Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday if you live here in the US! Otherwise hope it was a great November. Hard to believe it’s December already! Our Sis Boom Elves have been busy getting ready for our annual Holiday Show at my house in Wilton, CT- Decemeber 1 to 3 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. If you are in the tristate area, I hope you can make it. Our Sis Boom blog tour rolls on with this lovely Leighanna dress in a classic Charlie Brown Christmas fabric by a Crazy Craft Lady. A Charlie Brown Christmas is a favorite holiday movie around here. What holiday movies do you enjoy watching with your family?
Sewing for the Holidays with Sis Boom (and Charlie Brown)
by Amy of a Crazy Craft Lady
Welcome to my stop on the Sew for the Holidays with Sis Boom Tour! Did you see my teaser photo on Instagram? Have you guessed what I made?
If you guessed the Sis Boom Leighanna, you were right! I’ve always loved this pattern and I wanted to incorporate it into Sewing for the Holidays with Sis Boom Blog Tour. Make sure you go to the end of the post to enter for your chance to win this pattern and links to visit the other stops on this tour!
I have had this fabric in my stash and couldn’t wait to pull it out to make something this year. My husband’s family has a tradition of watching A Charlie Brown Christmas every Christmas Eve and after which, my FIL would snuggle the little one(s) and read the Bible passage from Luke to everyone.
To finish reading head over to a Crazy Craft Lady…
Today we have Sunflower Seams and her daughter in the gorgeous Marissa Dress. The Marissa makes a lovely holiday dress don’t you think? We love her bright and cheery fabric choice and off course the addition of our Rachel Reindeer. It’s a free pattern so download it today!
The Holidays with Sis Boom
By Becca Plymale of Sunflower Seams
I am very excited Sis Boom decided to put on a Holiday blog tour. I had such a wonderful time during the Back to School tour that I jumped at the chance to be a part of another.
The holidays are a very special time for me. It’s a time for family gatherings, and traditions but they also have a special place in my heart when it comes to sewing. The first dress I ever made my daughter as a baby was a Christmas dress and that is when my passion of sewing garments became real. I love giving her something special each year, unique to her and her growing personality.
For this year’s Christmas dress, I chose to use the Marissa Dress PDF pattern. It is so elegant but still captures an innocence that she possesses. I don’t need her growing up any faster then she already is.
To continue reading Sunflower Seams post head over to her blog….
It’s taken awhile to get here but we are so uber excited by the latest Pattern release. Carla Crim of Scientific Seamstress has done it again. We know you have waited awhile and we do apologize for the delay but it is extremely important to Carla that the larger women get the same fit as the smaller women…No one left behind and believe me it shows. Every detail, every size, every tester matters to us!! This was not easy to fit all “the Girls” and quite a bit went into the cup sizes to give that unequivocal Sis Boom fit. Carla may have wanted to pull her hair out at times but she developed a seamless pattern with the ease that you have come to know. We say quilter Friendly for a reason! If you can sew a straight seam chances are that you can follow these clear cut instructions. Carla I bow before you with so much envy for what you do and the population that are sworn scientific seamstress followers. Carla is the one to beat always outdoing her personal best. Tell you something else..she loves a challenge and the determination to complete this pattern was only matched by her enthusiasm to conquer her fears!! She is for us the Holy Grail of Pattern makers. A personal note..Carla together each with our own skill set are going to set this world on fire!!!! I love and respect you so much!
Take a look at these masterpieces!!! Testers you all rock!!! I mean it, I may forget your name but I won’t forget your service to a great SB pattern!! We really appreciate you. Your feedback means everything!!!

Introducing our newest PDF pattern, Judy’s Fancy Pants.
Judy’s Fancy Pants are the epitome of casual elegance. Whether you are rushing kids off to school or hosting a luncheon, these will be your everyday go-to. Whip up a quick pair of comfy PJs, or go to town with little details like a drawstring, double top-stitching, and faux-piped pockets. Pair them with a tunic or a tank and you’ve got a brilliant outfit.
Psssst. Coming very soon is the kiddo version, The Katie Pants! Here’s a sneak peak for you, featuring our darling Abby…
Something we love to do is imagine our line of patterns as people. Each one seems to have a personality of its own… mostly easygoing and comfortable, and also versatile. We took this Summer Angie and gave her a little Spring / Fall look.
What would Angie wear if she were to go out with friends? There’s nothing that a denim jacket and pair of riding boots can’t transform! This is our beautiful model, Kelsey.
