We fell in love with the general shape of the Miss Limestone right from the start but went back and forth on whether it should be a coat or a cardigan. In the end we decided there HAD to be a way to make it work as either one. As a coat it works well… Continue reading The Miss Limestone Coat/Cardigan
We have Birch and with its relaxed fit and quick construction my own closet is starting to show that Tundra has some competition.
This post is geared specifically towards the Miss Haze and things that matter to the junior miss size range.
For quite a while now we've had people ask us to please make a jogger in the Junior Miss size range (since we already have the Railway Joggers in our girls size range).

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...
