Last Sofiona sew: Minnow swimsuit

It turns out to be a swimsuit season for me sewing wise. I already sewed this swimsuit for our eldest and this is the second swimsuit for her and I have at least 2 more to come for our middle one. Sewing swimsuits is just so satisfying. The fit is so much better than the... Continue Reading →

Reversible bikini: Elowyn meets Fallon

It is swim season and our eldest could use some new swimwear. Although she is still wearing her favourites: the infinity bikini and the sorbetto bikini. She loved the Elowyn sports crop from Petite Stitchery* when she saw it. It became even better when she found out she could pick out two different combinations to... Continue Reading →

Malibu swimsuit

Our girls love swimming and now that swimming season is coming up I love to sew some new swimsuits. Especially, swimsuits that have elements our girls love: flutter sleeves and skirts at their bottoms. The Malibu swimsuit from Bella Sunshine Designs* includes it all, it includes a two piece set (besides the one piece swimsuit),... Continue Reading →

Bikinis for myself

I have been sewing swimwear for a couple of years for our girls already and I have been looking jealously at the swimsuits of our girls. But I never really found a swimsuit that I liked for myself. Until the new patterns of Jalie! The Claudia Bikinis (4136) was added last minute and I liked... Continue Reading →

Sporty Leggings with pockets

My first (two) leggings made me enthusiastic to sew more athletic leggings for myself. The new collection of patterns by Jalie includes Jessica leggings with side pocket (4127). I love pockets in my leggings and I love colour blocking, both are present in the newest leggings pattern from Jalie. The biggest advantage in my opinion... Continue Reading →

Sorbetto swimsuit

When our girl saw the tester call of the Sorbetto swimsuit (by Designs by Call Ajaire*) she immediately said she liked it and would like one. She adores the sleeves of the top. She was ok with any of the options, as long as it had the flowy sleeves. I like separate swimsuits (with separate... Continue Reading →

Infinity swimsuit

I immediately fell in love with the infinity leotard from BOO! Designs*. It would be great for a swimsuit or a leotard for dance classes. I decided to first make a swimsuit for our eldest and I wanted to finish it before we went on our holiday to Italy. Now that the eldest is done... Continue Reading →

Swimsuits for the girls

I found a new joy, sewing swimsuits (see all swimsuits which I sewed before). Our eldest swims every week so sewing a swimsuit will be used every week, not only during summer. But it all started when I wanted to sew a bikini bottom for our middle daughter. During summer our girls mostly wear UV shirts when they... Continue Reading →

Jalie’s Tessa (ballet dress)

Our eldest girl loves to dance and sing all day long. So a couple of years ago we started with dance lessons. I couldn't find a ballet suit with a short skirt (I am not in any way specific), so I decided to make one myself. Since that was already more than 1,5 years ago... Continue Reading →
