I have some excited things to share with you today!! First, the release of two new patterns, the Modkid Mara Skirt and the Perfect Tee. I have already made 2 skirts and 4 tees, so you can see I am clearly a fan girl!! 

The Mara Skirt works great with bottom weight fabrics and quilting cotton alike. The corduroy I used here gave the skirt just the right structure. Some of the finer details are lost in the busy print. The skirt features two panels on each side of the front snap placket. The deep pockets extend in front to create two belt buckles at the waistband. Colorful Kamsnaps were perfect for my application, but metal snaps are another fun option. Of course, you could also opt for buttons along the placket. 

To achieve a perfect fit, the pattern includes instructions for inserting elastic in the back. This worked out perfectly for my tall, but thin daughter. The back is comprised of 3 panels and falls a bit longer than the front for just the right shape. The two belt loops in the back give a professional finish.

The perfect tee compliments this skirt so well! From being a part of the testing process, I can attest to the effort Patty went to in order to get just the right fit on this tee. The slim style is perfect for layering in the cooler months. My kids need these in every color!! The striped fabric for this tee is brushed poly spandex from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I don't see this exact one in the shop, but that doesn't mean it won't be back.

The other exciting news is the launch of a new Modkid website. It's a beauty, and now you can find all of the Modkid products in one location!! To celebrate, use coupon code NEWSITE for 40% off your entire purchase. Happy shopping and sewing!!
