Since the moment we launched our MODKID sewing pattern collection, now nearly two years ago, we have been listening to your feedback, taking notes and planning ways to offer the best possible product out there.
The 3 most frequently asked questions we receive regarding our sewing patterns are:
- Can you make them in larger sizes? (our first 10 patterns went up to size 7)
- Can you include the sizing chart on the back page? (these were generally located on page 2)
- Can you break up the fabric requirements by component/piece? (the fabric requirements were shown as a whole, not broken up by piece)
These were all valid requests and we've made it our purpose to address each and every one of them in all the new patterns we launch but also in new re-prints of popular, now sold-out, patterns.
As you know, our new girls' patterns, Maddie and Penny, do go up to a size 10, which is 3 sizes larger than our first generation of patterns, and we've also designed women's versions of these patterns, Madeline and Penelope (in sizes XS - XL), to satisfy another popular demand. And I should also point out that all new patterns also include detailed sizing charts and fabric requirements on the back page as you requested.
But in addition to the new patterns, we've also reprinted two of our most popular first generation patterns that were currently sold-out, Emma and Frida.
As you see above, the new and improved patterns showcase the latest fabric line on the cover (more on that soon, I promise!) to give them a longer shelf-life and now go up to a size 10... YIPPEE!
The back pages have also received a whole new facelift! Let's take Frida for example...
As you see, the top row of inspiration photos has been updated to show garments made with fabric collections that are currently available in stores (the old version of Frida only showed garments made with Andalucia, which is now retired.) The potty girls now have faces, as opposed to the faceless versions on older patterns. But most importantly, the fabric requirements chart now shows the yardage broken up by piece, just in case you want to make the sleeves, hem band and pocket in a different fabric than the main skirt and bodice. And, last, but not least, the sizing chart is now on the back page and shows US and Euro sizes in addition to the child's height, to cover all bases.
Hope you are pleased with these improvements. As older clothing patterns go into out-of-stock status, we will try to address all your concerns and hopefully launch with a better product every time.
RETAILERS: You can pre-order new Frida and Emma for your store by logging into the wholesale portion of our website. Together with our new Fall 2010 patterns, these will be in stock and ready to ship by the end of October.
