13 Days of Modkid Halloween // Day13

Friday, October 31, 2014



Patty here. I hope you have enjoyed our 13 Days of Modkid Halloween series. I had a blast looking at all your awesome creations! On this last day of our series, I am here to share another one of my spooky creations...

My oldest daughter, Sophie, will be 13 in just a few short weeks, and what do teenagers love? Zombies! So, I wasn't the least bit surprised when she asked me to make her a zombie costume. We had discussed a few other ideas... Day of the Dead Sugar Skull made with our Frida pattern was one of them... but she kept coming back to ZOMBIE, so I had to oblige. Of course, I had to modify one of our patterns for the costume and I am so happy I did! Check out the results (full details are at the end of this post).






Pattern: I used the Melanie Misses pattern, size XS, and left the sleeves and hems unfinished. The over-dress is also the Melanie Misses but cut 2 sizes bigger and without sleeves. I left all edges unfinished and shredded the bottom. Psst... this pattern is also available in little kids sizes.

Fabric: The underdress is made with Monster Shreds and the overdress is made with Bloody Lace, both found at Jo-Ann Fabrics.

Accessories: Sophie is wearing these awesome Halloween tights purchased at Target. Make-up and fake blood are also from Target.

Thank you so much for following along on our 13 Days of Modkid Halloween! I leave you with a fun little clip I created to celebrate the season:

Today, we are visiting a past Halloween costume Patty created for Sophie. We get to reminisce a little before Patty impresses us with another spooky creation tomorrow! This witch costume started as the Penny Pattern. Patty lengthened the dress to the floor and cut the hem into peaks. No hemming required!! You can find more photos in the link below.

What do you get when you mix cowgirls and characters? Jessie and Sheriff Callie of course! Kelly Gifford is the creator behind the next two costumes. I'm guessing this cowgirl skirt using the Modkid Julia skirt go tons of wear even after Halloween.

If you aren't familiar with Sheriff Callie, Kelly gives a little explanation in her blog post. I love how she combined some details of the Julia Skirt with the Avery Dress pattern.

If your kids love dressing up as their favorite TV characters, then this post is for you. Doc McStuffins is loved around here, and Kari's version using the Modkid Addison dress is cute as can be.



And, you just don't get much sweeter than this Pebbles version of the Modkid Baby Hannah

How about creating a costume that is both functional and playful!?! The Modkid Lil' Chef pattern is just that! Whether playing pretend, being Mommy's kitchen helper, or dressing up, the three piece set is a great little project. Maybe, your little baker could collect Halloween treats in a pot!

13 Days of Modkid Halloween // Day 8

Friday, October 24, 2014


When we first announced the "13 Days of Modkid Halloween", I showed you my youngest daughter's clown costume created with the Modkid Bailey. Today, I'm bringing you another member of our circus in the form of a tight rope walker (or "type" rope walker as she keeps saying).


I created with top using the Modkid Ava pattern. I modified the bodice to include a corset style feature. 


In case you would like to recreate this look, I've got a little tutorial to show you my process. It's a fun little pattern flip weather it's for a costume or not. You'll need the Ava Pattern to begin. 


First, cut the bodice pattern piece 1/2" wider at the fold.


Next, mark two parallel lines 5/8" apart. The first line is 1 7/8" from the fold. Repeat for the opposite side of the fold.


It's super hard to see in the above photo, but add 1 1/2" interfacing strips on the wrong side of the bodice where you drew the parallel lines.


Press the bodice to the front right sides together at the line closest to the fold.

 '
Press the bodice to the back wrong sides together at the outside line creating a pleat. Repeat for the opposite side of the fold.


Mark eyelet locations centered in the pleat. The eyelets should be about 1 1/2" apart and 1" from the top and bottom edge. Your spacing may vary depending on the size you are making.


Insert the eyelets at the markings. I used one of my favorite scrapbooking tools, called a Crop-A-Dile.


Finally, baste the folds in place at the top and bottom seams and continue with the remaining pattern instructions for the Ava Top. When your top is complete, thread a shoelace or ribbon through the eyelets. Done!

Keep sharing your Modkid Halloween creations!!

13 Days of Modkid Halloween // Day 7

Thursday, October 23, 2014


I love how we get to take a little trip down memory lane by featuring some of the older Modkid patterns during the 13 Days of Modkid Halloween. Do you remember the Emma pattern? It's the perfect choice for a fairy or Tinker Bell! The pattern even includes a little petal purse you could use for collecting Halloween treats. 

This combination of silk, lace, and voile makes a perfectly sweet flower fairy. Check out the link below for more great photos.

Even if a costume isn't the most practical choice for you, that doesn't mean you can't get creative making a cute Halloween dress. Here are some inspiration photos for non-costume Halloween Modkids.

The fabrics and applique on this groove Halloween Riley are a real show stopper.

Pink and black are not your typical Halloween colors! I love how this Holly dress is so pretty and spooky at the same time.

Not only has the Modkid Kyoko pattern been an overall pattern favorite for years, but it also seems to be a favorite for Halloween costumes. The style lends itself to so many different looks. Talking about possibilities, the Kyoko comes in girl's, teen's, and women's sizes.

It's a new week full of Modkid Halloween inspiration! Who doesn't love Minnie Mouse?!? Here are a couple looks to make those little Minnie fans smile.

Anna Larson gave a fun Asian spin on a Minnie outfit with the Modkid Kyoko pattern.

If you need a quick sew for a Halloween costume, the Hailey pattern is a great pick. Kari's Minnie styling is perfectly sweet and can be worn well after the holiday.
