Pattern Mashing is when you combine 2 or more patterns to create a new look. 

Whether this is your first mashing experience or mashing is your jam, the Going Places Dress is the perfect for a fast & easy sewing project.

You can combine both the Spellbound & Wanderlust bodices with the fitted Going Places skirt section to create a fitted dress with armholes. Go sleeveless or add a sleeve of your choice.
