ADV and Sylva Onesie Binding Tutorial

Ook al ben ik uit de rompers, ik vind ze ontzettend leuk om te maken en als (kraam-)cadeautje te geven. In deze gastblog beschrijf ik een andere manier van het aanzetten van de biaisband bij rompers.

Even though I don’t have kids that wear onesies anymore, I love making them as gifts.
In this guest post I show another way to attach the binding to the bottom of the onesies.

In de beschrijving van zowel de ADV als de Sylva romper wordt beschreven hoe je de biaisband aan de onderzijde vastzet wanneer het lijfje aan één zijde gesloten is. Na het aanzetten van het biaisband sluit je dan het lijf waarna je de zijnaad naar achteren vast zet. Ik vind het mooier wanneer de onderzijde allemaal uit 1 stuk lijkt te zijn, daarom zet ik de biaisband op een andere manier aan.

Sylva Onesie – RELEASE

Almost two months ago miss Rainbow was born. Two months before her birth we released our first onesie pattern and today we are releasing the second. Today, we are releasing the Sylva Onesie, the little sister of our popular Sylva Shirt and Tunic. The Sylva Onesie has the same symmetrical V shaped neckline that will make dressing your little one easy. In contrast to the Sylva shirt, the Sylva Onesie is a unisex pattern. The unique V shape is suitable for both girls and boys. The Sylva onesie comes in both short and long sleeves.

Let’s start out with some pictures of Miss Rainbow herself. We showed her off on Instagram already, but we did not show her on the blog yet. Both onesies have extra special fabric. You will not have to guess why the rainbow colored fabric is special, but the grey one is extra fun because in that same fabric Anne wore a Vallis during pregnancy. A onesie in general is perfect for using treasured fabric due to the size of the garment, but the color block of the Sylva makes the pattern extra suitable, because even smaller fabric remnants can be turned into unique garments.

Summer Solis Suit

Swimsuit season is here! Well, in Arizona it is pretty much “swimsuit season” all year.  My daughter lives in the pool during summer.  I like to make her suits that can also function as a summer outfits because of the numerous 110+ degrees F days that we have.

One of my all time favorite patterns is the Solis dress from Sofilantjes.  I wanted to make that into a swim top, so that my daughter can have a comfortable/practical suit, but also super cute!

It’s been a long time coming…

Ever since the Solis Girl’s pattern released a lot of you have been asking for an adult version and while we had our doubts if this would work for adults, we now know you are right to have asked. This dress is amazing! Not only is this pattern amazing, but the results were awesome! We had such a great and sweet group of testers. So nice and supportive and wow, so many great results. They all look so amazing.

The Women’s Solis Tunic and Dress looks like the kids version, only it’s made to hug our beautiful curves. Since not every one of us looks great in a natural waist slim fitted bodice (and some of us are pregnant) we added an empire waist bodice. With these two bodice lengths we can all wear this dress. No matter how tall, short, full figured or skinny you are. Our testers have proven this.

I can hear you thinking, will it look good on me? Well, you can see for yourself. We’ll show you some pictures. Lets start with the natural waist, circle skirt version.

Cessim shirt RELEASE

With the changing season we felt it was time for another boy/unisex pattern and it is a fun one! The Cessim Shirt is appropriate if you are moving into or out of winter.  The Cessim is a relaxed fit shirt which is comfortable during warm weather and suitable for thicker fabrics in winter. With so many options you can almost never make the same shirt twice!

There are four basic body colorblocks, three sleeve lengths and three neckline options. This pattern could easily become a staple in your kids wardrobe because it is both perfect for using scraps and/or panel fabrics.  But, let’s take it a bit slower and take a detailed at all the options one by one.

Let’s start with the color block options for the bodice. The first option is perfect for  beginners. The body is one piece which also makes it a lovely option for panel fabrics. The seam is at the back of the shirt.
