Introducing Modkid Vivian Shirtdress and Nightgown

Wednesday, December 07, 2016


Vivian is a stylish, versatile and cool shirtdress accented with classic details -- buttoned chest pocket, roll-tab sleeves, side seam pockets, shirttail hem and back pleat for an easy fit. It features a removable fabric belt at the waist so she can wear it cinched or loose. As another option, make it without the pockets, belt and collar for an easy-to-sew and comfy-to-wear nightgown.

This pattern comes in sizes 2T (toddler) to 12 (girls/tweens).

Get the Vivian and any other PDF pattern on the MODKID Etsy store for 40% off with coupon code VIVIAN40. This code expires 24 hours from now, so stock up on all your favorite patterns.

We hope you are as inspired as we were by these amazing tester versions!!

Introducing Acorn Valley Applique Templates

Thursday, October 27, 2016


Our Acorn Valley Appliqué Set is the perfect companion piece to Patty Young's fabric collection with Riley Blake, also called Acorn Valley. These adorable critters can be free-motion appliquéd onto a garment or traditionally stitched onto a pillow. But don't limit yourself... these would be perfect made out of wool-blend felt for a baby's mobile or stuffed with fiberfill to make adorable plush toys! They can also be cut out of paper or card stock for all your card-making and scrapbooking needs!

This pattern comes with detailed instructions, how-to diagrams, full-color photos and full-size templates for all 7 items pictured on the cover!

Includes: Mr. Fox (5.5" tall), Mushroom Trio (4.25" tall),
Squirrel (3.25" tall), Acorn (1.25" tall) and Birdie (2" tall)
(Feel free to enlarge the pages to make larger critters!)








Introducing Modkid Liesl

Thursday, October 13, 2016


Liesl is a beautiful European-inspired dress. The bodice features classic bubble sleeves, a sweetheart ruffled neckline and a contrast front panel with eyelets and corset-style ribbon lacing. The skirt is made up of 6 gores for maximum fullness and features large side pockets that every kid will love. There are no closures to install on this dress, but a long sash will cinch the bodice for a perfect fit every time.

Liesl is perfect as a sweet dress, and it makes a great backdrop for some of your favorite costume! 

Coupon code LIESL2016 gets 40% off your entire purchase on the Modkid Etsy store. This means that this, and every other full-price pattern, will cost only $5.99 for the next 24 hours

These testers have us inspired!!

Introducing Modkid Elle

Monday, October 03, 2016

Patty first gave us a peek of this pattern yesterday as part of Sydney's Halloween costume this year. Not only does the Modkid Elle make a great costume, but it is also a very sweet vintage style dress!!


Elle features a ruched front bodice for added texture and flair, but it can be made with a plain bodice for a quicker sew. There is an invisible zipper in the back and elastic cuffs in the long sleeves. With a classic silhouette and a sweet Peter Pan collar, this pattern will be a favorite for Holiday sewing and beyond.

During the first 24 hours of the release, use coupon code ELLE2016 for 40% everything in the Etsy Shop!!

We will leave you with a little inspiration from our testers.
