Over the last year we've definitely gone back and forth on the idea of designing some "basics" for our pattern lineup. (We tend to get more excited by the more "involved" patterns.) The Spruce skirt/skort has been on my mind for a while though, and with our recent release of a couple more athletic style… Continue reading Spruce Skirt & Skort
A long time ago I had this idea for a pair of work-out style tights for Sofiona. But it took Trish suggesting that we work on a small activewear collection for the new year that forced me to focus attention on them properly. Of course, a year later a few other ideas have altered my original draft,
Cattail was first drafted as a tank top to pair with the Tamarack Tights that Sherri had been planning since before Sofiona Designs first launched. As we got close to being ready to post our tester calls Sherri looked at the tank and said "I think this should be a (maxi) dress too". She was… Continue reading The Cattail Tank/Dress
Who here can NOT stand twisted elastic bands?? I see all the hands up. I'm with you. It's ridiculous and annoying and too often becomes a piece of clothing that doesn't get worn. We want clothing that we can be comfy in and don't need to adjust every so often.

We're almost exactly one year from the official opening ceremonies of Sofiona Designs and one of our first patterns was the Arctic Fox Housecoat. Here we are at the start of our second year and with a new beginning we have the Miss Arctic Fox for you in our brand new size range.
We are here!! I have been planning this event for MONTHS. Before we even headed out for the summer camping season I starting contacting bloggers and sponsors because I knew I wanted to make this special. I was so excited when people were not only happy to be a part of this, but downright excited!… Continue reading Blog Tour Kick-off
I’m so excited to introduce the Balsam Bag from Sofiona Designs! This pattern has been a true labor of love, and has taken months of work from many minds and several hands to be brought into existence.
Welcome to the fastest Sofiona sew thus far!! We are starting to be known as "clean, but not quick" and I'm totally good with that! But I also know that people want a quick make and it's been a regular conversation around Sofiona headquarters that we need to keep the quick sews in mind.
