HOLLY JUMPER DRESS
MODKID's Newest PDF Sewing Pattern

Well, as you have probably noticed already, we are really embracing the PDF revolution! We started producing these downloadable e-patterns in November of last year, and so far we have 6 already produced with a few more on the way.  So far we are hearing wonderful things about them, but we'd love to hear more. Leave us a comment for your chance to win a free PDF pattern of your choice!

Today, we are thrilled to announce the newest addition to our e-pattern line up. It's called the HOLLY JUMPER DRESS. Holly is an adorable jumper dress that can be worn with or without an undershirt. It features a series of skinny shoulder straps that weave in a beautiful pattern onto a racerback bodice, and two very full gathered skirts for maximum twirl power. A couple of drawstrings at the front give the overskirt a scalloped look, letting the underskirt peek out ever so slightly. It comes in sizes 2T to 10 all in the same pattern, just like our paper patterns do.

Find it on ETSY and CRAFTSY (and coming soon to an e-vendor near you!) :)
My favorite feature in this pattern is the back bodice. Here's a closer look at the way those four straps intertwine in the back. LOVE IT!

I also love the scalloped skirt. Those drawstrings are so sweet! Check out the amazing photos I've received from my testers...

A million thanks to my pattern tester, Elizabeth Shepherd,  for the wonderful test sample and pattern feedback.

Our adorable model, Brie, is wearing a Holly dress made with Puffy Bird, from Heaven & Helsinki, and Diamonds, from Textured Basics.

Now, take a look at this adorable version...

Here are a couple of other photos of Holly I've received, not sewn in my fabric, but still precious. :)

Hope you enjoyed the photos! Again, you can find HOLLY on our Etsy and Craftsy stores, and soon it will be at a few e-vendors out there too!

Now, I just want to do something fun. Since this whole downloadable pattern thing is still a new venture for us, I would love to hear your feedback. Have your purchased one of our e-patterns before? If so, what did you think of it? If not, are there any specific patterns you are hoping to see from us? Anything new you are excited about getting?

Here's is a quick recap of our current e-pattern offerings. You can see them all here on Etsy:




We also have a few new ones in the works. Here is a sneak peek of a couple currently out in testing:


Please leave us a comment and on Wednesday, we will draw 3 winners who will each get to choose a FREE e-pattern from our Etsy store. Please leave us a way to contact you if you are a lucky winner! GOOD LUCK!!

  12. I really love paper patterns, but I have been tempted to try some pdf patterns lately. I am nervous that it will cost me a ton to print them off, but I'm sure I'm wrong. LOVE the new Holly pattern, but also love the two new ones (last pictures). Thanks for cute, well-written patterns.

  23. Thank You for the chance to win one of your great patterns. I've been lurking on ETSY wanting to try one of your patterns. I've been sewing for 40 years mostly with paper patterns but I love these new PDF patterns with all of the great pictures. Please pick this old dog that is learning new tricks.

  25. Oh yes please, make more epatterns. I would love to see Emma and Grace in pdf form. I live in New Zealand so it's always a bit harder to find your patterns, so epatterns are SO much more convenient (and you can start sewing immediately after buying)!!!

  26. My name is HOLLY - please pick me! I love the back straps on this dress! So cute. I'm eyeing the new maxi in pdf format too! I had a friend email me and tell me I NEEDED it too! :-)

  32. I love PDF patterns. I am horrible about losing my patterns, but I always make sure my PDFs are backed up in many places. I haven't tried any of your yet, but I love the Holly dress. This will be the first spring/summer that my girl has been walking so I can't wait to make her some cute dresses.
