Happy 2nd Anniversary Sofilantjes!!

I’m thrilled to be helping celebrate Sofilantjes’ 2nd Anniversary!  Anne is an amazing designer and her patterns are so well loved in our house.  I’ve been fortunate enough to be on her testing team for several patterns and I’m always in awe of her unique ideas.


It’s always a huge plus for me when I can use the same patterns for both kids.  I have a horrible  wonderful pattern buying habit and I suppose being able to reduce a few here or there is probably helpful, haha!  Even better, is when you can (with a little experience) throw a few patterns together to get something completely new!


The Summer Surprise Top has been on my list to try for awhile now.  It has a sweet back bow and little pleat in the front that takes just a simple tee/tank and bumps it up a notch.

The Domi Sweats are in my tried and true stack of bottom patterns.  We love the rounded pockets (although Miss Thang said she didn’t want pockets this time) and since they come in shorts or pants they are perfect year round.

To combine the two I started with the Skinny Top version and lowered the bow by about an inch in the back.  I wanted to make sure it was easy enough to slide up and down over the shoulders, but not too easy.  Then I added a few rows of shirring along the bottom of the top.


I made the pants per the pattern, only shortening them a little to an in between shorts/capri length.  Instead of adding the waistband I just attached the pants directly to the top.  Voila!

Can you tell she loved it??  With just a few days left of 2nd grade she says her outfits have to be just right and I was informed this one makes the cut! Go mom!! haha!   (side note… I cannot believe my baby will be in imagesrd grade!!)


As she gets older cutesy fabrics just don’t fly around here for anything but pj’s.  For this one Halla Fabricss sent me this gorgeous blue chevron from Znok, isn’t it amazing?  And the gray Stenzo solid from Mabel Madison was a perfect match!
