Carla Hegeman Crim is the Man!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It took us awhile to find each other but we are stuck like glue now!!!  As you know she's the greatest  pattern designer of all time and is the brains behind our patterns.  Carla has produced  4 patterns in the span of 5 months!!!! its unreal!!  What I love most about Carla is her professionalism and dedication to the product.  This girl involves more testers then I ever knew existed and they are all charged up with the love of the craft. Thank you best testers in America!! Carla attracts good to her and you'll read about her friends who are behind her, making sure she is out in front because they believe in her so much.  Some folks only buy Scientific Seamstress patterns for their straightforward instructions and illustrative guides that make them simple to follow.  They also know that they have been put to the ultra test and would highly be granted the Good Housekeeping seal of approval if there still is such a thing…How about the Sis Boom seal of approval!!  Please take a looky at her etsy shop and get those downloads now and see how handsome that son is of hers!! That's right she also does boys!!!  I'm afraid Louie's heart belongs to momma!!!  I've tried, believe me !!! 
So below see what this girl has done for Sis Boom !! The peasant is here and we couldn't be more smitten.  A simple silhouette with 100 ways to wear! Not kidding!!  So thank you Carla you are a blessing.  Testers please add all your amazing shots to our flickr group  so folks can see long and short versions!  A special shout to Meg from Brassy Apple for her amazing talents too! The Molly Peasants for girls and Meghan Peasant for adults at You can make so what are you waiting for???Highrespeasentwomanfinal Revised girl peasent

    I love love love these patterns, but I am not familiar with downloadable patterns. What is the story with them? Do I need a certain type of printer? Would love to try these out.

  11. Monique says:

    I am definately getting one for me! Love that I can make one for my daughter too! Keep these great patterns coming!!!

  12. we are working on a response for you.

  13. Suzi says:

    That is so exciting, I can’t wait to try.

  14. Carla says:

    Hi! No special printer needed – standard letter sized office printer is just fine 🙂 . After I draw the patterns, I split them into pieces that fit on 8½ x 11” pages. You print the pieces you need, and tape together to make a durable pattern that can be used again and again.

  15. Cathy says:

    Jennifer this is amazing!!! I absolutely love the new patterns! They are super awesome to wear and easy to make with Carla’s fabulous directions! Your fabrics are equally fabulous and lend themselves to this type of project. Congratulations to both of you ladies!!! I am soooo excited and thanks again for including me in the process! I love you both!!!

  16. Cathy says:

    Meg – I just wanted to say that you are just beautiful and did a wonderful job modeling for these Sis Boom patterns….thanks!!! 🙂

  17. *Staci * says:

    Very cute peasant dress, reminds me of one my older sister made out of a beautiful floral sheet in shades of oranges and yellows many moons ago. It’s so adorable and looks so comfy. I might lower the sleeves just a wee bit to cover those upper arms.

  21. Looks great! X’s & O’s

  22. Looks great! X’s & O’s

    It has been truly a pleasure to work with your beautiful fabrics and Carla’s wonderful patterns. You two together make a dream team for sure!

  26. Stephanie says:

    The fabric and dress patterns go so perfectly together. Sometimes the fabric is able to tell you the project. And as always, such pretty pattern covers.

  27. Firefly Hill says:

    Cute cute cute!! Totally love it Jennifer and Carla!!

  28. Oh! I just love it!!! now if I could just learn to sew! I would wear one everyday!!!

  29. Oh Jennifer, these are so cute!!
    I need one for me and my 9 year old. But I can’t sew… Gotta find someone to make them. Haha!

  30. I love, love that peasant dress! I rarely wear dresses to my hubby’s chagrin, but I’m going to get this pattern and make one for me!

  31. Lisa says:

    Carla is THE best. I have been using her patterns over at for a long time and hers are always consistently above the rest!

  32. Courtney says:

    Just saw your fabric in September’s Country Living. It’s lovely as always.

  33. Mechelle says:

    LOVE THEM! WOW.. I just ordered them both and can hardly wait for them to get here.. now I need to go order more of your fabric, lol.. Is there a Jennifer Paganelli Fabric Addict members club I can sign up for, or start? LOL.. I love it ALL!

  34. Suzie says:

    Love it! I would wear this dress every day in summer – literally! Maybe I can make 7 different ones…
    I really love this style, well done to you and Carla!!

  35. So happy she has Plus sizes….us real women want to look cute too!!!

  36. Jennifer P. says:

    I’m going to learn how to sew just so I can have one of those peasant dresses! That looks like something Kate Hudson would wear with a pair of tall buckskin boots. Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the link!

  37. I usually only sew quilts, but my 20-year-old daughter would look lovely in this dress! Simple, flattering, and lets the fabric shine!
