Modkid Kyra with Ruffle

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

One of my favorite things about sewing is finding inspiration and using patterns I already have to recreate the look. When I spotted this dress from Joyfolie, I knew the Modkid Kyra pattern would provide the perfect base. 

Walking home from this photo shoot, Avery started talking about how fancy the dress felt. We started planning for Father/Daughter Dance and Homecoming. I love how jazzed she is about this dress!


I walked into JOANN Fabrics with powermesh fabric for the ruffle from my stash. The instant I carried this burgundy tie dyed power mesh over to the knit aisle and found this beautiful rayon spandex, I knew the combination had to happen. Now, I have to figure out something else to do with the power mesh I already had. Happy dilemma. 

Since the Kyra pattern comes in Girl's and Teen sizing, I can make this look for years to come!

This is the second time I have made Avery the Kyra Dress. Both versions really seem to make Avery feel pretty. I've heard people say that complementing your children's beauty is superficial. I believe God created women to be beautiful and desire to be seen as beautiful. If my children are not made to feel beautiful from their parents, they will seek that approval from the first source willing to give it. I pray my children leave their home with the assurance that God and their Father and Mother believe they are beautiful. I'm not talking about tying their worth to the way they look, but if I can empower confidence with a simple compliment and pretty dress, I won't hesitate.
