Modkid Shelby

Friday, March 1, 2019

Fun twists and ties are popping up all over ready to wear clothing these days. Modkid just released the Shelby knit dress pattern with 12 different variations to make, 6 of which include a fun tie detail. The Modkid Shelby can be made as a crop top or dress in 3 different sleeve lengths. The pattern comes in Girls and Tween/Teen sizing.

The skirt is an a-line cut.

The center bodice seam and the ties offer opportunities for cool colorblocking.

The instructions for the neckbinding and tie hemming give very professional results.

 Lightweight fabrics will give the best results when it comes to the ties. I used rayon spandex from Amelia Lane Designs. It was a tad tricky to sew, but placing tissue paper under the fabric while I stitched prevented my machines from eating the fabric. I may need to go back and reinforce the waist seam just to be on the safe side. The brushed poly for Amelia Lane would be perfect alternative.

I would characterize the Shelby dress or top without the ties as a very beginner friendly knit sewing pattern. The ties add another layer of difficulty that a confident beginner could handle. Be sure to check out the other Modkid Shelby tester photos to see the variety of views.
