We have Birch and with its relaxed fit and quick construction my own closet is starting to show that Tundra has some competition.
This post is geared specifically towards the Miss Haze and things that matter to the junior miss size range.
For quite a while now we've had people ask us to please make a jogger in the Junior Miss size range (since we already have the Railway Joggers in our girls size range). The Trail Joggers were our answer to that request and we decided to make it in both the Junior Miss (size 0-20)… Continue reading Trail Joggers
This newest pattern is another woven dress for the store. Woven dresses have never been the “Sofiona thing”, but every once in awhile we get in the mood for a dress. This one was inspired by linen...
