We hope you have enjoyed our blog tour so far. Today, Kelly of Handmade Boy has a lovely write up about what she loves about the Ethan and Marco shirts for her boys.

Sis Boom for the Holidays

by Kelly S


I LOVE the holidays! Seriously love them. I love getting together with my family and cooking crazy amounts of food. I love the traditions we have developed over the years. One of them being pajama pants. We are totally casual and I’ve actually declared Thanksgiving and Christmas pajama pants day. Yeah, you read that right, my family comes over and we hang out and eat dinner in our pajama pants. So comfy! However, my kids still need some nice clothes this time of year, especially Thomas for his Suzuki concert. So, I made him the most adorable Sis Boom Ethan with this gorgeous fabric from Phat Quarters and paired it with Sis Boom’s Bosco Bow Tie. Talk about adorable!!!
 I love making button down shirts for my guys. There is just something about a button down that is so clean and simple, but beautiful. It’s a wonderful pattern for showing off some topstitching.

Top 5 Most Popular Sis Boom Kid’s Patterns

Our Top 5 women’s patterns post was so popular, we thought we’d do a run down of our most popular patterns for kids. If you are working on any Sis Boom patterns and have a question, make sure to join our Sis Boom Pattern Co Facebook group. Jeanine Thomlinson runs the show over there and she knows the patterns inside and out!  Don’t forget to share with me what you’re working on, it always brightens my day. I’m on Facebook,  Instagram, and Twitter.

#5 Carly Baby Bubble Romper – if you have a little one in your life, nothing is cuter than the Carly Baby Bubble. Sewist love this easy and quick, reversible pattern. Mom’s love it’s easy on and easy off design and it makes diaper changes a breeze on the go.  Jazz it up with sweet sleeve options galore – sleeveless, or with ruffle or puff sleeves.



#4 Sophie Tunic – tunics are a favorite for a reason, they are so versatile! They look great with jeans, dressed up with fancy shoes and jewelry, or dressed down with sandals and covering a bathing suit for a day at the beach or pool. Sophie is another quick sew and perfect for a beginner, plus 3 sleeve options are included for endless fun.


#3 Ethan Boys Button-Up Shirt – Dress your handsome young hunk in a classic Sis Boom button-down. Perfect for formal holidays, birthday boys, family photos, confirmations, family gatherings.. the list goes on… Pair a Sis Boom Ethan with some khakis, brown belt, hips shoes and… you’re done! Watch out, ladies! The Ethan is also perfect on girls/teens paired with skinny jeans and boots in the fall/winter, and cute sandals in spring/summer.



#2 Marissa Dress – Sis Boom’s Marissa is a sophisticated, fancier dress for girls with pinched straps and cummerbund waist. This pattern is a showstopper paired with your favorite Sis Boom fabric and a crinoline. A sparkly brooch added to the cummerbund really sends it over the top.


#1 Bettyann Shift Dress/Top – Bettyann is simple and comfortable, but one of our more versatile patterns. No wonder she is so popular. Sew a classic dress or top, add length for a maxi dress plus you can add pockets or ruffle sleeves for more whimsy. Such a fun, classic pattern that will never go out of style.

UpCraft Club – featuring the Ethan Shirt

Brienne, of Handmade by Brienne, is a guest blogger over at UpCarft Club this week, and she wrote a post on our very own Sis Boom Ethan Shirt. She gave our pattern rave reviews for ease of printing it out by size, aligning the pattern pieces and finally putting it all together. If you know Carla Crim and Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom Pattern Company, you know this describes our patterns to a “T” and why we have had thousands of positive reviews on our Etsy Shop over the years.

Her son looks so dashing in this shirt, don’t you think? We love it in the handsome and classic blue and white check!
