During this round of testing the Miss Fern skirt, we really learned a lot about how much the fabric dictates the fit of this waistband. I'm going to point out the big areas of consideration and I have some general tips including a gathering video down below. Let's get into this.
The Pike 1 or 2pc Swimsuit
After taking a year off of swim design we're back this spring with TWO swim patterns. This blog post is all about the Pike and has quite a few tips and hacks you'll want to know about.
The Heron Shirt
The Heron shirt is another super simple and remarkably quick make. People might need to start reconsidering labelling Sofiona as only "complicated" makes. LOL
Is Birch the New Tundra??
We have Birch and with its relaxed fit and quick construction my own closet is starting to show that Tundra has some competition.
Annnnd Here Comes Miss Haze… Fashionably Late
This post is geared specifically towards the Miss Haze and things that matter to the junior miss size range.
A Woven Dress Called Haze
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...
The Tundra Top
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.
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.
The Cat’s Out of the Bag and We’re Calling It: Lynx
While this cold shoulder top is designed for wovens, this pattern is best suited to those with some good drape and flow (think rayons, voiles, tencels, etc).
Raven Meet Rhubarb
If you've seen the Raven dress, you'll recognize the Rhubarb. Or vice versa??? Long ago now, when I first started dreaming this pattern up, it was this knit sweater dress style that was first in my mind. Then things just kept going, I thought about woven versions and the Raven was born and released first. Now I'm SO excited to finally have this version, the Rhubarb, also available and it is everything I dreamed of!
