Here's a brief description of each pattern, with some inspiration photos...

BABY HANNAH

Baby Hannah is a set of adorable flat-fronted ruffled bloomers and an easy-to-sew carefree cropped top. This is the perfect beginner project that will WOW your friends. She will be the cutest girl at her next beach or pool party. To make a "Just Like Me" set with her big sister or cousin, check out our Hannah pattern (up to size 10), sold separately.

PIPER
pleated jumper
Sizes 2T - 10

Piper is an adorable jumper with two-tone pleated panels on the skirt and a cute front pocket. The straps criss-cross in the back and have two sets of buttonholes so it will grow with your child. Use two coordinating prints for a funky boutique look or make it all out of one fabric for a classier look.

shirred v-neck shirt, tunic or dress for tween and teen girls
Sizes 10, 12, 14 and 16

Hailey is a flirty dress and shirt with several length options for your tween or teen girl. It can be sewn with knit or woven fabrics and it has no zippers, buttons or snaps so it sews up in a flash. A comfy and stretchy shirred section below the bust creates a feminine silhouette while making this garment versatile for girls of all shapes and sizes.

ASHLEY
pleated boho bag
17"w x 10"h x 1.5"d (excluding handle)

Ashley will soon be your favorite bag. It has a comfortable and casual style, with a series of box pleats on the front and back of the bag to add a touch of class and sophistication. It features a zipper closure to keep all your belongings secure inside and has two interior pockets to hold your most prized possessions. You will love the size of this bag... not too big, not too small, just perfect! Make the handle any length you prefer and use your favorite designer fabrics and embellishments to spice it up and make it your own!

Itsy bitsy sneak peek

If you follow MODKID on Facebook, then you've probably already seen the sneak peeks of our Fall 2012 Pattern collection... back-to-school edition. If you don't, then I invite you to "like" our MODKID page to get the latest and greatest news on all things MODKID.

Here's an itsy bitsy sneak peek... way more photos and info on Facebook. But, if you don't do FB, don't fret, we will do a full reveal next week here on the blog. I am just waiting to shoot a couple of covers and receive some more tester photos before I can do the whole reveal.

Fall2012-Patterns-SneakPeek

Here are a few FAQs we've been receiving on FB:

When will these patterns be ready to order?
These patterns will go to print the week of August 20th, so depending on how quickly we can get them back from the printer, they should be ready to ship by end of August or beginning of September.

Can we pre-order these patterns?
Retailers will be able to pre-order them as soon as we get them up on our site. This should be sometime next week... look for our e-newsletter! To be added to our mailing list, please send a request to jjyoung@modkidboutique.com. Sorry, there is no pre-ordering on consumer orders.

What size does the baby pattern come in?
Our Baby Hannah pattern will come in sizes 6M - 36M.

What sizes does the tween pattern come in?
Our tween/teen pattern, Hailey, will come in sizes 10, 12, 14 and 16 (girls). It can be sewn with knits or wovens.

Will you make a women's version of this tween pattern?
If the tweens/teens version sells well and there is enough demand for a women's version, we will definitely consider it.

Are any online shops carrying the Heaven & Helsinki knits yet?
Last I heard, the new knits would ship in mid-August (just in time for this pattern release!)  but if I get new info, I will update it here too!

Stay tuned for a full reveal next week here on the blog!
