For many years, since our girls were little, we've loved making special dresses for them to wear for Christmas. Personally, I love taking it a little "over the top" by adding multiple layered skirts, using fancy fabrics and/or adding Hot Fix Swarovski crystals for extra sparkle. All the parties, concerts, etc. create the perfect excuse… Continue reading Sofiona Holiday Style
Well, people asked and we listened! Or more accurately, we "premonitioned". The Miss Bonfire hoodie was already in the works when we released the girls Bonfire version so you have no idea how hard it was to keep that to ourselves for the last few months!
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.

Who doesn't love a nice cozy sweater? With this in mind and in keeping with the Sofiona style of fun angles and details, I set out to design one. For any new project we usually begin with a basic vision and a name. I had a vision, but I needed a name! I wanted something that would evoke those cozy feelings, but also sort of work together with the Rocky Shore Tights name (because this hoodie was meant to pair perfectly with them). After some deliberation we settled on "Bonfire". Can you picture it? A cozy bonfire by the rocky shore on a cool Canadian evening?!?!?!
With the 3 possible locations for the flounces (or not), this is where you can make some choices that suit your style. I, personally, love the way I can make matching dresses without fully matching by choosing only certain flounces or using trim instead.
This narwhal swimsuit comes in 2 basic versions: One-Piece with halter neckline and laced straps in the back; or Two-Piece with high waisted pieced bottoms and halter neckline/racerback style top.
