Something for the ladies

Our new sewing patterns were delivered at MODKID HQ yesterday, so all wholesale pre-orders will be shipping out this week! WOOHOO! As I was looking at the piles of boxes strewn all across the floor, I realized I've only blogged about one so far, so I'm going to double up on my reveals this week because we have so much going on. Today, we'll be talking about the women's wear portion of our line-up.

Gabrielle is a flirty summer dress, perfect for a family party, a girls’ night out or a casual outdoor wedding. It includes four different options -- Views A (dress) and B (shirt) feature four skinny shoulder straps that tie at the shoulders for a sweet and casual look. Views C (dress) and D (shirt) feature a backless bodice and two wider straps that loop in the back and tie into a long, beautiful bow. Have fun combining fabric designs for a casual, eclectic look or make it all out of one fabric for a dressier look. You’ll soon find that the sizing on Gabrielle is quite generous because it cinches at the waist with a drawstring and above the bust with elastic.

Check out all the different options included within this pattern:

Gabrielle Potty Girls

The dress version, View A:



The shirt version, View D:



My sweet tester, Kristen McVane, did two View C dresses, one in woven fabrics (using my Grand Bazaar shirtings) and one in knits (using my cotton interlocks). I love them both!


And my other tester, Marie Villa, did an adorable version of the View A dress in Grand Bazaar's, Sari Wrap Melon:

(the women's version of our girl's Julia skirt)
Here by popular demand, Juliana is a sweet skirt that is as easy to sew as it is to wear. There are no zippers, buttons or snaps to apply; just a couple of casings to sew. The double-layer super full skirt can be made with or without the drawstring detail. A template and detailed instructions for creating a fabric broach or hair flower are included within this pattern, for those who wish to add extra embellishment to a pre-purchased top.



A million thanks to my tester, Anna Garner, for this awesome version in Turkish Garden and Spade:


And to my other tester, Marie Villa, for this super sweet version in Mehndi Stripe and Spade:

Again, retailers, the patterns are no longer on pre-order status, so if you haven't placed your order yet, you can do so on the site now.

Stay tuned for a couple more reveals this week...


  1. I love this pattern. I have the "little girl" version and my girls have tons of these skirts in their closets. They love to wear them and everywhere we go people comment how lovely they look. I will have to get this one for me so I can match my girllies:)
