Modkid Tandy Tunic and Dress

Monday, March 23, 2015

Today, I get to announce the release of a new Modkid pattern that is dear to my heart. (Be sure to read to the end to see the sale details!) One Sunday afternoon, I sent Patty Young an email about a tunic for possible inspiration. It was one I'd been dying to make, but hadn't figured out how. Drafting is certainly not a strong point, yet. Patty and her assistant had actually worked on a similar design in the past in woven fabrics, but hadn't finalized it. By Friday that same week, despite a crazy amount of other projects, Patty was sending me pattern pieces to try out. I almost fell out of my chair! It was practically instant success!  

The tunic version is my favorite. The cross over yoke is so easy to sew. The fullness of the top makes it super comfortable too. After sewing Avery's I noticed a small hole in my fabric, so the hot air balloon applique made the perfect disguise.

I know I'm getting repetitive, but I just love the shaping on this yoke even in the back.

I've been saving one other special thing about this pattern. The pattern is named Tandy!! Well, here's sweet Tandy in her Tandy dress!

Here's a little side story to attest to the comfort of this dress. Tandy loves to dress up each and EVERY day. The funny thing is, that it is always the same dress. It is one of the Target princess nightgowns, so it's super soft and comfy. She has 3 of the same type, but she goes for Rapunzel every time. The day she wore her Tandy dress, she never took it off to dress up. That may not mean much to you, but it makes a statement in our house!

My sister took these sweet photos of Tandy while she was in Texas.

Patty has a release special for the Tandy pattern for the next 24 hrs!! It's only $5!! Half off!!
