HI y’all! It’s Kara from Sweeter Than it Seams. I’m so excited to be talking about the Rachel by Modkid today. The most exciting part about this dress for me is that it has a collar! Yay! I’ll talk more about the options later. The Modkid Rachel is a knit dress with a ruffled skirt that can be made in sizes 2T-10. It has a drop waist with a waistband and long or short sleeves. You can also make a mock turtleneck or neck binding.

If you are comfortable sewing with knits, I would rate this pattern as fairly easy. The instructions are very well written and laid out in a logical sequence. I like that the instructions are truly step by step and there is no guessing involved.
This dress is a VERY quick sew as well. It only took me about an hour to put it together. The ruffles take the longest, and there isn’t that much to ruffle. This can easily be sewn during nap time. Have I mentioned how much I love knit? Well, I do! I used to only sew with wovens but now I jump at any chance I get to sew with knits. This dress is so quick and easy and I will absolutely make it again.
Hey guys! I love knit dresses for my daughter as they are so comfortable, but depending on your fabric, they can still be dressy. The Rachel, from Modkid is a great knit dress. It has a fun tulip skirt with a ruffle, and a tuxedo ruffle on the bodice. My daughter saw it and was instantly excited for it, so that's always a plus!
Let's talk a bit about the pattern and the options you have.

I highly recommend any Modkid patterns. There is a level of professionalism in them that is wonderful and you can tell that Patty really knows what she is doing.
