Is Birch the New Tundra/PDF Pattern/Sofiona Designs

No, I'm not talking about a Toyota here (even though my husband and I have been stalking the new 2022 Tundra release - I'm liking the blue colour.) Our Tundra pattern has been a favourite for many people and I can list off a few closets that I know are full of them. But now we have Birch and with its relaxed fit and quick construction my own closet is starting to show that Tundra has some competit…

Trail Joggers/PDF Pattern/Sofiona Designs

For quite a while now we've had people ask us to please make a jogger in the Junior Miss size range (since we already have the Railway Joggers in our girls size range). The Trail Joggers were our answer to that request and we decided to make it in both the Junior Miss (size 0-20) AND Girls (size 2-16) range while we were at it.

Such a Cute Cloudberry Collection/Sofiona Designs

We don't often have (take) the time to work on extra projects. The time it takes just to work on the ideas in our heads is non-existent so we rarely feel like shifting focus. But as we are coming close to 10,000 members in our Sofiona Sewing Group on Facebook, we did feel like doing something special. Now, we have quite a few special things planned for the next few months as we make our way t…

A Closet Full of Tundras/Sofiona Designs

Small secret. When I released Tundra I kinda brushed it off as a "meh" pattern that a few people might like. I had no idea it was going to be so well loved! So I decided to go ahead and make a Miss Tundra and this pattern is so addicting!! I've made many already and have no plans to stop. That's a phrase I read a lot on FB - "I'm going to make a million!" - and maybe people really do, but THIS is…

The Cranberry Dress/PDF Pattern/Sofiona Designs

I love holiday dresses. There's just something exciting about making something fancy and perhaps a little over the top...even if it's not totally practical. For a couple years now I've wanted to design a dress that would work for everyday, but also have the look and feel of something that could be "glammed up". Since I specifically had Christmas in mind at the time, I knew I wanted to call it…

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”. Aspen was one that REALLY got a response from our tween/teen audience and when I got a message from…
