Sofilantjes Nivalis Dress and Tunic release!



A few weeks ago, I had the realization that some of my old standby patterns were no longer appealing to my oldest child. I started browsing around for the perfect pattern to appeal to her and fell in love with a new design from Sofilantjes.

I sewed up the Hibernis cowl shirt in testing for my oldest daughter. I then made a second one for Middle Miss out of a Riley Blake floral and Art Gallery as accent.

The pattern was so amazing, that even though I’m in the middle of my big First Communion dress project, I jumped at the chance to test The Hibernis’ sister pattern, The Nivalis Dress and Tunic.

Since Big Miss has gotten most of my sewing room attention lately, I applied to test the collar option of the Nivalis for my Middle Miss. She really enjoys picking fabrics and creating outfits out of her handmade wardrobe.

My version below is View B, tunic length, with long sleeves and the collar. I used a mint solid and Riley Blake Roots and Wings for Middle Miss’ tunic length top.


Why should you add the Nivalis to your pattern stash?

  1. Two dress lengths: Tunic and Dress length
  2. Three sleeve lengths: Cap, 3/4, and Long
  3. Two neckline options: 3 neckline options – neckband, hood, and collar
  4. Solid and Colorblocked dress options
  5. Adorable accent tabs and clear instructions to perfect these details.
  6. European sizing (I love having the “in between” sizes that U.S. sizing often skips). Pattern comes in size 12m/80 to 14/164.
  7. Pieces are also interchangeable with the Hibernis Cowl.

I cannot wait to sew up many more variations for my girls!

Makes sure you head on over to Sofilantjes from 2/8/2016-2/9/2016 (Central European Time) and grab your copy while it is on sale for $5 USD!
