Back to School goodies!

My girls' first day of school was yesterday and with it came a new milestone for our family. My oldest, Sophie (or Sophia, as she likes to be called now... sniff, sniff), started Junior High! I can't believe my baby (don't tell her I called her that) is a BIG GIRL now.

To commemorate the grand event, I shot these pictures before they left for school yesterday. The girls wore the newest MODKID knit patterns, The BREEANN Top and the MELANIE Dress (available now in our Etsy shop), which were actually named after their BFFs.

When I posted these pics on Facebook, I got tons of questions about how I did those giant numbers the girls are holding. I just made them up real quick in Illustrator and cut them onto card stock on my Silhouette Cameo machine. Since a few of you requested I made these available, I have these now live on my Silhouette store:

But, now onto the patterns...

A few weeks ago I sneaked peeked our BACK TO SCHOOL collection on Facebook, and both pattern designs were met with lots of "oooh's and ahhh's" and "when can we get these?".

Well, your wait is finally over!! We have just released the BREEANN and MELANIE patterns. And here's a little bit of info about each...


This adorable and comfy dress is designed to be sewn with knits, and features a sweet A-line silhouette and some oversized side pockets for all her treasures. Our pattern includes three sleeve length options so it can take your girl from the warm Summer months through the chilly Winter days.


For the tween/teen crowd, we've designed this hip hooded top that features two sleeve variations -- fitted and flutter. We paired that with an oversized kangaroo pocket and a yoga waistband, for the perfect top.

See lots more photos of both patterns in the shop listings.
Again, both patterns are available NOW in our Etsy shop.


  1. Can I just tell you how thankful I am that the Breeann pattern goes up to a 16? Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I still sew for my 14 year old but it's become quite the challenge to find patterns that 1. appeal to her and 2. fit her. Thank you!:)

    I hope your girls had a great first day of school.

    1. Thank you, Cindy! Yes, we try to do a few tween/teen patterns a year because I also have a daughter in that age/size range. Enjoy the pattern!

    OMG! Your girls are getting so big and beautiful! I've been following your blog for several years now so I feel like I've seen them grow up. :) I just bought both those patterns and I also downloaded the grade numbers to use with my new Silhouette machine. YIPPEE! I love your stuff!


    1. Awww... thanks so much Annie! Enjoy all your new goodies. :)
