Secret Pockets (AKA Aubrey)

Quick disclosure .....


I just LOVE this dress.
The Aubrey, from Modkid. It has just sooooooo many amazing features.



A quick sew - so I can make lots of them in not too much time.


Knit fabric and no closures so it's great for independent dressing


Easily adjustable for length (I mean SERIOUSLY easy, the pattern pieces join at just the right spot for easy adjustment).



Really quick pattern assembly. I haven't timed it, but the assembly seems a lot quicker that a standard tiled pattern.


3 sleeve length options(long, 3/4 and short). Making this a perfect season transition garment, and suitable all year round. Even in an Aussie summer, when sun protection is important

Great for playing and having fun. Although Miss 5 will be wearing little shorts under this in Summer (She just likes climbing and being upside down too much)


Is it just me, or is the vintage/retro styling just so adorable.


POCKETS!!!!!!!
A super secret kangaroo pockets, hidden in the construction of the front panel.



The girls had so much fun with this photo shoot. It's always more fun when you have a friend.

The green and grey dress is in cotton jersey. The blue and purple is in polyester interlock.  I must admit the jersey is much nicer to sew with, but the interlock has that bit more stretch and is easier to wear.  Which makes up for it being absolutely painful to sew with - catching on dry skin and slipping under the needle.

The pattern has options for a bound neckline or a neck band.  These are the bound version. I used cotton lycra for the binding on both versions.

The pattern is available via Modkid's Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/473909985/aubrey-knit-dress-pdf-downloadable
You might also want to check out Modkid's pattern group on Facebook. Lots of lovely people over there. https://www.facebook.com/groups/302539649923319/

I received a free copy of this pattern for testing, but if I didn't have it, it would be one I'd purchase.

Lovely play proof dresses. I see the pocket is perfect for storing popsicles hehe

Now that would be messy! They're actually lollipops, but were plenty sticky enough.
