Run Forrest run – the Jenny dress

DSCN1601

I learned everything I know about modeling growing up in the 1970’s.  From a Fig Newton commercial.*

But let’s look at the dress instead of talking about my awkward runway skills.   The pattern is the Jenny dress by Sis Boom Pattern Company.  The fabric is a soft and gorgeous chambray.

I must tell you of my love for patterns by Sis Boom.  They actually include pieces for cup size adjustments.  In my experience with four of their patterns, I can measure and print and the finished garment actually fits on the first try.

This dress is so comfortable and covers everything I want to keep covered.  It is also figure flattering in real life.

*Sad but true.  If you remember the commercial, there was a dude in a Big Fig costume.  He did a song and dance, and did a Lord of the Dance type pose.  Every photo op from my youth, and into my twenties, included my Big Fig pose.  Even now I can barely keep my arms down when my picture is snapped.  The struggle is real, people.
