Seriously, is this not ADORABLE!? Patty Young has inspired me once again with the Asian-inspired shirt and sewing pattern, Kyoko! http://www.thefabricfairy.com/index.php/retail/kyoko-boutique-sewing-pattern-for-modkid-by-patty-young.html Little bit funky but so so chic! I can’t wait to get on the sewing machine and try making these for my girls out of some of their favorite Japanese fabrics (although I love it so much in Patty's own fabrics that it is tempting just to replicate what she has done...).
What is also great about this pattern is that it is loose-fitting and no need for buttons, zippers or snaps. I am sure many of you can attest to a busy parent’s schedule…How efficient is this?! Pull it up, pull it over…let’s go!
Getting the pattern scoop from Patty Young at Quilt Market She was one of my first customers, and I am so proud of all that she has accomplished!

First thing Saturday morning we hit the market show floor which, by the way, probably spanned at least a football field! It was HUGE!! Since this was our first market, we really didn't realize the scope until we arrived! We figured we would start at one end and methodically work our way through. Well, after only working our way through 5 aisles in 5 hours we realized we would have to move a little faster and stop oohing and aahing at everything we saw! It's hard though when everything is so saturated with color and is begging to be looked at and touched!
