1- I draw the pocket on the front.
2- I transfer and cut out the pocket.
3- I cut out the opening of the pocket on the front.

4- I calculate the pocket edge band.
5- I cut the pocket edge band, the front with the pocket opening and the pocket.
6- I fold the pocket edge strip right sides together and pin it on the pocket opening starting with the ends and the middle.

7- I assemble the pocket edge strip and the front.
I topstitch.
8- I place the pocket pattern and trace with a soap (or erasable pencil) the shape of the pocket on the front.
9- I place the pocket under the front (right side up). I pin then sew the pocket on my tracing with a decorative stretch stitch or with the sealer.

10- I join the edges of the pocket to the front at 5 mm.
11- I can add a label, a ribbon, or an appliqué to personalize more.
12- I finish assembling Dulce following the tutorial. Dulce is finished!

Tutorial: Add a Tulle Skirt to the Regina

Arina is back to share another modification with us. Adding the tulle skirt to the Regina is right on trend. This style is something I see a lot in the store. Now you can make your own. Follow the directions below, and do not forget to show us your result in our Facebook group or tag us on IG (@Sofilantjes_anne).

Say hi to Arina on IG and thank her by following her account.

Photo 1: Measure how wide your elastic is, and cut that amount from the pattern piece of the bodice. Continue making everything like the pattern. I used one layer of tricot and three layers of tulle and processed it just like one skirt. Assemble the skirt and the bodice as well. Do not fasten the bodice to the skirt yet. First, you will now cut the elastic to size. I used the same size as the bodice. Add 2 cm seam allowance and cut. Close the elastic by aligning the two short sides and sewing 1 cm from the edge. Topstitch the short sides at 0.5 cm.

Photo 2: Now, you will put the elastic on the upper body. You do this by placing the wrong side of the elastic on the wrong side of the body. Short stitch the elastic on the side. 

Photo 3: Now, you fold the elastic to the right side, and you may see some protruding fabric. Cut this off very carefully. 

Photo 4: Right side up, topstitch the same stitch again. 

Do everything exactly the same with the skirt. Finished! 

Now for the finished product. What do you think?

Tutorial: Sleeveless Regina with Ruffles

With Spring here and summer coming, how do you make the already perfect Regina even more perfect for the season? Make the Regina sleeveless and and ruffles! Follow the directions below and do not forget to show us your result in our Facebook Group or tag us on IG (@Sofilantjes_anne).

This tutorial is made by Noortje, go say hi over on IG and thank her by following her account.

Step 1.

You follow the instructions of the Regina Ruffle Add-On until you have pinned the ruffle right sides together with the Regina bodice.

Step 2.

Instead of basting the ruffle, you stitch it with a 1cm seam allowance. Make sure your ruffle is the right length before stitching.


Step 3.

After you stitched the ruffle you lock or zigzag the entire sleeve opening.


Step 4.

Close the side seam.


Step 5.

Turn the bodice right side out.
Turn the raw edge below the ruffle (the part that will be under the arm), to the inside. Use a seam of 1cm.
Stitch the entire sleeve opening, just next to the raw edge. Use a slightly larger stitch.


Step 6.

Give it a good steam.


Step 7.

Repeat for the other side.
And you’re ready to attach your skirt to your bodice.


It’s absolutely perfect.
