I’m so very happy to share this gorgeous couples photo with you! Peggy stopped by my boutique one day looking around & mentioned she was looking for a sage dress for a special event coming up. I asked if she could drop by the next day so I could give her a swatch of my sage fabric and she did so we created this custom dress to be paired with her beautiful crochet piece. Doug was still looking for the perfect linen set so gave me a challenge to create my first custom mens collared shirt & pant set…I won’t lie…this was something I wasn’t positive I could do! Now much to my delight, I was both amazed & relieved when he tried it on & it was perfect! See post here
Thank you so very much for having such faith in me & allowing me to create your fabulous pieces custom for you, Peggy & Doug! I am so very excited to share your gorgeous photos! ❤️
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!
