We are so grateful to Carla Crim for our amazing PDF patterns. Every Day, and I mean Every Day, you all are singing the praises of Sis Boom patterns and we feel truly blessed to have the Scientific Seamstress tried and true pattern designer for the Sis Boom Pattern Co.
She gives it her all and simplify’s the process and anticipates your questions before the pattern debuts. Our faithful testers give her feedback and talk each stage through. They also add to the magic of Sis Boom Patterns.
I can tell that you are all happy because we get so few questions It’s kind of like the Maytag repairman there is nothing to fix!!
Kudos to Carla and her amazing team of testers. We appreciate you all so much.
So here it is the most popular pattern for it’s ease of creating and of versatility. It’s the Molly Peasant! Named after my sweet sis and that’s Sophie my niece when she was a little one. You probably know her from our book Girls World.
How exciting! We are so proud of the Sis Boom Pattern Co. Pattern Collection and absolutely LOVE that they’re available on a handful of sites.
If you peep to the left of this blog post, there’s a complete list of Sis Boom PDF pattern retailer links. We love supporting these sites because they’re always rooting on Sis Boom products and most importantly, they spread the Sis Boom cheer!
We’re thrilled to announce that our PDF patterns are currently available on Oliver + S!

Hi everyone! It’s still Madeline here, as Jen is representing Sis Boom over in Ohio at the Country Living Fair! (Go Jen!!!!)
Let’s talk clothes… More specifically, Sis Boom patterns.. ohh yeahh!
The whole process is so magical, is it not?! From the first step of choosing your pattern… to selecting the most perfect fabric with the most wonderful and right-on colors, ideal scale, and personality that suits you better than you had ever imagined… to the time spent at the sewing machine.. and then finally, the moment you slip that garment on and stand back with a smile on your face. Magic!! How much fun is that?!
I wanted to chose a pattern today and showcase some accessories that can enhance the look and take it right into Autumn.
My choice is the Angie Dress. Ideal by itself for the warmer Summer months, Angie can really work year round. For those of you who aren’t ready to put it away for the cooler months ahead, don’t worry! I’ve got you covered! BTW, as I come up with this look, I totally have Katie in mind… how beautiful is she in these photos!! I’m hoping this is an outfit she’d love to wear. Maybe I’ll take her shopping when she comes home for her next break! (sorry, Jen! haha!)
So, either get that Angie out and start accessorizing!… OR if you don’t have one, it’s time to MAKE ONE! Happy Sunday xo Madeline
From left to right, Katie (my daughter) wears the Angie, Liz wears the Dana Top and Amanda wears the Lucy Halter. Can you believe the beauty of Superfly’s Jane?? Named for a wonderful colleague Jane Dagmi who I adore and miss everyday. She’s in Florida! I think it captures my girlfriend Jane! Big personality , fun loving, balanced, poised, and oh so pretty!!!
Hi everyone– it’s Madeline here. We’ve got some very exciting updates to share with you regarding a new feature on our website….. Now you can instantly download Sis Boom PDF patterns!!… What does that mean for you?
Buy. Print. Sew. LOVE! All in an instant!
Read on to learn more
New Instant Download Feature with Sis Boom PDF Patterns
I am SO happy to share something very exciting with everyone out there… We JUST launched a BRAND NEW Sis Boom Patterns Shop. It’s awesome and so easy to use. The most exciting update is that all patterns are now instant downloads! You’ll also notice that each pattern has its own page with pattern details and multiple pattern views. You’re going to love it!
Sis Boom Shop
Additionally, our Sis Boom Store is full of wonderful products, like signed copies of Girl’s World and Happy Home, the Sis Boom note cards & journal, and aprons. Come take a look!
How does the Instant PDF Pattern download process work? (all of this information can be found on our FAQ page:
We love this downloadable pattern feature on our web site because it allows you to start sewing minutes after you place your order! Once you’ve decided which pattern you’d like to order, click on the “Buy” button. Follow prompts to complete your order. You will then be emailed a link to download the file. Additionally, a link will appear in your account history/downloads page. The pattern is a PDF file. Within moments you will have your pattern and you can begin your project! Patterns are then printed on your end and assembled.
How do I Print & assemble MY PDF patterns?
When you select the pages to print, select “none” so that the printer does not change the pattern size upon printing. Once printed, the square box should measure 1″ square on the pattern piece. At this point you will need to cut and assemble the pages to make each pattern piece. There are directions on how to assemble the pieces. Many customers like PDF patterns because the paper is sturdier and you are able to print each size separately. Some people print the directions and others read the directions directly from their computer. Choose the size pattern you need and print out those pages. If the pattern piece is bigger than an 8×10 sheet of printer paper, it will print out on several pages and you simply cut and assemble. There are directions for how to do this. Some people also choose to print out the directions and some people just follow along from their computer screen. The advantages of this method are that you don’t have to deal with cutting out nested patterns sizes (thereby ruining other sizes in the nesting), plus computer paper is sturdier than tissue paper that commercial patterns are normally printed on. These patterns have much more detailed instruction, photos and diagrams than a typical commercial pattern would. That makes these patterns great for the beginner and the experienced sewist alike.
Last, and certainly not least, thank you to all of you for the warm birthday wishes!! I received the most special gift– being able to spend more time and work alongside Jennifer. Who wouldn’t want that!!!
Have a wonderful weekend xo Madeline
