On May 23 2014 Sofilantjes released her first pattern. The Summer Surprise top, tunic and dress. It was one of many to come. This week we will be celebrating what was and will be the best journey ever. The past year there have been many ups and downs. Sofilantjes has been a bright light during a time of being burned out and dealing with hubby getting really sick. Sofilantjes is a safe place to come to. A place to enjoy and meet a lot of great people and make new friends.

There was a competition in the Betties Basket Facebook group a while back. Contestants got to send in their design idea and the designers that participated got to choose the design they wanted to make into a pattern. I choose Heathers dress idea. She made a drawing for a dress with crossed straps and a high/low wrapped skirt. The dress was made with woven fabrics.
After 2 muslins and a few changes I made the final version. A dress with shirred or elastic back (no zippers or buttons). Straps that meet in the back and are cut in one piece, so no shoulder seams. The high/low wrapped skirt option, top option and maxi dress option. And my favorite, a seamless bodice.

We are releasing a new pattern today.
Please meet the Gemini Skirt Bundle.
Gemini is Latin for Twins. The pattern is inspired by twins. Actually it is inspired by my twin sister and I. It is amazing how two people can come from te same genes, be born on the same day and still can be so different. But this pattern is not only for twins. There are a lot of sisters who have very different styles. Even one girl can have very different styles.
This pattern has combined sizes starting at size NB/56 up to 11/12-146/152. In this pattern you will find two skirt patterns. One is a fitted short skirt with a big kangaroo pocket in front. The side seams are brought to the front (of centered). The waistband in this patterns is for both skirts. It is an elastic free waistband.
