Sis Boom Style Summer to Fall

Make a dress with Sis Boom cotton prints

 Photographed by Jennifer Wiggins of

I just adore these precious dresses from Judy Buchanan.  I am working on an article for the September magazine focusing on how Judy uses her sewing talent to create beautiful pieces for her Etsy store (Hickity Pickity).  I thought you all would love a sneak peek and the opportunity to get your hands on the fabric before it is out of print. Sometimes, that can be the case by the time we go to press with an issue.

The photographer, Jennifer Wiggins of Forty Toes Photography, actually shared the photos with us and told us about Judy’s work. The combination of Jennifer’s photography and the cool colors chosen by Judy made us think of fall transition and back to school. In most of the country, children return to school while it is still very warm outside.  However, these dresses can extend into fall with a sweet t-shirt underneath or a cardigan sweater on top when the climate turns cooler. Get started now to get the most out of your sewing efforts this summer, then push it right into fall with a few added layers.

Judy made these dresses using the “Liddy” pattern from Juvie Moon and fabrics from Sis Boom fabrics by Jennifer Paganelli (available at While you can buy these ready-to-wear dresses from Judy’s Etsy store, you can also buy the pattern and fabric to make them like she did. We thought you might enjoy the inspiration.

Fabric prints are in limited quantity, so buy now before this collection is out of print. To view all the prints, patterns and books by Jennifer Paganelli at Martha Pullen Co, click here Jennifer Paganelli .

  2. No, Thank YOU for your inspiration, not just with great design ideas, but to encourage people to use their talents for a lucrative business.
    I totally love the images from Forty Toes, Jennifer Wiggins is an amazing photographer with a real talent for shooting fashion and children (both very difficult to do).
