Modkid Maya

Monday, April 13, 2015

I am loving drop waist styles on my super tall girly girl. First the Modkid Avery and now the Modkid Maya. The Maya is one of Modkid's paper only patterns. After a lot of pdf patterns, it is refreshing to sew up a paper pattern with the instruction booklet in my hands. Kind of like reading a real book after lots of Kindle versions. Not that I've read either in ages.

You can sew up the Maya as a separate skirt and top, or make it all one piece. I went with the one piece dress version, and you can see how it kind of bubbles over the waistband with her hands down. So cute! I might make the sleeve cuffs a smidge tighter in the next version. I'd love for them to bubble a little too. I made the size 8 length and size 7 width. The pattern only goes up to size 8, so I need to remember to sew a long sleeve version in the fall before she sizes out of it!

The fun printed knit is from Girl Charlee, and the solid interlock is from Joann's. I happened to complete this dress just in time to enter it in the Girl Charlee Easter Sewing Contest, so fingers crossed!
