Who doesn’t want that amazing dress that you have been sewing for your girls for yourself, I mean who wants the Solis tunic/dress for women* from Sofilantjes? Everybody right?! I was so excited when I saw the first Solis dress for women on Instagram.
I was afraid that I could not join testing of the Solis dress because of my pregnancy. I really badly wanted to join in. But the Solis for women, besides the circle skirt and pleated skirt also has an empire waist option. The empire waist starts just under the bust and has gathering in the middle of the skirt. So perfect for growing bellies like mine. Isn’t that just perfect? It is just a great summer dress and I can wear it all the way till the end of my pregnancy. I am 30 weeks pregnant in the photos, so still about 10 weeks to go.
Since I had some fabric left and the previous Solis that I sewed for our girl is too short by now I wanted to sew another Solis for our eldest. And it is a rather quick project after you have sewn one for yourself. Unfortunately, I did not have enough fabric to sew a circle skirt for our girl so I again sewed a pleated skirt. She loves it! Even without the circle skirt (pfew).
If you also would like to make a mommy and me outfit and you don’t own the girl’s Solis Tunic and dress yet, you can buy it here (Nederlands patroon).
It was my first time creating a mommy and me look with our girl and we both love it! It is just a great comfortable dress with a unique back. You just have to think about the bra that you are going to wear underneath the dress.
Fabric: The flower jersey of the dress comes from Karteris. The pink jersey was a coupon at Cares’ Stoffen. The orange jersey comes from Stoffenstraat.
