Modkid Swim Cover-up

I LOVE Patty Young's "Sewing Modkid Style" book.  Patty is the "Queen" of children's knit patterns.  Can her patterns and techniques be any easier?  I don't think so!  If you have little girls to sew for, you would enjoy this book.  I just love looking thru it; it is lovely from cover to cover.  

This little dress is so cute!  It only took me a couple hours of sewing to make this.  This outfit sews up exactly as pictured in the book.  I already have another one in turqoise cut out to sew for my other daughter.    

I love the kangaroo pocket on the front.  What a fun dress to make!


  1. Thanks Cindy! My daughter loved wearing it all day yesterday. I'm still excited how nice it turned out.

  2. Cute! My 7 year old would love it.

  3. Ruth, you should definitely give this one a try then! It's becoming my daughter's "house" dress. LOL That tells me it is super comfy.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I appreciate you taking the time to comment and share your thoughts! I enjoy connecting with others who share my love and passion for sewing.
