Modkid Susie with Ruffles

Friday, April 8, 2016

I know I've said I'm not a huge ruffle person, but I did want to show a fun variation you could do with the Modkid Susie. So, I went ahead and put a ruffle on it. Ha!


This girl dances and sings to her own tune. Literally! She would rather sing you a crazy song about the grass and bugs than about a Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

 

She brings on the big ole crocodile tears and rubs them away on your sleeve for effect plenty, but for the most part she's such a happy kid. She's the best kind of comic relief on stressful days!


I posted the tutorial for adding ruffles to the Modkid Susie pattern over on the Modkid blog yesterday. I just love stretching a pattern just a little bit further.


Both of these fabrics came from a growing fabric stash I am inheriting from my great Aunt. Each time I go to Texas, my great Uncle has uncovered another box or 5 for me to go through. It's so fun to find a receipt or tag attached to the fabric. She would buy yards and yards of cuts, and the price, according to our current standards, was so low. I only wish I had some inkling as to what she envisioned each piece would be. 


Tandy doesn't have any clue about the He loves me, He loves me not poem, but I can't help of thinking of it every time I see this photo.


And, then the goofy side was out again. Making me smile, and I'm so thankful for smiles.

  2. Seriously is the perfect amount of ruffle! I agree that it would have been fun if you aunt had made a "look book" with design ideas, but I'm sure she's tickled with what you're making from all of her fabrics! The outfit is adorable!!
