    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Class Picnic shorts, 8/12/2014

    Reviewer: (Cookeville, TN)

    These shorts turned out so nice! Fabulous details that look like they would be difficult, but,as with every O+S pattern I've sewn, Liesl walked me right thru the tricky parts and I had no trouble getting great results. I even lengthened the size 6 to a 7 length. It took some thought with those curved facings, but Liesl's tutorial helped a lot! I would highly recommend this pattern and can't wait to sew up the blouse :)

    I love this pattern. The shorts are so cute and the perfect length. Not too short but not too long! The top is also a quick sew and fun to make for friends' birthdays!


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 An Elegant Peasant!, 7/5/2013

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, SA, Australia)

    When is a peasant blouse not a peasant blouse? When it is designed by Oliver + S! Love love love this blouse pattern, in fact, I have lost count of how many I have made. I have lengthened its hem and sleeves and added an elastic casing. I have decorated the front yoke with pearl buttons. Added sashes and ties.... the list could go on (and so could I). The arm binding is very neat and clever, I blogged a wee tute http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/ive-got-them-class-picnic-neck-band.html The shorts are so groovy. Proper shortie shorts but all the bits that need to be covered are. I love the neat facing and I blogged a tute here if you would like a peep http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/a-short-tutorial-groan.html And how cute is this? http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/7745103580/in/set-72157626639099661/


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 My favorite O+S pattern, 7/3/2013

    Reviewer: (Georgia)

    I have sewn all or part of 13 Oliver + S patterns, and this has to be my favorite one. I've sewn this sweet little top five times, and now that my girls have outgrown all of those, I will sew at least five more for this fall. They are the perfect layering piece for those in-between spring and fall days. This is also a very easy sew and a versatile pattern - you can lengthen it into a dress or omit the sleeves and finish the armholes with bias to make a summery tank top. The straight lines make french seams on the sides a no-brainer, and the yoke construction is such that there are no exposed seams there, either. My only beef is that it is very hard to machine-hem tiny sleeves in the smaller sizes - I get around this problem by either hemming by hand (kind of fun in front of the tv, if I am in the mood), or hemming the sleeves before sewing up the side seams if I'm using a light fabric. Even so, this is definitely my favorite O+S pattern.
