Merry Modkid Katie Skirt

Friday, December 4, 2015


Have you seen the inspiration shared this week during the Merry Modkid Blog Tour? When I put this tour together for Modkid, I was giddy with excitement over the bloggers who agreed to participate. I've been blown away with their creations, and it makes me want to sew every Modkid pattern in a holiday style!

Since I was organizing, I decided to jump in on the tour with a simple and playful look for Tandy. I have had gingerbread houses and cookies on my mind, so that inspired this version of the Modkid Katie Skirt


The top ruffle on the skirt is actually a flouce (cut in a circle) that gives it a little extra fluff. While that would be terrible on my hips, it's pretty adorable on a child. 


The pattern uniquely utilizes the fabric left from the center of the circle flounce to create pockets, but I opted to omit those and continue my theme with the jumbo ric rac for icing on the "cake".


My mom found the cute gingerbread buttons at Joann's so I added a few along the front of the skirt.


My grand intention was to sew the Rachel Dress as a top to go with this skirt. The buttons would have been so cute down that front ruffle, but time got away from me. I added the buttons to a ready to wear shirt to tie it all together instead. 


Here are a few more details you don't want to miss!
