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
