Vivax dress by Sofilantjes

I haven’t been sewing too much the last couple of months. This also showed on the blog with fewer posts since the beginning of this year. Of course a new pattern test by Sofilantjes is a great way to get out of this sewing dip!

The new top and dress is called Vivax* (Nederlands patroon), which means lively, and is another great pattern. Of course it has several options as you are used to with patterns by Sofilantjes. I love the collar option, it looks awesome and is easy to put together. Use a bit of thicker fabric so that it stands up nicely. Great for using scraps! There is also a round collar option.
You know I love color blocking. This pattern has four sleeve lengths (short, half, 3/4 and long sleeves) and different options for color blocking so you can go all the way. I sewed the long sleeve with three pattern pieces, there is also the long sleeve option with two different pattern pieces.
This dress is just another great pattern by Sofilantjes and is one of my favourites at the moment. The collar makes it different from other patterns and it is very versatile. You can use french terry (like I did) or sweat fabric for the dress to make a great winter dress from it. But also jersey would be suitable (just make sure you use a stable, good quality fabric for the collar) for a more spring time kind of dress.

Something else you might have noticed is the sudden short hair of our girl. Well she decided that she wanted to try something with her hair and cut her hair herself. We were shocked to see how short she herself cut her hair. We definitely had to get used to the new look.

FabricFlower Circle French Terry from Nooteboom bought at Stoffenfeest, for the binding I used one from Inspinration’s stash, which was a perfect match!
