Pattern Testing: Regina Tunic and Dress by Sofilantjes

Sofilantjes isn’t a new pattern company to me even though it’s based in the Netherlands. Its slogan “Modern PDF Patterns with a Twist” is rather apt when you see the interesting back details of some of its tops and dresses. I bought the Montis Tunic and Dress pattern when it was launched as I like… Continue reading Pattern Testing: Regina Tunic and Dress by Sofilantjes

When I saw the prototype that Marina Roussel, the pattern designer, made, I fell in love straight away! I had seen the Leilani dress for girls and was already anticipating the women’s version.

Pattern Testing: Darcy Dress and Top

When I saw the tester call for a dolman dress and top in the Bubby and Me Pattern Group, I jumped at the opportunity immediately. I love the asymmetrical bodice and hem, which is a gentle curve. Nikki Marsh used adorable panels for her samples, and apparently takes preorders for the fabric too. I didn’t… Continue reading Pattern Testing: Darcy Dress and Top
