20 patterns to sew cool knits for the modern girl

Gone are the days of impeccably dressed little girls with their perfect pigtails and stiff, frilly dresses. These days kids lead active, busy lifestyles—running from gymnastics to soccer practice or from a play date to the grocery store with mom. There isn't much time for dressing to the nines. Today's active girl needs a wardrobe that is not only stylish and exciting to wear, but that moves, runs, jumps, and bends with her life.

Sewing MODKID Style offers all of that. Each project, created by designer and mom Patty Young, features fun and comfortable knit fabrics that easily stretch and move with the busiest little lady. These style-savvy designs can be customized to fit toddlers (sizes 2T–5T) or girls (sizes 6–10). All of the garments are made without zippers, buttons, or snaps and can be pulled on quickly by the tiniest of hands. Plus, all of the designs are interchangeable so kids can mix and match pieces to create a style completely their own. Projects include:

  • Rosy headband

  • Fingerless gloves

  • Leg warmers

  • Yoga pants

  • Bubble skirt

  • Banded tank top

  • Not-so-plain tee

  • Contrast v-neck sweater

  • Bloom dress

  • Swimsuit

  • And much more

Proving that style and comfort do go hand in hand, Sewing MODKID Style gives you everything you need to create a wardrobe full of whimsy for every girl in your life.
