“A beautiful pattern that is much easier to sew than it looks. Very flattering. Love it.”

The charming Jamie dress is universally appealing and perfect for all occasions. It makes for a pretty cocktail dress paired with heels, or slide on the flip-flops and head for the beach sundress style. We love it for it's style and comfort, and with Sis Boom’s endless fabric selection you can get the most incredible looks. It complements the female figure sporting a flattering waist and and beautiful neckline. The full, flowing skirt is definitely a throwback to the best of 1960's fashion.

Incredibly simple, wildly flattering. Made myself a template dress out of an old sheet and I love it so much I'll actually wear it. Nice zipper insertion method too. I'll make this one again.

When the dress I was going to wear to a wedding didn't fit, I pulled out this pattern! Jennifer and Carla didn't disappoint yet again, and I was able to make a dress in 2 "days" that fit perfectly, while looking after 3 kids, and running around doing other errands. I love that I can use the pattern again for other sizes. Perfect dress for a teen too! Very comfortable! 10 hours in a dress, and I don't usually wear dresses. Thanks Jennifer and Carla!!!

The Jamie dress turned out beautiful. It was easy to put together and the directions were great but I wish they had guidelines on whether to use the "fullness" in the bust. It's an option and I didn't realize that I didn't need it until it was too late. It's a bummer but it's not something a sock in your bust area (stuffing your boobs) can't solve. The zipper idea just blew my mind. I will never insert another zipper the old way again. I will make another dress for myself with some modifications but it was worth the purchase.

Made my first Jamie for my daughter and loved it. I had been intimidated by zippers, but that was very easy! Beautiful dress!

Sis Boom patterns are always wonderfully detailed. I have had a fear for years of installing zippers but since this pattern i have no fear they have an awesome way of teaching zipper installation. I did have trouble with it zipping after making and i went by measurements and made one size larger and it still didnt zip but overall i love this pattern and will be making

All of Sis Boom's patterns are so easy to make, follow the directions & stitch up! I have experience but also had a novice [13 yr old] working with me to stitch up a gift for her Mama ... she understood all of the directions, photos were perfect! The Jaimie dress looks great on all body shapes, sizes & heights! Have made this is several different fabrics and it is one of my go-to's!

Wow - another great dress pattern for adults. This is simple but sew cute when finished. I have made several of these for myself. I love being able to match my girls! Don't hesitate to get this pattern.

I have made this dress three times, once for my teenage daughter, once for myself, and once for another person. It is easy to follow and makes a great product. It is quick to make as well. I love it.

I love how this dress came out. Directions were easy to follow. I did have to take out the zipper and redo it once. But, I am horrible at zippers. An added bonus for me is that I can still nurse my son without getting undressed due to the elastic in the neckline.

I looove this pattern. Today was my first time to make a big (adult) dress for our teenager (as I always make clothes for our little princess) and this pattern was so easy to follow and the new owner was stoked ... will make more soon.

Another great pattern! The zipper insertion method is very easy to follow. The Jamie dress is very comfortable to wear. I have made a couple of these and I can't wait to make more. I have seen the Jamie on different body shapes (size 2 to plus size) and they look very flattering, no matter what your size is!

This is a flattering pattern for most body types. Instructions are great as this is a Carla C pattern. Love it!

This pattern is very clear and easy to follow. The zipper insertion is the easiest I've ever used. I now use this method for other patterns as well.
I did find I needed to take it in at the side seams--so I would suggest trying the dress on before adding the zipper. :) I made this dress in my hit and miss sewing time over 3 afternoons. Will be making again!!

LOVE the Jamie dress. Carla and Jennifer make this very easy. The zipper goes in so easy with there detailed instructions, way better than any zipper tutorial I have ver seen.
