Several of our pattern testers recently posted photos of their finished fall garments to the Flickr group, and we thought you might like a peek at them for some additional inspiration.
A few Hopscotch skirts and knit tops, to get you started.
This Hopscotch knit top was sewn by TribecaYummyMummy, who tested the pattern for us earlier this summer. This is one of the polka dot interlocks from our upcoming City Weekend fabric collection. And check out the coordinating Hopscotch skirt, made with Heather Ross’s Far Far Away II.
Here is another Hopscotch top and skirt, made by April.
And one more Hopscotch skirt, sewn by Karen, another one of our reliable and dedicated testers.
A few School Photo dresses have also popped up. This one was made by Gail, who tested the pattern and is also one of our Boutique Sewer participants. (By the way, Gail says this is her favorite Oliver + S pattern ever.).
And yet another School Photo dress, sewn by the prolific and precise April, who made this with a heavier wool herringbone. (Warning: I don’t suggest that you attempt heavier fabrics with this dress on the first try. I think it would be rather challenging and was impressed that April made this work so well. And so beautifully, no less. Also, I think it was smart of April to select a printed cotton for the ruffled collar and the sleeve binding, since the herringbone could be scratchy against delicate skin. The rest of the dress is lined, so it’s not such an issue elsewhere.)
And one more adorable School Photo dress, View A sewn by Katy Dill. Visit her blog to see a second version of the dress (View B) and for a chance to win a copy of the pattern.
So there you have it: a little additional sewing inspiration. Now, go have fun! I can’t wait to see what you make with the new patterns.
