Introducing the Leighanna!!! This peasant dress/top (named for one of our sweetest little fans) has the most darling silhouette and options galore. The bodice can be made with a working drawstring neckline, or with an elasticized mock drawstring for easy dressing. Two separate patterns are provided to make bell or basic sleeves in a range of lengths. Add a bit of elastic to the arm opening and you have a perfect puffed sleeve! Use this pattern to make a billowy dress, a chic top, a nighty, a simple costume, or a great basic layering piece.

Leighanna is for sizes 6/12 months - 13/14 years.

Perfect dress for any occasion! The pattern and instructions are easy to follow and understand. I'm never disappointed when I purchase a Sis Boom pattern.

Used this pattern to make a top for a customer. Instead of using elastic or a drawstring, I acutally pleated and smocked the neckline. Turned out great. This pattern is so simple and the instructions are great.

The Leighanna dress is another great pattern from Carla C. I made it in a lightweight corduroy and left off the tie in front and it turned out great. The bell sleeves with the ball fringe turned out so cute and were so easy! I am already planning my next dress.
