Did you hear? We are adding a third little Sofilantje to our family and little Sofilantjes needs to be dressed. So we are starting a baby pattern line.
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.

I can’t believe it is already the end of March. Feels like yesterday this year started and this is our second pattern this year already too. Time is flying by so fast. Only because we are having fun right?!
Speaking of fun. Spring is coming (although our weather is still in winter mode). We are sewing for spring, summer and yes, fall and winter too. We added so many sleeve options, you can sew for the whole year. This dress can be sewn in a day. It’s that easy.
So let’s meet the Foras Dress.
A fun dress with a beautiful feminine colorblock that is in line with some great pockets. It’s a simple but fun design. Let me show you.

We are doing it two more times this year! Yes, you are reading this correctly. Two. In 2017 we will release a pattern fit for a king and a pattern fit for a queen. The queen’s pattern is in testing right now, but because we know you have limited sewing time, let’s release the king’s pattern shall we? You are going to love this one. Allow me to introduce, the Regem (King) Shirt.
You asked for a boy pattern didn’t you? Well, here it is. The boy in this home is excited. So are the boys that were testing this pattern. Who can blame them? It’s such a great pattern and such a nice fit on them.

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.

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!

It has been very quiet here. We took a little time off to enjoy family and friends and to find new inspiration. We found it!
After summer already started we decided to give you one more summer dress. A pattern that you can sew in half a day. We love this one.
The Montis Tunic and Dress comes in sizes 12M/80 to 14y/164 and will be released in Dutch, French and English. There are two bodice options and there is one skirt option in two lengths.
Option A is a lined bodice with 3 straps. The front has one shoulder and one strap showing. The back is where you get to add the fun colors.
