It is officially Spring and what a better choice for a spring jacket then the Cicero Jacket? Although we live in South Florida and it’s hot a lot of the time, we do get some cold fronts and the temperature cools down. Made out of the right knit fabric, the Cicero is perfect for our weather.
Two years ago the Regina Tunic and Dress was released. Immediately, the requests for an adult version began flooding in. No more impatiently waiting, the Regina Adult is here and it’s great!

Hi there again!
After a little break due to the birth of our baby girl Amelie I’m back and guess what… of course I made clothes for the baby!
As we didn’t know if we were having a boy or girl I bought some neutral colors and prints I liked in a stretchy fabric and decided to sew up the Stella Jumpsuit in several sizes (NB – 1 month – 3 month). As my maternity leave started it was nice to follow a pattern that was pretty straight forward, so after cutting all the parts sewing started.Continue reading Stella Jumpsuit – A Review
Our testers had a lot of fun with this one as usual. Would you like to see some pictures?
If I’m prepared for the colder days? Oh yes, I am!
In fact, I don’t mind autumn and winter at all. It’s great to put on those warm sweaters, tunics and stockings!

I am so excited to introduce myself to you all. My name is Johanna Ali and I am part of the Sofilantjes Blog Team! You can read a little about the rest of the team HERE. I started sewing 5 years ago when I saw Mimi G Style wearing this fabulous skirt, the Regal Maxi Skirt. It’s a long maxi skirt with a sash and pockets and I needed to have it! I then found out that she did not sell the skirt, but sold the tutorial on how to make it. I was determined to have it and purchased my first sewing machine. I learned how to sew from watching sewing tutorials on YouTube and other sewing bloggers. I mainly sew for myself, but I also love to sew for my son whenever I can.
The Velocitas Hoodie
I chose to make the Velocitas Hoodie as my first Sofilantjes pattern because it’s the perfect fall piece to have in South Florida. The weather doesn’t really get too cold until December or January and usually doesn’t last too long. Having a hoodie always comes in handy.
I decided to use this cable knit sweater navy fabric from JOANN that I purchased last fall. I also used a Rib Knit 1 x 1 Fabric in Heather Grey fabric as my accent fabric. If you are going to use more than one color, I would suggest you decide which pattern piece is going to be what color and label your pattern piece accordingly so you know which fabric to cut.
I love that this pattern comes with two different bodice options. You can also make the Velocitas Hood all year round because the pattern comes in a long and short sleeved option. The pattern grows with your little starting at 12 months to 14 years so that you can make them a new hoodie every season. The wide range in sizing is also great if you have more than one child. I decided to make my son a size 12 based on his body measurements and the only modification I made was to cut off 2 inches from the sleeves as they were a little too large. Other then that, I thought the pattern instructions were very simple to follow and this hoodie really came together really quickly.
I really hope you enjoyed my Velocitas Hoodie as much as my son did. He wore it to school right after photographing it. He loves when I sew for him and he couldn’t wait to show off his hoodie to his friends at school. You can purchase the Velocita Hoodie by using my affiliate link found HERE.
My goal is to share a new make with a different Sofilantjes pattern each quarter and I hope that you join me and sew up your own.
Until next time,
Johanna – @soveryjo
