Sewing MODKID Style by Patty Young. I liked the pattern so much I made one for Mommy too. The pattern in Patty's book suggests you use all knit fabric, but I've liked throwing a quilting cotton into the middle section because a) I have sooo much quilting cotton and b) it is cuter than the knit fabric I have.I have learned a lot about sewing knits lately so much so that I am going to be doing a knit dress for myself. Stay tuned.
But back to these cute creations... For the top on the far right, I did use all knits. The ruffle fabric is a knit. I didn't sew a bottom band on this one. I think that style will work better on a 2-yr-old. You can buy your own ruffle fabric at (you guessed it!) rufflefabric.com, but you can also find some colors on fabric.com at a better price. I picked this up at my local quilt shop using a Groupon. This project is also a nice way to use up my button stash.
