I purchased the Marco shirt on August 6, 2013 (according to Etsy). More than 3 years ago! And I’ve never made it. (I should really look through my pattern collection to see what other gems are sitting unused and abused.)


The olive drab green and creamy white flannel coordinate with the Christmas-y spirit yet I can still wear it all through the winter season.
I bought the fabric from Joann Fabric who knows how long ago, probably when I bought the pattern.
I have about 2/3 yard left which I think I’ll use to make a Swoon Betty with.


It’s not exactly winter here in SoCal but the mornings and evenings are cool so I slip on leggings or skinny jeans.
I think I look pretty damn hot. My husband agrees!


15 button holes seemed daunting and I really didn’t want to do that many! Pearl snaps were the best solution. It took maybe 20 minutes to set those snaps. Much better than the very possible 2 hours of button-holing. Stab me in the eye!

Sis Boom Holiday Blog Tour – Day 3 The Ethan and the Marco

As we roll into the Thanksgiving week home stretch, we hope you have a wonderful, and blessed holiday with family and friends near and far. As always, we are thankful for our fans. We couldn’t do what we do without your continued support. Thanks for loving all we do here at Sis Boom.

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.
