Guest post: Brueram smocked back and free circle add-on

Due to the “Summer of Sofilantjes” event in the Sofilantjes Sew and Show Facebook group, I decided to finally turn the circle skirt idea for the Brueram into a free add-on. I noticed that many people seem to fear the smocking of the back of the Brueram, so when I sewed a circle add-on dress, I also made some process pictures of the smocking. I hope I can convince a few of you that this is totally doable. The end result looks super complicated, but the process is just sewing straight lines (with elastic thread in the bobbin). You can find the free circle skirt add-on in your downloads next to the other Brueram files (after you have bought them). Attach the circle skirt the same way as the maxi skirt. The only difference is that the circle skirt should fit onto the bodice without gathering, so you can skip steps 15 and 16. I made several pictures that mostly visualize step 20 (the actual smocking) of the instructions. Continue reading Guest post: Brueram smocked back and free circle add-on

Montis Tunic and Dress RELEASE

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.

We are on Day 2 and today we have something to show you you that’s not one of the summer dresses.  I don’t know about you, but my Little Miss will not wear a dress everyday.  Sometimes they just need to rip and run, but they still need to be cool in the summer.  Right?

Guestpost: Mantica – Litore

Guestpost by MoonStar-Wondermirakel

If you haven’t seen a Mantica Dress yet, you’ve probably been cut off from all social media for the past week.
Especially in the Sofilantjes Sew & Show group on Facebook about 150 Mantica dresses have been shown. The Buy-Sew-Show-Win contest with the hashtag ‘FreeMantica’ might have something to do with it.

 

Misschien zag u nog geen enkele Mantica Jurk, maar dan bent u wellicht afgesloten geweest van sociale media de afgelopen week.
Vooral in de Sofilantjes Sew & Show groep op Facebook werden er ongeveer 150 Mantica jurken gedeeld. Maar de Koop-Naai-Toon-Win actie met de hashtag ‘FreeMantica’ zal daar wel iets mee te maken gehad hebben.
