    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Museum to Communion, 4/27/2015

    Reviewer: (Ireland)

    Chose this pattern to sew my nephew an outfit for his communion that he would love and that wouldn't fall down! I've skinny sized the Sleepover Pajamas for him a couple of times and he has gotten years out of them. The pattern is fab. My first ever welt pockets and I am delighted with how well they turned out. Love you patterns! Such great directions. I learn and improve my skills with every project!


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Art museum pattern, 4/20/2015

    Reviewer: (Pennsylvania )

    I recently finished this pattern for my boys. The outfits came out amazing. The instructions were easy to follow and the outfits look so professional. The pants were a bit long so next time I will size down in the length. Other then that this pattern was amazing! I am extremely happy with the finished product.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Art museum trousers, 12/10/2014

    Reviewer: (ottawa, ontario, canada)

    Love the pattern! The instructions are clear and the images are helpful. The pants run long, but that's fine, as they'll just fit a little longer. I added a longer hem on the leg to be able to roll them up in the meantime.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 loved the finished look, 10/22/2014

    Reviewer: (Arab, alabama, United States)

    I made the trousers out of an argyle print blended fabric. They were adorable. The instructions were clear and precise.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Why I love oliver+s, 9/20/2014

    Reviewer: (Davis, CA, USA)

    I am a grandmother and having been making clothing since I was a teen. I have NEVER found a pattern company that makes the instructions so easy to follow and where everything works perfectly the first time! I generally work in short snippets of time and with oliver+s patterns I do not need to read the step before or the ones following to figure out what I need to do. The patterns are amazingly clear! Thanks

  • Errata

    1. In the first printing of this pattern, there was a minor error on page 4 of the instructions. The second to last sentence of Step 1 under Make the Belt Loops should read, "Cut the two finished belt loops into six 3 1/2" pieces," instead of five pieces.

     

     

    Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern.

    To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers.

    The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing.

    Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.
