Juniper Sewing Pattern Hack

Juniper Hack: Ruffles and Elastic Bottom

One of my favorite things to do is modify my patterns. There are so many ways to switch them up with just some simple changes. Today I’m going to show you how to add this cute ruffle detail and elastic bottom to the Juniper Top and Dress. You could choose to add just ruffles, just the elastic bottom, or mix and match between the other Juniper options–front […]

Free Anna Dress Pattern

Anna Pinafore Dress Free Pattern

I grew up on The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, so when my daughter started to get the princess bug, I was pretty excited to have an excuse to sew all the princess things. Her current obsession is anything Anna & Elsa, so I made her a version of the dress toddler Anna wore in the movie for our recent trip to Disney […]

A Button Hadley for Layering

I started working on a sleeve add-on for the Hadley Top, Tunic & Dress pattern, but for now it’s been pushed back a few projects. But, I have a fun way to use the Hadley in colder weather!

Puppy Costume Free Pattern

Animal Costume Tutorial and Free 2T Pattern

I love Halloween! The candy, the decorations, the costumes….the candy. This year both my kids chose their own costume and my daughter wanted to be a puppy. And surprisingly for a two year old, she didn’t waver in her decision even a few weeks later. My son on the other hand will change his mind a million times until I tell him it’s too late. So […]
