The Jenny is coming, the Jenny is coming! Do you know how funny it feels to say that sentence with your own name??? (Picture is a gorgeous Sis Boom model I believe her name is Jessica. I am the Jenny, she is the Sis Boom beauty.)
I am just over the MOON excited! The new Sis Boom Jenny Dress for women will be heading out to testers soon and then it will be available for purchase and then we can all have a great big Jenny fest! I am making mine out of Circa! How about YOU?
Circa is yet another absolute masterpiece by Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom. She just keeps hitting these fabric lines out of the park. Just look at the colors. You know I think she is amazing how she can take a group of fabrics and make them have a soft and light look but really once you start matching jewelry and shoes, the fabrics are actually very bright or rather have a bright element to them. I think that is what makes the colors dance off the fabrics. She just amazes me. Jennifer never stop designing! You really are a master at what you do!
I do hope you have properly hoarded these beauties as Lucky Girl is coming around the corner and then Circa is going to become the next Flower Power. Don't say you didn't know you should have stocked up when come 5 years from now you suddenly decide you need one of these prints and you cannot find it for under $80! Go order, go NOW!
I am so honored to have this pattern named after me. Word is I asked so many times for this dress, that the great Sis Boom powers that be, pretty sure that would be customer service George, thought the pattern should have my name on it. My gosh pinch me am I dreaming?!? The Jenny Dress! Gasp! And you know it is going to be GOOD! I have said it once, I will say it a thousand times more, Carla Hegeman Crim is the MASTER pattern writer! She is amazing. I cannot wait to show you what she has done with this dress. There may be a small boutique shop worth of Jenny Dresses wandering around the Texas Hill Country when all is said and done!
So what are you waiting for?!? GO GET YOUR CIRCA NOW and make sure you are following Sis Boom and Scientific Seamstress on Facebook! Join the Scientific Seamstress Lab Group too. Watch out, you enter that Facebook group, you will not ever leave! Nicest group of guys and gals that keep it light and happy. All the inspiring pictures. Well why wouldn't it be awesome when it's Carla and Jennifer that have brought this group together!?! Carla and Jennifer have such great fun loving attitudes and attract the kindest people. It's infectious. It's good! Love those gals!
My nagging worry; I hope I ordered enough Circa. Okay, well, if Jennifer is reading this she is probably laughing her head off as I sent out a public service announcement to her every time I ordered Circa. I have ordered plenty of Circa just hoping I have enough of one print for this dress! Are you wondering about fabric requirements too? If you have the Sis Boom Lucy pattern you can use that chart for a very rough guesstimate as you can see the design is similar(but I would say there is more fabric in the Jenny wouldn't you?) but really if I were you just go get 6 yards of your favorite print(this is my wild guess not an actual suggested amount from Carla). You will have loads left over but is that a bad thing??? I mean after all there has to be some favorite fabric left over for petting and the occasional rolling in. Not that I would know anything about that...ahem.
Meanwhile as we wait for the Jenny Dress I have been doing some other sewing. Several patterns tested and photographed and one more pattern to test and a several more things to photograph. All from uber talented designers, I am so honored to test for them! The Sew Pretty Dresses sweat shop of one has been busy! So stay tuned! I can start sharing them all soon!
