The Wildberries

Earlier this month we brought you the first outerwear pattern from Sofiona Designs (the Rose Hip Jacket), now we're we're ending the month by going in the opposite direction and bringing you the first Sofiona undergarment patterns. The Wild Blueberry and Wild Strawberry bralettes (also available bundled here) are a little different from the rest of our collection because they have a unique set…

Rose Hip is a Sister/Sofiona Designs

When I first came up with the idea for Clover I had so many different ideas for it, but just too much for one pattern. Gets too confusing! I realized it needed to be split into a knit pattern and a woven pattern. Clover is great for all seasons with the different sleeve lengths, but Rose Hip is better suited for that fall sewing and it's been such a treat to work on this first ever outerwear p…

Miss Aspen for the Junior Misses/Sofiona Designs

To go along with our new Miss Dandelion release, I simply had to include the Miss Aspen romper add-on. I’m used to people commenting on our kids patterns “I want this is MY size!!!” because our designs, though very kid friendly, are often designed with a mature vibe that make us say “I’d wear that”.

Miss Dandelion Got a Few Extra Perks/Sofiona Designs

Those who have been around us for awhile know that Sofiona's focus is about making sure the tweens and teens have somewhere to go as they size out o…

It's Time for a Romper!!/Sofiona Designs

Yup! It is! And this is the same person that told the testers just a few months ago that I'm not into rompers and they can just expect to never see one in the Sofiona store. Apparently I'm one of those people that resorts to saying no first and then changing her mind. I'm ok with that. So, welcome Aspen!! It actually came down to my oldest. She's been asking for a pantsuit like I made myself a…

Introducing the Clover Crop Hoodie/Sofiona Designs

Every pattern has its story. Its way of making my heart race... in the form of stress. Then later it races again while I fall in love with the end result. Clover has been in the making for months. I am such a slow designer. Then World Crazy hit our part of the world pretty much the same day I put out the tester call. The emotions and the unknowns led me to cancel the test. I just didn't think it w…
