Modkid Mara and Perfect Tee Set 2

Friday, November 17, 2017

I did not stop with just one Modkid Mara and Perfect Tee (Coupon code at the bottom of the post.) set during testing! I knew I would like this style for my youngest too. I also wanted to highlight that the whole look could be sophisticated as in Avery's ensemble or more classic in today's style for Tandy.

Quilting cotton works great for the Mara Skirt if bottom weight fabrics aren't your thing. This fabric is the Bloom Scalloped Dot in Teal, part of the Flit and Bloom collection by Riley Blake. I can't help using colorful snaps with this pattern. When I first bought my Kam Snap tool and snap set, I opted for the neon snaps. I never imagined I would use so many of the neon colors. They are just so fun!! I accidentally broke one of the snaps while inserting it, but check out the fun solution I posted on Instagram.  

Once again, I opted to use the elastic in the back waistband to ensure a good fit. I may end up needing to let this elastic out just a tad though. I left off the back belt loops here, because I know this one won't be using a belt anytime soon. They do offer a professional finish though.

The gray triblend knit used for the Perfect Tee is from at Walmart. The fabric has actually been really nice for tees. So far the Union St. Tee I made has washed and worn well. I'll hold out on a final verdict.

I have at least half a dozen other versions of the skirt swirling around in my head. I think the Mara Skirt would work well for a school uniform as well.
