Modkid - Penny Pattern

Modkid sewing patterns by Patty Young.

Knit dress and top option with short and 3/4 sleeves

Penny is a laid-back and comfy shirt or dress designed especially for the beginner sewist or for the confident sewist just beginning to sew with knits. There are only 3 pattern pieces to cut and assemble, so it goes together without a hitch! You will have loads of fun embellishing this simple dress or tunic with appliqués, ruffles and trims or adding fun variations like an empire waist, contrast sleeves or a ruffled hem — detailed instructions for these looks included on pages 5 & 6. For that perfect “mommy & me” look we have a women’s version of Penny, called Penelope (sold separately).

Sewing with knits is easy and fun with this step-by-step guide which includes lots of tips, photos and diagrams to guide you along.

SUGGESTED FABRICS: use stretch knits only: cotton interlock, jerseys, matte jerseys, lightweight double knits, stretch velvet or stretch lace, 58”/60” wide.

Sizes 2T-10
