Caravelle Arcade was an open pavilion of shops in St. Croix and as a young girl I was window dresser to many!! Probably making a dollar an hour I sweat inside glass cases to drape and perfect my visual talents little did I know it was prepping me for the big time store Bonwit Teller!! This island this special island in the Caribbean Sea was home to my family for many years. I think you can tell through the years of my work I have never left my past behind me it lives on through my textiles!!! Homage to St. Croix where the gifts keep on giving. Ships in May!! 2015.
Jenny with a J has recruited so many Sis Boom lovers. She was really our very first fan (excluding family of course). This girl from Texas had us on her radar and she was going to make darn sure it was on everyone else’s radar too!! She was so darn cute!!! Her daughter was the perfect age for Jenny to create the most wonderful outfits without hearing the complaints of a teenager. Kelsey must have been 2 when Jenny’s sewing machine started whirring for real!! 5 years later we are still excited to see what Jenny is making and dreaming up!! She teaches Girls World classes and has an amazing time with her students. She believes in sewing for self esteem she sees it in the girls eyes!! Thanks Jenny for your contributions to the Sis Boom Collective..xo
Below we have Kelsey in our latest Leighanna Pattern in Paula Blanco from Girls World Vibe and the halter inside Girls World. We are so in love!!

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