Butterflies in my stomach

It’s always hard to open up your home and display your  work to the world and hope that it makes folks happy and  that it brings a smile.  I don’t really ask for much more than that.  I hope that you can see it in your home and that it touches you in a special way that handmade items have the capacity to do.  So come bring a friend there is always coffee and cookies and lots of good convo as they say on ETSY.  I can’t wait to see you. Below Katie in our latest pattern called the Angie after our beloved tester Tom’s wife.  A truly beautiful soul.  It will be at You Can Make this by next week. You know that Carla she doesn’t sleep much debuting both the Leighanna and the Angie in one month. We are so grateful to her.  So keep watching. My daughter Kate also holds one of our burlap hearts with a vintage jewel to give someone special. Oh and by the way the Angie has deep pockets and no zipper..you will make it your everyday dress!! Try Marie Madeline for Chandler in Blue!  The blue is more like the Blue in this picture.

Are you sitting down??

Wanted to give you a quick reveal of The Shana  Bell Sleeve Tunic for your Fall plans and designs!!!  It already exists all you have to do is download..Opaque tights nice knee high black boots and you are a throwback to the seventies.  Then with a sweet headband from Girls World Vibe how can you miss?  I love this longer sleeve too.  Remember long or short a dress or over pants.  You are going to be stunning.  Say hello to daughter Kate, she did me a solid and stepped in for a photo shoot with Tim Geaney!! Thanks Kate.  Download yours tonight and find the fabric here at Marie Madeline they’ve got 22 yards in stock!! Love this hipster look!!

Roll out the Red Carpet for Rosetta!

We were lucky enough to have Katie home for a few days last week… so what did we do? We scooped her up and made her model some Sis Boom goodies… specifically the Rosetta bag!!!

Did you know there are actually 3 size options? Mini (S), Purse (M) and Tote (L)- all of which come with the pattern PDF! Also, there are three options for edge finishing (overlocked, narrow hemmed, and double thickness ruffles), so don’t worry if you don’t have a serger!

The Rosetta bag is currently our only (and most favorite) PDF bag pattern. We have seen our Sis Boom friends mix it up like none other!

The options are limitless and it is a very versatile shape and design that appeals to little girls and moms alike. I bet you could even talk your college gal into carrying her books in one of these beauties!

More about The New Gals in town, Rebecca and Shannon…

Rebecca

The Rebecca shift is a stunningly simple garment that gets you right out the door, looking manicured and ready for anything.  Grocery store, errands, PTA, cocktail party, speaking engagement….this is THE go-to closet item.  The flattering notched neckline and dropped waistband can be made with matching or contrasting prints.  Imagine the Sis Boom fabric choices that take this one from prepster college girl to sophisticated city girl.  Because of the tailored style, we have provided extremely detailed fitting information and pattern pieces in every numerical size from 0-26W.  The semi-fitted skirt and princess bodice can be made from a combination of sizes to get a cut that is perfect for your proportions.  In addition, the bodice and skirt have multiple cutting lines, so even if you are tall or petite, you can get just the torso and hemline lengths you are after.

Shannon

The simple shift is a true all-occasion garment, and we are so in love with our Shannon! Pair with flip-flops for a stroll along the boardwalk, or with a headband and dressy flats for an evening at the symphony. This little dress features a tailored fit with a slight A-line flair. The notched neckline and dropped-waist belt can be made of matching or contrasting fabric…what a fun way to play with Sis Boom prints!  The bodice and skirt have multiple cutting lines so you can get just the look and length you are after.
