ABC, easy as 123

A is for Angie! This super-simple dress was a big hit with our testers, and they all get an A+++ for their great work!

Sara from Sew Sweetness made a beautiful little dress out of Fuchsia Marnie from Jen's Poodle line. She is rocking it with a black belt and leggings! You can read about her testing experience here. She's the one who hosted the great sew-along for our Jamie Dress, so we just knew she would do something amazing with the Angie Pattern.

Here is April, up in wild, wonderful Wyoming! Even though Angie is a sleeveless dress, she shows that it is perfectly suited for cold weather with the right wrap! This gal has to trek half a day to get fabric and notions, but she gets the job done!
She said "Hands down the easiest pattern I have made in a long time. I loved the bias tape and really liked how the elastic went in so easy. "

Ooooh, and here is our dear Jenny Fish, who picked the most darling fabric combo to test Angie AND Leighanna! Her dress makes her feel like a total "Betty" and you can read all about it here!

Here is my girl Cathy (head lab tech for Scientific Seamstress), in her lovely Angie. Check out her blog to see the other amazing things she has been making with Sis Boom Fabric this holiday season!

My good friend Jeanne made an Angie jumper for her beautiful daughter #1. She said "I love and adult dress with no buttons or zippers! So easy to make!"
Stay tuned to see beautiful daughter #2 in her Leighanna.

Shannon made a beautiful Angie, and photographed it on a dress form in front of her tree. Who needs lights and ornaments when you have Sis Boom fabric, right?

OK, here I am in an Angie prototype. Not the best picture, but no one ever likes pics of themselves, right? I wore it with tights and a cardi, and I was warm and comfy all day.

The reason this dress is so darn fast and easy is because the neckline and armholes are finished with bias tape. If you have any concern about sewing on bias tape, don't worry - I give step-by-step instructions in the ePattern. If you want to make your own bias tape, check out my free printable bias tape folder. It is so easy to use...just check out this great video from the Greek site ftiaxto:
