Women's Highlander Dolman / Solstice Wrap Mash-up

April 14, 2017

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.

Juniper Joggers - Adding a Snap Placket

January 11, 2017

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).
