Pintuck Modkid Hailey Girls

Remember these pants!

Well, I just couldn’t let this lightweight chambray fabric go to waste. So, I bring you another version of the Modkid Hailey Girls pattern. This one is the tunic length. I had to change up the skirt a tad to salvage the nice jumbo pockets. The original pattern piece is more trapezoidal to fit with the bodice. Instead, I used a rectangle and gathered the top slightly to fit the bodice. It pretty much blends in with the shirring.

I added a color block back panel. I’d love to tell you it was an act of design, but really I was just running short on fabric. I think it works though.

The pintucks on the bodice really steal the show in my opinion. I love how it worked to follow the line of the v-neck. This is actually the first time I’ve used my pintuck foot for actual pintucks! I have found it quite handy for creating my own piping in the past.

The leggings are from the book Sewing Modkid Style. While I think the fit and elastic detail are very cute, I’m not sure they are right for this top. I’m thinking some skinny jeans or even shorts may suit the style a bit better. I see more sewing ahead!!

  2. Love the change from 'poopy pants' to tunic. I have never been a fan of that style of pants and your daughter rocks this tunic. I love the pintucks on the bodice. So cute!

  4. Most excellent save! I love the pintucks. I've never done pintucks. Is it difficult to shape them like you did?
