Tiny Bubbles....

Jennifer Paganelli and I are proud to announce our newest arrival...the Sis Boom Carly Bubble Romper! Carly is the first of a series of Sis Boom Baby patterns, and she is making her debut on!

We just love this little sweetie, which includes separate patterns for sizes preemie, newborn, 3m, 6m, 9m, 12m, 18m, and 24m. Babies grow so fast, and we wanted to cover every stage!

There are 3 sleeve options - sleeveless, ruffled sleeves, and puffed sleeves.

And best of all, this romper is completely and totally reversible (I didn't originally plan it that way, but it worked and I ran with it - LOL)!

There are also multiple options given for the back and crotch fasteners.

These rompers are soooo perfect for personalization with applique or embroidery (think baby shower gifts)! The ruffle-sleeved romper above has the Amanda Fleur 5x7 embroidery design on one side, and the Amanda Fleur fabric on the other, huh? Thanks so much to my friend Laura for the amazing pics of her sweet baby girl, and big thanks also to my team of testers, who made some VERY cute rompers which you simply must check out on the product page over atYCMT!

Easy Fits for everyone!

The Easy-Fits Pants Pattern for Tweens, Teens, and Adults is now available on! It truly is the "grown-up" version of the popular child-sized pattern. Use it to make comfy jammies, casual capris, board shorts...there are so many options!

As always, my awesome testers were incredibly helpful with sizing, accuracy, and keeping me motivated! They were very enthusiastic about the finished product, and I love how their pants came out! Check out their pictures and testimonials!!!

I am now wearing the most comfortable pants EVER!!!! I finished my easy-fits and I LOVE THEM! I made a drawstring waist with a couple of button holes and some ribbon. I made a large and they fit over my belly now and I can cinch the waist for later. (note: this is from the very pregnant tester :) )

The easiest, quickest, most comfortable pants just grew up! Easy Fit Pants, by Carla C. was previously only available for children. Not anymore! With the creation of "Easy Fit Pants for Tweens, Teens and Adults", the entire family can now enjoy the the comfort and ease of the perfect pants! And with the ease that these pants go together, even the beginning seamstress or tailor can outfit an entire family in just a matter of hours! Stitch them up in cozy flannel or fleece for cozy sleep pants. The sports fan would love a pair stitched up in his/her favorite teams licensed fabric. Denim, corduroy or twill will dress this pant up for every day wear. You'll find endless possibilities with this versatile pattern that will quickly become a staple in your pattern file that you will reach for again and again! You won't want to be without either the Easy Fit Pants, or the Easy Fit pants for Tweens, Teens and Adults!

My favorite pattern EVER now comes in every size! Thank you Carla! Easy Fit pants are the simplest most adaptable pattern I have ever used and always the first pattern I recommend to new sewers. I have so much fun creating these in all sorts of styles and fabrics. My tween has outgrown the children's sizes and now I'm thrilled I can make her (okay, and myself as well) Easy Fit pants! I can't wait to get started on matching family pj pants!

YIPPEE one of my favorite kids patterns now in adult sizes for men and women!!! This pattern should be in the pattern hall of fame along with it original easy fits for kids. It is the perfect pattern for comfy pj's or cute comfortable pants. It is probably one of the easiest patterns to make too! It is a must have for everyone!

Big thanks to all of the testers for all of their great feedback and support! I also want to give a big shout out to Mari H., the wonderfully talented and sweet photographer who took the excellent pictures of the pants (lots of 'em) for the cover and product pics!

Sew Comfy...

Oh why oh why didn't I make the grown-up version of the Easy Fit Pants Pattern YEARS ago? Oh well, it is probably a good thing I didn't come up with them sooner because when I put them on I just want to lounge about! The pattern should be out within the next week IF I can get up off the couch to add the last little details. I'll blog more about it next week, but basically it has the same options and easy-peasy construction method as the child's version. The size range goes from XXS to 3XL, so you will be able to make Easy Fits for everybody!

Speaking of comfortable clothing for us grownups, The Sis Boom Shana Tunic is now available on and Etsy. This stylish, relaxed top is just perfect with jeans, leggings, and capris. Jennifer blogged her mama wearing her Shana Tunic a few months back, and I knew it was something my mama would love too...

Isn't she gorgeous? And don't you just love that neckline??? It is perfect for showing off beautiful necklaces...particularly ones like this that are made by Kay Adams. Mom and I are big fans of this talented lady (you might be seeing the both of us on her blog in the coming weeks :) ).
