The Summer Dawn Wrap Dress is very dear to my heart as it was designed for my sister, Summer Dawn, to get ready in on her wedding day. I used the short dress (View A) for myself and the other bridesmaids to get ready in and created her gorgeous dress by a simple mod on the short dress.
I chose to mash the Women's Highlander Dolman and Solstice Wrap during Mash-up March and love how it turned out!! I'm always on the look out for new trends and design ideas. This time my inspiration came to me while I was at the gym of all places. Running on the treadmill, thinking of Mash-up March ideas and a girl so happened to hop on a bike right in front of me and she had on a top very similar to this. I knew immediately I had to recreate it!
The Rhapsody Joggers are fitted through the calves so it's important to have the right amount of stretch for this pattern. There is a stretch gauge located on the front pant leg pattern piece which you can use to measure the stretch percentage of your fabric.
The Baby Juniper Joggers include bonus mashup pieces to be used with the Baby Emerie Romper and Baby Valley Daze! These patterns can be easily pulled up so they don't require snaps for 9M-2T; however, sizes NB-6M of the Emerie Romper must have snaps since the neckline is to small to pull up. Or you may just prefer snaps to make diaper changes easier. I'll show you how to add a snap panel to the Juniper Joggers (this tutorial may also be applied to any short or pant rompers).
It has been quite the year here at SSDl!! Let's take a look at all we have accomplished this year.
Walking into the Disney Store a few months ago, Harbor immediately ran over to the new Princess Elena of Avalor section. The new princess' dress immediately caught my eye as it seemed to be the perfect mash of two SSD patterns, the Midsummer Dream and Festival Skirt!
