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.
The Dandelion recently had new life breathed into it with the Aspen Romper add-on and I realized that this was one pattern I wanted to extend into the next size range.
While I was preparing to put the Sturgeon Swimsuit into testing a couple months ago Sherri shared some cool inspiration pictures with me that she'd found online and really liked.
