Goober Pea Designs just released an add-on for the Gold River Adventure Dress (included free with the original pattern, or available separately soon) that allows you to mash the overall top (bibs/straps) with any kids pants pattern with a stretchy knit waistband! Taryn from A Sparkly Baby patterns and I decided to team up and test it. Our testers used both her BA Bottoms pattern (a snug fitting pant like leggings, but looser at the ankle) and the Palauchos (a wide leg pant). Have a look at the adorable results below!! Most are the BA Bottoms – the Palauchos are the three on the top left.

GPD overall mashup inspiration

What you need to achieve this mashup:

-Gold River Overall Mashup Tutorial and Pattern Pieces file (available with the Gold River Adventure Dress, or on its own!)

-the BA Bottoms OR kids Paulauchos by A Sparkly Baby Patterns

The Gold River Overall Mashup Tutorial contains all the instructions you need to mash the patterns together. Please note, many of our testers sized up the BA bottoms (even sometimes 2-3 sizes up) to achieve a looser look, as they are designed to fit quite tight, like leggings.

I hope you enjoy this fun pattern mashup!
