Road Trip time with MODKID!

This stop on the Road Trip pattern bundle Tour is MODKID and this gorgeous kimono wrap!

This pattern is based on your own measurements so you get the PERFECT fit and length you want! Don't worry about the math, even for my post baby having math challenged brain sewing late at night it was EASY math and simple, nothing harder than addition and measuring a few places! (Jeanine speaking to clarify, Carla is awesome at math. I am not)

The directions and pictures to guide you are very clear and to the point. This pattern is also a very quick sew! A couple of hours I had had gone from washed fabric by the yard to a finished kimono! I also followed Patty's tip of tacking down the tie so I don't lose it and doing the belt loop option.

I used a cotton lawn to make my kimono and love the light weigh flowy feel it has, perfect for a summer wrap up at the beach or for wearing at the pool. 

(Paired with the vanessa top)

So a quick recap:

pattern #1 on the tour is the Betz White Duffle:
Betz White Road Tripper Duffle sewn by Kate H2
I just ADORE those scalloped looking pockets!

Pattern # 2 is the Kimono wrap

and pattern # 3 is coming up in July and it is from Carla!!! And Not to tease you toooooo badly, but this latest Sisboom pattern is going to be a summer staple! I made 5 in one week! and The pattern testers are talking of  starting an intervention group since we all keep on sewing this pattern up!
