The Gabriella Fae and Other Cute Patterns

Gabriella Fae Since I discovered Sis Boom and Scientific Seamstress patterns over two years ago, I almost haven’t given any other pattern designers a chance. I just love that their directions are so clear, and I can print a pattern up in just the size and style I want. I hate dealing with the thin, easily torn tissue paper patterns. I inevitably slip with the scissors or cut the wrong size. Not to mention, I can never get them back in the envelope without crumpling them up. With Sis Boom and S.S. PDF patterns, designed by Carla Hegeman Crim (and Jennifer Paganelli, in the case of the Sis Boom patterns), I can just print them out on whatever thickness paper I like. I usually store them flat on a shelf. If I lose a piece, I just print it up again. Also, the directions are incredibly detailed and clear. I have gotten to do a little pattern testing for Sis Boom/S.S., and I really appreciate the work that goes into each pattern. Carla Hegeman Crim doesn’t just churn these babies out–the sizing process takes weeks, perhaps months. For the adult sizes, most (if not all) patterns range from size XXS to 3X. They flatter pretty much every size. I’ve been able to feel as good in tops I’ve made for myself in a 1X, before losing the baby weight, as I do in my current size Large. I’ve adapted the same pattern to fit a petite person as I have to fit a long-torsoed person, and they both looked great. Anyway, housework and a screaming almost 3-year-old are calling me, so I will just post a few pics of the Sis Boom/Scientific Seamstress projects I’ve made in the past couple of years. It goes without saying that I’m a huge fan.

I need to edit this post one more time! A Facebook friend of mine, Debbie Boren, has given me a coupon code to share with my subscribers.She sells amazing Riley Blake and Michael Miller prints. Here’s the code: 2015RBH She sells on her Facebook page and has a great selection and great prices! Message her the code for 20% off or free shipping. Also, if you want to check out more Sis Boom/SS patterns, you can find them here:  I tried to include the link in the comments, but it isn’t showing up for some odd reason.

      Thank you, Tracy! I love the latest Jenny Eliza, too, and am getting impatient waiting for Jo Ann’s to stock it! Jennifer is way too talented at designing fabric!

    Rachel, I can tell you are being rather lazy, you should probably make more garments..Oh I am so teasing you! I had to laugh when you remarked that you can just print up a piece if you need it–I have printed one piece for 3 different patterns just this week! You should be very proud of your fantastic work, I often stare at your posts on the facebook group–they are simply divine!
