Nivalis Womens Tunic and Dress RELEASE

It’s time. The last few months we have been working hard drafting a basic women’s block to start off our women’s pattern line. We made many changes trying to perfect the fit and finally we are satisfied. The block resulted in the most asked for pattern of this season: A Women’s Nivalis.

This pattern is our first of many women’s patterns to come and we love it. The Nivalis Women comes in sizes 34 to 54. Not only does it feel great, it is very flattering on all sizes.

To make sure you get the perfect fit we added a few tutorials to our instructions so you will be able to easily alter this pattern for your body. This resulted in a total of 4 tutorials on how to:
– Adjust the bust
– Adjust the waist
– Adjust the length
– Adjust the shoulder
All tutorials have graphics to make the adjustments easy to understand. We added the extra tutorials because in the end, we are all built differently.

ADVtee uit 1 paneel + Tutorial met alternatieve V-hals

Ik vind het best een uitdaging om leuke patronen te vinden voor mijn stoere boy, dus ik hoefde niet lang na te denken of ik dit patroon zou aanschaffen. De ADVtee van Sofilantjes is een heerlijk patroontje om te maken, voor jongens én meiden. Dit t-shirt heeft zo veel leuke mogelijkheden, met bijvoorbeeld colorblock en een borstzakje of de kraag met drukknoopjes. En met de lange/korte mouw optie is het een patroon dat je het hele jaar door kunt gebruiken. Leuk om te maken en om te dragen, de shirts die ik maakte naar dit patroon zijn mijn zoontjes favoriete shirts.

Al een aantal keer deelde ik mijn naaisels van de ADVtee uit 1 paneel. Ik vind het zonde om zo’n mooi paneel in stukken te knippen als ik het op exact dezelfde plaats weer aan elkaar naai. Omdat ik er veel vragen over kreeg hoe ik dat gedaan had, heb ik Anne gevraagd of ik er een tutorial over mocht maken. En ze ging akkoord (leuk)!!! Bij dit t-shirt heb ik een alternatieve wijze gebruikt om de V-hals te maken, dus die komt er als bonus bij. Laten we beginnen!

ADVtee patroon van Sofilantjes, ik maakte maat 128 en dat is qua breedte wel het maximaal haalbare voor de afmetingen van dit paneel.
Paneel retro scooter, 83 x 83 cm (ik kreeg deze van, ja ik ben een bofkont)

Het gebruikelijke aan naaigerij: schaar, spelden, naaimachine en/of lockmachine.
Een leuke stof voor mouwen en boord. Ik gebruikte french terry in jeanslook, gekocht op het Stoffenspektakel.
Ik ga er voor het gemak in deze tutorial van uit dat je het patroon al hebt geprint en aan elkaar geplakt.


Stap 1: Neem het patroon over in de juiste maat. Let er hierbij op dat je het hele voorpand nodig hebt én het hele achterpand. We knippen deze niet op de vouw. (Ik knipte een extra half rugpand omdat ik er al 1 had)

Sylva Top and Tunic Release

Ready, set, gooooooo. Ready to release this awesome looking, very quick sew, beginner friendly new pattern. The Sylva top and Tunic.

We choose the name Sylva in Latin. It is a translation for wood, woodland, forest. We love the forest and this tunic and top would be perfect to wear to the forest. It’s the perfect pattern for mid seasons. Like the one we are in right now and with the three different sleeve options it can be adjusted to all seasons. Plus there is a little extra ease in there to sew it up in an heavier knit if you wish…

Options? Yes, ma’am. We always have options. Want to see them? No problem. Let’s start with a summary of options shall we?You get:
* three different sleeve lengths
* two neckline options
* two bodice lengths

First up. The V-neck option. My favorite and the most simple option there is. This option is beginner friendly. And if you do not create a front and back with your choosen fabric, the perfect option for your child to get dressed by themselves. There will not be a front or back so getting dressed will never be easier for them… I see a win win situation.

Cicero Jackets all around

In between all the Orbis Skinny Harem love we are releasing another pattern. One for the boys in our life and the girls of course, because girls can wear jackets too. A boy in a dress is a different story (unless they are 2, when you are 2 years old you can wear a pink princess dress or you can run around butt naked and still be cute… ). Back to the Cirero Jacket.

Cicero stands for Frost. Frost works for our time of year. So we needed a nice warm jacket to keep the littles safe from the cold, but  it needed to be a cool jacket. One that stands out. So we created option A.
