Originally we designed the Sidekick Wrap Skirt with our Crossroads Denim line in mind. The original design was unlined with raw edges. But then we received our Vintage Made Modern sample fabric and knew that we had to make a cotton plaid version.
So, we went back to the drawing board and altered the pattern to include a cotton option. This one is fully lined with finished edges. We used the turquoise and pink plaid for our main fabric and it is lined with the turquoise dictionary. It’s a total back-to-school skirt – So cute!
The Contemporary Kimono is a new twist on a classic style. This clean, modern jacket has flattering long lines and a loose fit that can hide a number of flaws. This jacket is quick to make and features a neckline and sleeve band that can be used as a design feature.
The Bedtime Boots slipper pattern offers 4 different options for creating adorable boots for your family – although, the Bedtime Boots are for adults only. The Sleep Time Slippers has the child’s version of the slippers. One of our favorite options for making the boots is to create a quilting pair using cottons. Of course we had to make them with our Vintage Made Modern fabric (coming next month!!). For this pair we paired (ha! see what I did there?) the pink plaid with the pink dictionary print. Don’t they look so cozy??
When we were working on our new line of patterns we tried to think of the most comfortable, but flattering garment. Of course, a Classic Caftan came to mind! It’s such a great wardrobe staple. Easy to wear, easy to layer and it always looks chic.
The Modern Gored Skirt offers the opportunity to mix and match different cotton prints in one skirt, creating a fun patchwork look. We knew we wanted to use our new Vintage Made Modern Centennial Celebration line for the skirt but wasn’t sure what prints and which colors. We finally decided on the cream/black colorway because it creates a neutral skirt that can be worn with almost anything, but still has the interest of the different patterns.
