The charming Jamie dress is universally appealing and perfect for all occasions. It makes for a pretty cocktail dress paired with heels, or slide on the flip-flops and head for the beach sundress style. We love it for it’s style and comfort, and with Sis Boom’s endless fabric selection you can get the most incredible looks.

Question…are the seam allowances 1/4″ where not indicated? Page 10 front bodice is missing the complete measurement for (b)…I assume the stitch is 1/4″ instead of the standard 5/8″…correct?
Love your designs. They seem perfect for the fuller figure gal. Thank you.
Love this pattern!
I made it in the 2x size, which I wear off the rack as well. I have a DD chest. I modified the front bodice by going between the regular fullness and the full fullness. I needed a lil more coverage but not too full to be too voluptuous, sometimes you just don’t need more fabric there. 🙂 I did one dress in a cotton print and one in a beautiful silky charmuse fabric. Works well in both mediums and fit was the same. I did line the charmuse with muslin to help with moisture.I am planning on another with a modification of the waistband, just going to make it plain, no pleating.
Super easy to do, Jen walks you right thru the steps and for those who are new to sewing, it is a great way to expand your skills. The side zipper insertion is so easy! Do not let that deter you from this pattern! Overall another awesome dress! Love it!
Gorgeous! I made the dress with the full bust option, and I’m an H cup so I really tested the limits ;o) it fits like a glove, though next time I will modify it slightly because on me it’s a bit low cut. I wore it out today and got SO many compliments. I’ll be making more of these, for sure.
