Oliver + S has turned 10 years old and they're having a big sale as part of their celebrations. For the next week, those new to Oliver + S have an incredible opportunity to fill out their pattern library. 10 patterns for $50!
I love Oliver + S. Let me officially join the many other sewists and say that each of the patterns I've sewn has been a sewing lesson for me. I stumbled onto Oliver + S paper patterns on clearance at a local craft store shortly after I started sewing for my daughter. I was so lucky I did! I learned the basics of sewing from my Grandma when I was young, but really hadn't sewed since junior high. Oliver + S taught me how to create heirloom quality clothes with professional finishes. I am a much better sewist because of them.
Here are just a few of the Oliver + S patterns I've sewn over the last 4 years:
|Reversible jacket from the Lullaby Layette Set|
|Class Picnic blouse and shorts|
|Garden Party Dress|
|Bodysuit from the Lullaby Layette Set|
|Ruffled halter (free pattern!)|
|Red riding hood from Little Things to Sew|
|Building Block Dress|
|Music class blouse|
|Modified Field Trip raglan|
|Another Building Block Dress|
|School Bus T-shirt|
I'm pretty bad at documenting all my makes with a picture (let alone a good picture!), so there are many more treasured Oliver + S makes outgrown and residing in closets. You can also find a few more on this blog, along with pattern reviews, by searching the oliver + s label. My goal this year is to sew up more of the patterns I own but haven't sewn yet. Next up on the cutting table are a set of swingset skirts for Easter. Which Oliver + S pattern are you sewing next?
