Sofia Verano will be moving in & opening our doors to the public on Sunday, March 1st in midtown Sacramento!!!
There are times in my life, I have to pinch myself to believe this is really my job. I didn’t plan to create my own handcrafted clothing line, it happened & I embraced it.
I absolutely LOVE what I do, love to create & love when you all get your packages and are as excited as I am! I am one woman, a wife, a mother, sister, daughter. I feel very blessed to be able to share my talent with women all over the world. I love being in a place where I can be a part of another woman’s happiness & see her confidence as she gets to spoil herself a bit with something new <3
So I made myself this maxi about a year & a half ago but I have so many maxis now!
So decided to lay it out flat and cut some leggings out of it. It was the perfect amount of fabric too.
So I’m rockin’ my refashioned maxi into leggings today!

What goes into a men’s tee? What do you look for when finding the perfect fit?
I’ve always made women’s clothing, it’s just what I do. It comes very naturally to me. But I’m also always trying to push my own limits and in doing so, I’ve made some fun pieces for my daughter.
So, my husband has always said he’d love some tees in our super soft knits. They are really comfy! His biggest pet peeve is the sleeve length and mine is the uncomfortable ribbing on the neckline…so we lengthened the sleeves and went without the traditional neckline ribbing.
I never imagined making men’s clothing and I still have quite a bit of practice before I feel comfortable with it! But making something new is always a great learning experience :)
Hey all, every day I say I’m going to sit and write, then the day goes by and I’m busy from sun up to sun down and I think guess I’ll write tomorrow. Well, it’s a vicious cycle because I never seem to find the time!
Life is busy, for sure! But there’s got to be some sort of balance, right? I tell myself often that it’s just this busy because I’m just starting out, because I’m launching a new clothing line, creating new designs each week, running specials and sales and sewing hundred of customs…well, the list goes on & on. And I’m blessed to have found this success all through word of mouth and social media, blessed to have you as my audience and happy to have a wonderful clientele.
It’s time to start blogging again. In fact, I just saw my little happy anniversary notification on WordPress. It’s time to write & share things w/you all again :)
So with that…it’s also goodnight! It’s late & I need some sleep so I can sewlikeamadwoman tomorrow ;)
I’ll leave you with tons of photos if my newer designs! Come check out my Sofia Verano Facebook page
Before & After pics of this refashion:
My friend, Nicole ordered this cute dress and when it arrived, the sizing was WAY off! It was so small that it may fit a size 0-2. She sent it to me to see if I could do anything with it. I was afraid I would only be able to save the bottom portion of the skirt because it was that small!
Well, I removed the elastic in the waist and chopped off the top of the dress since the bust line would not fit her.
I ended up saving the entire skirt portion of the dress because I changed the top to a yoga waistband. I made this “disaster dress” (as my friend called it) into a cute maxi skirt w/a custom drapey tank to match. I can’t wait to see pics, Nicole!

Hello Ladies! Introducing, Sofia Verano! A new fashion line inspired by each and every one of YOU. It’s been a few months in the making but I’m so excited that launch day is finally here and I hope you all love it. Sofia Verano represents everything I hope to bring to the world as a seamstress and designer. It also represents my commitment to all of you, since without you, this would still just be a dream. I depend 100% on all you ladies to determine which outfits work and which don’t. For that reason I’ll continue giving personal attention whenever I can because I love being able to communicate with all of you on a daily basis and I believe it’s something that truly sets Sofia Verano apart. So now that you know the name, let me tell you about some awesome new features so we can get started.
Along with the addition of a brand name, soon everything I create will come with a one of a kind, “Made For” label. Like everything else I do, I wanted my labels to reflect the beautiful ladies wearing my designs not just me. These labels will further guarantee that every outfit I produce is as unique and special as the person wearing it. The label will include only a first name to avoid any privacy issues.
You’ll notice my new photo album displaying my “Ready to Wear” items that will, in addition to still being made custom to your measurements, will also be sold in general sizes. I will continue taking custom orders for these items, however, now you also have the option to pick a general size with the advantage that it will ship within two days guaranteed! At the moment I’m limiting the items in this section to only a few until I see what the demand is like to make sure I can keep up. Note: These items will not impact the 3-4 week waiting period I currently have for custom made orders. However, you can choose to add one of these items to your existing custom order when it’s complete and they would go out together with no additional shipping charges applied.
