Introducing the Devon, a grown-up spin on one of our popular new girl’s patterns! This peasant dress/top (named for a special Sis Boom girlfriend) has a feminine and playful silhouette with options ranging from ruffles to pom-poms so everyone can have a little fun! You're never too old for pom-poms! The bodice can be made with a working drawstring neckline, or with an elasticized mock drawstring for effortless dressing. Two separate patterns are provided to make bell or basic sleeves in a range of lengths so it's your choice-- you can go classic or kick it up a notch! The Devon will be great year-round-- as a tunic in the summer, or a layered top with jeans in the winter. Who doesn't love that?!

Great pattern and so easy! I was able to make it in a single day and that was with a fussy toddler!

BEAUTIFUL PATTERN. THE TOP WAS A LITTLE BIGGER ON ME THAN I EXPECTED, HOWEVER, I WILL MAKE AGAIN

The size range is great as I can use this for several of my daughters and myself. The thing I do not like about this pattern is that it takes ALOT of paper and ink to print out! I wish she could put multi-sizing on each piece instead of having a seperate page for each size.

Absolutely brilliant! I'm a relative beginner, but I made two of these for myself in a single weekend, so easy to put together and comfortable to wear. I love the fact that there are so many style variations available, and that I can print off different sizes. This was my first attempt at sewing a downloadable pattern, which I have always been a little wary of, but not any more. I've now purchased 4 more patterns More Sis Boom patterns please!!

I love everything Carla C and Sis Boom, my only thing with this pattern is it runs a bit slim in the chest. I wish it went up one more size to accomodate for the chest area. Carla C's patterns are my go to patterns for anything I need.

Great pattern, great instructions. Made one for myself in an afternoon and plan on making several more! Size chart was very helpful and accurate, my dress fits perfectly!

I made this top for myself and it turned out perfect!! Love the pattern so much I know I'd come back to this one time and again when sewing for a new top.
McGhee, Elaine - March 6th, 2012
Love the pattern! I can print out the pattern pieces, but try as I may, I can't print out the instructions. Is anyone else having this problem?
