Have you been following the anniversary celebration at Sofilantjes? It’s the designer’s 2nd Anniversary, and it’s been a spectacular blog tour and week of games, pattern discounts (25% off your purchase (bundles excluded) with code CELEBRATE), give aways, & so much inspiration to create. Her sponsors for the celebration are some of the best in the business – much THANKS to them for making this possible.
For the blog tour, Anne challenged her bloggers to mash, twist, extend, and transform her patterns. She told us to use any of her patterns, even several of her patterns at once, to make our most creative garment possible… and we DID deliver!
These are the highlights and my personal FAVEs…
Pockets! Pockets! and more Pockets!
There were extra pockets, cargo pockets, inseam pockets, and kangaroo pockets shared on the tour.

For me, one of the most UNIQUE transformations for the newest pattern, the Solis Tunic and Dress is Braided Straps… I am trying this trick, for sure!
Paisley Roots | Sprouting Jube Jube
Another unique mash up on Sofilantjes Patterns that I have to guess surprised Anne, was the SWIMSUIT made from the Solis pattern and the free Liv Skirt pattern – so much creativity!
And then of course there were gorgeous dresses for the girlies! with super twirly skirts, longer tunic styles, and even a super sweet peplum skirt.

Paired with the most popular Domi pants pattern, there were tutorials to mash up patterns into a ROMPER – yes! a romper.
