I have been very fortunate in being able to lots of pattern designers test their patterns lately as they get ready for the busy fall/winter/holiday season. So today I will show you my tester version of the latest pattern from Sofilantjes, the Iridis dress, as well as a hack/remix I did. 
So information about the pattern? Hack? Photos? Ahh, I shall leave you to think about it and come back around. Just kidding! Here a the pattern details for you:
Wrap style dress with multiple sizes and lots of possibility. It is a great project for coordinating scraps. My tester version were all scrap pieces from previous projects that were around 1/2 yard each. You can hem with a rolled hem, fully line the dress or use bias tape.

  • Sizes 12m-14y (perfect style for all ages, especially tweens) 
  • Layers meaning you can print only the size/s you need
  • Suitable for woven and knit fabric
  • Short and long sleeve option. Also could work great as sleeveless
  • Fast sew with easy to understand instructions
  • Patterns available in English and Dutch 
  • Great pattern for color blocking 
  • Features ties. No buttons, zippers or elastic
This pattern looks intimidating with all the pieces and curves, but it goes together very easy and very fast. If you are a beginner with some patience or adventure, or ready to move on to some curves, then you definitely want to give this a try. There is also a group where you can ask questions and Annemieke and the crew will guide you through any problem areas 🙂
Tester Version in Woven and Short Sleeve

This version was hemmed with bias tape and I made a mistake sewing so it can wrap and tie either way. 

After I made the pattern, saw how fast it went together and how beautiful the fit was, my brain went crazy. I was seeing all these beautiful things I could make (which ideas I will not share because I am selfish right now.) I still have a dress in my mind that I will make a reality. But I suddenly had a lightbulb go off: it would make a gorgeous and vintage inspired coat. I had this fur vest waiting to be turned into something spectacular. I was given this fleece back fuschia suiting and I had a black and white damask fleece remnant I scored for $1. So basically, this coat cost $1. 
I have been asked to host a sew along for the coat here in the near future, so if you are inspired, get ready, find some amazing fabric and I will walk you through it. I see a wool version in my future. 
I fully lined this with fleece and added the fur cuff and shawl collar. I also put a button on the inside. That is it! Oh, and side pockets. Easy peasy, and now the diva child has a beautiful winter coat. 
If you are inspired to buy the dress pattern now (because it is perfect for the holidays) then head HERE Be sure to follow Sofilantjes on FacebookPinterestBloglovin and of course check out her website HERE
