Penny into a tie-front blouse to wear over jeans, or add the tie detail to the dress for an on-trend look. You can even turn Penny into a stylish playsuit featuring a comfy elasticated waist plus a concealed button fly, turn-up hems at the legs and roomy slanted pockets. All three versions will fit perfectly into your summer wardrobe!

The Add-on Pack includes the following pattern pieces, plus new instructions to show you how to adapt the original Penny Dress pattern:

  • Penny Tie-Front Blouse front bodice and front facing pieces
  • Penny Tie-Front Dress front bodice and front facing pieces
  • Penny Playsuit front bodice, front facing, trouser and pocket pieces

PLEASE NOTE: The Penny Add-on Pack is not a complete pattern. You will need a copy of the Penny Dress pattern in order to make the blouse, dress and playsuit versions. Save 10% when you get the Pattern and Add-on together with the Penny Dress Bundle!

Have a look at our Pinterest board for some inspiration and see what everyone is making on Instagram with the hashtag #soipennyaddon.

Fabric Suggestions

The Penny Dress and Add-on Pack sewing patterns are extremely versatile when it comes to fabric. Most light or medium weight woven fabrics, such as cotton, linen, rayon, viscose, wool, crepe or even silk (if you’re feeling adventurous!) will work. Just remember that slippery fabrics are harder to sew!

The Penny Dress and Add-on Pack are available in UK sizes 6-30 split into two different blocks: sizes 6-20 (B cup) and sizes 18-30 (D cup). See the size charts below for details on fabric requirements

The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • Printable PDF Pattern in sizes A4, US Letter & A0
  • Fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet

If you purchase the PDF Pattern + A0 Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our A0 Printing Service here.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.

Is this sewing pattern layered?

Yes! This pattern is layered so you can print off just the size(s) that you need. Find out more about layering here.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
