This post is brought to you by Modern Yardage. I received fabric in exchange for this post, but all opinions are my own.
Have y’all heard of Modern Yardage? It’s a new fabric printing company. Since they print their own fabrics on demand, they can offer tons of designer prints, and they print just what you need.
I love that they can also offer the same print in several different scales – tiny, small, medium and large. I used two prints from the Poppy Hop collection – Dance in blue, medium sized, and the Pillow Panel in Blue. The pillow panel is an 18×20 panel. When I originally picked my fabrics, I thought I’d make something for baby girl, but then I got them and decided the scale of the pillow print would work better on me. Plus I wanted to keep it.
Since I was originally thinking about a cross back top for baby girl, and it’s been soooo hot and humid here, I decided to try the crossback top on myself. In a more modest way than I would have put on her – don’t want to go showing off that mommy muffin top.
I finished the edges with bias tape since that’s been my thing for the last few months and because I was trying to use every possible inch of that pillow panel.
Oh, and did I mention I’ll have a free pattern for this on Monday? And that since it’s such an easy fit, it will probably work for teens/tweens too? Yup, come back on Monday to get the scoop. And in the meantime check out Modern Yardage – there are TONS of other cute prints.
