Christmas Regina

The regina dress from Sofilantjes* and Christmas are a match made in heaven. I mean that nice detail on the sleeves makes a royal queen's dress right? The regina is a quick sew with a great result. I made the tunic, one with a gathered circle skirt and one with the low back option. This... Continue Reading →

Teddy Cicero in fall colours

I love comfortable warm vests, but our eldest is all about dresses. So I basically sew dresses for her. Last year she did have a favourite vest with a soft cuddly inside, which is now pasted on to her sister. When she saw it again she said she wanted another one of those. That combined...

Regem t-shirt for men

Yes! Sewing for the man is your life. He is definitely the one that I sew for the least, so he and I were very happy that I could test for him. Meet the Regem shirt from Sofilantjes* for the men in our life. The basic Regem shirt, option A, is a quick sew and... Continue Reading →

First sweater for fall weather

The Otium sweater from Sofilantjes* has been on my sewing list for a while because of the diagonal colour blocking. I love colour blocking and even more asymmetrical colour blocking. And with the rain perfect for fall weather. The Otium is a quick sew and has several options: the diagonal colour block, a low back... Continue Reading →

Free (midi) Liberam skirt & giveaway

Yay, a free pattern and it is a skirt, the Liberam skirt (Nederlands patroon) from Sofilantjes*! A skirt our critical girl loves. Mainly because of the length and the twirl. She adores maxi length skirts and dresses, but I think midi skirts are even better. They feel long to her, but short enough for me... Continue Reading →

For this year I had a few summer dresses on my to sew list with beautiful backs. The first one I sewed was the Optimum Racerback dress from Sofilantjes*. It is such... Continue Reading →

When will the summer start? I am hoping soon, so that our girls get to wear their summer dresses. I just keep on hoping and sewing summer dresses! At least our girls will wear them during our holiday in Italy, which seems to really be happening this summer. The newest summer dress is the Montis... Continue Reading →

A new hit: Flora Flared pants

Our girls are really dress and skirt kind of girls, they basically wear dresses and skirts. Our eldest does sometimes wear pants, but then they have to be flared! I already sewed these ones in French Terry and these ones in stretch rib. Now our two eldest have new favorite pants: the Flora Flared pants... Continue Reading →

Alpenfleece Foliis

I wanted to make a dress with alpenfleece fabric. The Foliis Jacket and dress from Sofilantjes* works great with thicker fabrics and I wanted to try an option that I didn't sew yet. I sewed this dress with the zipper some years ago. Time to sew another, or actually two. For our eldest I sewed... Continue Reading →
