I said no every time someone asked me if the Tamarack tights would be moved into the junior miss size chart. And I meant it, actually. I didn't think I could do it, to be honest, and yet here we are and I feel like our first foray into junior miss tights is making me feel more confident. I need to remember these moments are part of a journey and what overwhelms me today may not be so intimidating in a year or so. Timing really is everything.
I feel like these latest 2 releases finish off a year or more of work. Even though I've worked on other patterns throughout this time, Clover and Rose Hip have been on my work "desk" the whole time. The girls' version came out in Spring of 2020 and now we have the junior miss versions. I'm ready to relive some of my less tragic 80's moments in this slightly retro style.
Small secret. When I released Tundra I kinda brushed it off as a "meh" pattern that a few people might like. I had no idea it was going to be so well loved! So I decided to go ahead and make a Miss Tundra.
When I got a message from one mom in particular who thanked me for a pattern that brought a smile to her teen’s face, I wanted to make this happen for more of these girls.
