We love our Betty Ann pattern named for a beloved mentor of mine. This Maxi looks so terrific on Jeanne Hamling, one of our long time testers daughters. Look at the shoes my friends , that’s what caught my eye!!! I love her confidence and pride in wearing one of mom’s creations!!! All of Jeanne’s kids are beautiful and I had the pleasure of meeting this one Miss Lily out in Utah!! Folks I’m sorry I won’t be at quilt market but I will be thinking of all of you!!! This pattern can be found under patterns on this site as well as many other pattern platforms! This fabric is part of our Crazy Love collection and can be found here. Thank you Glam Fabrics on Etsy.. In Australia we found some here. Thank you Fabric Traders AU
So there you have it , a pretty girl in a pretty handmade dress and coordinated shoes..We love you Lily!!

We want every seller to be an online seller , to be known for carrying Sis Boom. We are an eager bunch and we love to chat!!! Got a favorite store in your area??
