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.
It's swimsuit season! (Or so I've heard.....we DID just get another dumping of snow earlier this week.) Last year we didn't actually have a new swim pattern and it felt a little weird so this year we decided to make two: The Minnow and the Pike! You can read more about the Pike Swimsuit on… Continue reading Minnow Swimsuit
This pattern is personal to me and is motivated by the desire to give my growing girls the comfort and protection they need as they navigate into womanhood. Some girls are super excited and just can't wait for their period and others dread or even fear this new stage. The last thing they want is embarrassing stains on their sheets or mattress.

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 Wild Blueberry and Wild Strawberry bralettes (also available bundled here) are a little different from the rest… Continue reading The Wildberries
The Dandelion recently had new life breathed into it with the Aspen Romper add-on and I realized that this was one pattern I wanted to extend into the next size range.
While I was preparing to put the Sturgeon Swimsuit into testing a couple months ago Sherri shared some cool inspiration pictures with me that she'd found online and really liked. I immediately asked (begged?) her to run with the ideas and turn them into a swim cover-up. At the same time she was neck-deep in… Continue reading Picking Raspberry
