A few weeks ago... maybe months... I can' t remember,
this book was recommended to me and I snatched it up off Amazon.
I really like this book and unlike most of the sewing books I've bought, I actually think I'll make most of the things in it. My favorite thing about the book is the pattern pieces. They are all separate and made of quality paper (similar to Kwik Sew patterns).
I made this little top really quickly the other night for Ella, because, BOY! she's gonna need play clothes this summer!
Edited: I forgot to mention the fabrics.
The fabrics are all knit. (Everything in the Modkid book is knit!!! woo hoo)
The bandanna one is a really weird blend, kinda like a ITY- but thicker and came from one of Mom and my trips downtown Dallas in the fabric district. I've had it for YEARS.
The blue is some of those sheets I bought on clearance at Wal-Mart.
I was testing this little mermaid applique for Lynnie Pinnie... isn't is cute?!!
I don't think she's on the website, yet, but will be soon. I'll try to check back in and give you guys a link.
I really like the top and the fit. But, Ella, not so much.
She never likes anything baggy. I thought she might go for it, with the band at the bottom, but she doesn't like it. She wore it for the pictures and hasn't put it back on since. grrr.....
and she what I did???
Yep. I put my straps on backwards and didn't notice it until after the photo shoot.
That's what my Mom calls a 'design opportunity'.
I thought it was cute... Ella puked on it.
Now she really never wants to wear it.
You can't win them all, I guess.
