To celebrate the release of City Weekend and to thank all of you who have supported the line, we decided to do a little giveaway.

Courtesy of Moda, we have a jelly roll, a layer cake, and a selection of assorted yardage to offer to three lucky winners. To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment telling us what you plan to sew this season. We’ll pick our three winners on the morning of Wednesday, October 20. On that day, comments will close, and we’ll announce the winners in a final comment. One entry per person, please, and good luck.



  1. Janell

    For Fall, from the Oliver+S line, I’m planning on making a School Days jacket. For myself, I’m planning on making a RenFaire costume πŸ™‚

  2. What a great giveaway. Currently I am finishing up a Tree Frog halloween costume for my daughter. I have bought the fabric to make and tailor a custom suit for myself, muslin in process right now. I also plan on Holiday dresses for my wife and daughter, this year’s color scheme is purple. And hopefully some personalized handmade gifts for friends and family.

  3. andria

    I have lots of plans for sewing. I need to find a back for a quilt, then two quilts are off to be quilted. Just started cutting out a new twin quilt.

  4. I’m planning on sewing more quilts (I have just one quilt to my name so far, loved sewing it and then neglected to sew any more for about a year), so some city weekend fabric would be perfect!

  5. Bonney

    What a fantastic giveaway!! My plan is to make a baby quilt that I hope will become a family heirloom. I think this fabric is so special and just perfect for this project!

  6. Amber

    My project is to make a quilt for my son that has all of his special clothes from his first year in it. It is a big project..and my first quilt!

  7. Staci

    The next two items on my sewing list are the School Photo Dress and the Music Box Jumper, both for my 3 year old princess. I also hope to pick up the Hopscotch Skirt pattern to try my hand at sewing with knits for the first time.

  8. hmmm, i would love to sew my girls some christmas dresses. maybe with the school photo dress pattern? i’m very tempted.

  9. Alice S

    Yea for the giveaway! I’m working on Christmas ornaments (mittens) for gifts. I hope to sew some Oliver + S clothes for my daughter.

  10. right now making lots of fall clothes for my girls…hoping to make the world’s largest picnic quilt for the family for christmas:)

  11. Jennifer

    With 5 grandkids under 5, I had better find something quick to sew! Two granddaughters are getting dresses – maybe the School Picture dress would be cute on the two little toddlers. The three rambunctious boys would be adorable in different variations of the Nature Walk Pullover.

  12. Johanna O

    I’ve got a lot on my plate for the fall… Bedtime Story P.J.’s for holiday gifts for the kids and cousins, 2 more Christmas outfits (I already have one down). I’d like to make 2-3 more Hopscotch dress/tunic and Nature Walk Pants as a “everyday” option for my daughter who has finally consented to wear pants again.

  13. Marlena

    I would love to try the new knit fabric. I just made my first knit dress for Halloween and finally tamed the serger. I would sew the new Oliver + s knit pattern for my daughter.

  14. Bobbie23nc

    We’re expecting our first grandbaby the first of the year so my list of projects is a mile long to start as soon as the Christmas sewing is finished.

  15. Jamie

    Wow! I’d love to win a giveaway! Since I’ve just gotten a new serger, I’m dying to make some knit dresses and tunic tops for my daughter. And I’d love to use some of your lovely fabrics to do it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. I’ a french sewer so i don’t know if i can win but it doesn’t matter πŸ™‚
    I have lots of plans for sewing. Has to begin with 2+2 blouse for my baby ….

  17. Elaine

    I have a lot of things I would love to sew up– quilts, curtains, and baby blankets are at the top of my list… oh and I want to make some Christmas stockings!

  18. Jen

    Dresses, pjs anda few Christmas gifts.

  19. Samantha

    I already have some diaper wipes and burp cloths cut out, and a storage bag for toys. What I’m really looking forward to is the Birthday Party Dress. I have the pattern already and am determined to fit in between now and my daughter’s first birthday in March.

  20. mel

    This season I’m working on filling my daughter’s chifforobe before beginning grad school in Jan., so that throughout fall and winter (maybe even into spring?!) she can wear Mommy made goodies. I know my sewing will have to take back seat and that makes me sad.

    Thanks for the chance!!

  21. I have a ton of stuff on my “to sew” list: an ice cream blouse, jump rope dress, several skirts, and a school days coat. And that’s just the top of the list…

  22. Krystal P

    Have recently been making Mop Top hats from Bridget and Lucy patterns with the Michael Miller knits, and would love to have some City Weekend knits to make more! Currently cutting out the sailboat top to sew up today.

  23. Hi, what a wonderful giveaway, thankyou! I currently have the Tea Dress pattern and have already amassed a stash of three different fabrics I want to make the dress from. I will make one dress from two pretty cottons I have, and then another dress in flannel, and finally the playsuit in flannel too. I think a flannel playsuit will be so cute for the winter teamed with bright tights!

  24. Samantha

    This season, I’m making Christmas dresses for my girls and I’m hoping to make some doll clothes for Christmas gifts. And if I have time, I have several more casual dresses I would like to make.

  25. I have so many things I’d like to sew this season. I’ve got plans to make some kids clothes, specifically the Sketchbook Shirt and the Sailor Shirt and Pants/Skirt. I’m also working on some baby bibs for gifts and etsy and hopefully finish up a quilt! I’d love to try out the interlock knits in your beautiful new fabric and patterns too!

  26. Belinda

    With a new grandson(my very first) I am in the throes of indecision about what to sew next. So I am concentrating on the holiday season: Halloween, Christmas, Mardi Gras, and then Easter when he will be almost a year old and I can really go all out on a linen shortall!! Oh, such fun!!!

  27. robin

    I’m soon going to be starting a twin size quilt for my daughter, using a pattern from Moda Bakeshop. First I have to finish a wallhanging I’m quilting. Last night my dog chewed (and ruined!) up my quilting thread spool and the local quilt shop was out of the right color, so no quilting for me today! I’d love to win something… :o) thanks for the opportunity!

  28. Bethany

    Some fall PJ’s for the kiddos are a must

  29. Dana F

    I am planning to sew my daughter the Sunday Brunch jacket & skirt for my daughter for the holidays. For my nieces and nephews, I will be sewing little messenger bags to carry their things in when they visit us in the new year. For myself, I would like to sew a new ruffled duvet in vibrant colors for my dream bedroom. That project may not be completed before years end though. But that’s okay – I love sewing for the littles.

  30. Right now I’m working on a Cinderella dress for my little princess! After that I want to make a couple throw quilts for Christmas gifts. I would LOVE to use a little of the City Weekend in one of them!

  31. robin

    For my nieces- I have two Music Class skirts in progress, and have the Music Box jumper lined up next!

  32. christina

    I’m making colonial and prairie girl dress up outfits. They’re on my 4 year old’s christmas wish list. Oddly enough, she declined to be either one for halloween — that’s all about the fairy costume she already has, fortunately.

  33. Betsy

    I’d love to start a new quilt soon!

  34. planning to make some holiday gifts, a couple of entries for our guild quilt show, a baby quilt for a baby due in March, and….

  35. Some baby clothes…I’m due in May!

  36. Sara

    The ice cream social dress and several Kindle covers for Christmas presents. Also, a quilt for a very special baby:)

  37. Since I just had my first baby – baby clothes! Lots and lots of baby clothes!

  38. Wonderful giveaway! This season I’m making all my Christmas presents, so I’ll be sewing lots of gifts! πŸ™‚

  39. Max S.

    I am making over 100 cloth napkins to use at my wedding, as well as assorted experimentation in clothing for myself and my son. And maybe a quilt. Cause I have TONS of time, what with planning a wedding and all…ha!

  40. I’m thinking I would make a quilt for me with the jelly roll and layer cake. Something I could cuddle up with this winter and read a good book. And so I’m not completely selfish, I’m sure I could find something to make for my kids with the assorted yardage.

  41. I’ve been busy sewing up quillows for my kids and nieces and nephews. Also working on a twin-size quilt for my son’s 6th birthday. When that’s done (phew!) I’d like to start work on a quilt somewhat like this one– http://www.handmadebyalissa.com/land-sea-quilt-all-finished/ –for my daughter’s 4th birthday. The City Weekend fabrics would be perfect!

  42. Jamie

    Baby blankets! Also when I find the time, I’m going to make a duvet cover and pillowcases for my bed.

  43. I’ve been wanting to pick up a layer cake to make blocks for my little one. I plan to print photos of far away family members for some of the sides and oliver + s prints for the others. that’s just one of the (many) things I have planned.

  44. Angela

    There are way too many items on my sewing list! But up next are five picnic blankets to giveaway as Christmas gifts.

  45. Kimberly

    How exciting! I’m making a 2+2 blouse and skirt for my younger daughter to coordinate with her older sister’s school photo dress.

  46. Emily

    Nature walk pants and another Ice Cream Dress!

  47. Morgan

    I plan to sew more clothing for my daughter–another sailboat top in knit fabric, and maybe some knit pants. I also want to try my hand at patchwork again (it has been a long time since I’ve done any)…maybe some pillow covers to start. Love the fabric line!

  48. Charlotte

    First of all, congratulations on the City Weekend fabric. I’m excited to see some in person and am tempted by those knits! As far as my sewing plans, I just made 17 Harry Potter robes for my son’s 7th birthday party, and I’m eager to do a little sewing for myself! I have been eyeing Colette pattern’s Crepe wrap dress. My daughter is growing like a weed (she will be 3 on Friday!) and could use a new stock of simple dresses, so that’s on my radar, too. But it’s hard to work full time, raise two kids and do all the sewing I wish I could do! (as the Harry Potter robes might indicate, though, I’m not afraid to tackle ambitious projects).

  49. School clothes, school clothes, school clothes. Maybe also a cuddly girls’ robe.

  50. ali

    Maybe you should have asked me to list what I wasn’t sewing this season! I have a couple of quilts, some skirts and dresses for myself and my daughter, and the usual small projects that seep in the middle of all of that. Also, I’d like to try making one of Amy Butler’s new handbags.

  51. Anita

    I love your fabric and patterns! I’d love make a coat for my daughter and I’m finishing up a quilt for my husband. thanks!

  52. My daughter is finishing the GCSE this summer, so she asked me to make her a dress. It’s going to be an elegant, 50ties dress with three quarter long sleeves and a skirt with lots of volume.
    We have decided to make a test dress which will be done before Christmas.
    I’m so thrilled that she asked me to make it. :))

    And then I simply have to sew the Music Box dress – I have seen so many lovely versions of it, and now I have to make my own.

  53. I’ve been sewing some school clothes for my 4 year old niece who just started preschool. I already made a little corderoy school photo dress for her to wear to class, which she loves- so probably that pattern will be coming out again soon. πŸ™‚

  54. FP Wear

    I’ve been loving Noodlehead’s Runaround Bag pattern, so I’ve got another one of those on the cutting table. With 3 babies due in our circle of friends in December (including ours) and another 2 in February, I think that some baby gift sewing will be in order. Tops will be a circus quilt for our kidlet, but I think that I’d like to do another crib size quilt or two and possibly a few diaper bags. We’ll have to see!

  55. I can’t wait to sew clothes and a quilt for my daughter, who is turning one in just a few weeks. And then there are quilts to be made for arriving babies, and gifts for the family (potholders, tote bags, pajama bottoms, oh my!).

  56. I plan to make a floor cushion for my daughter – and then for my sons too!

  57. Iris

    I would like to start working my way through the Oliver + S “sewing lessons” (i.e., easiest to hardest).

  58. I plan on sewing all my daughters summer clothes (NZ) but in reality maybe a couple of carefree dresses.

  59. sue

    I have a hundred and one things to sew!!! Dizzy Dinos for the boys, a new doll for my baby girl, Playdate dresses for my neices, curtains for the bedroom… it’s never ending but i love it!!

  60. My project pile overflows already, mostly with clothes for my daughter (almost 7)–some Ottobre blouses and skirts, a Japanese sewing book dress, and two jumprope dresses. I also have three of the new patterns O+S and need to figure out how to incorporate those into my plans! Oh and DD is getting an American Girl doll for her birthday next week and I am hoping to teach her to sew for it a bit!

  61. Claire

    I’m sewing dolls for my baby girl and my niece, a backpack and pants for my nephew, a dress or two for my girl and maybe a dress for me.

  62. I have nightgowns, shirts, and pants, oh my!

  63. I have nightgowns, shirts, and pants, oh my!

  64. Janet McG

    I am not the matchy matchy type, but now that I have two girls ages 3 and 2 months I want to sew two of everything. One big. One small. I am starting with the Ice Cream Social Dress.

  65. Becky

    I plan on sewing 2 quilts – ome for my daughter in college, and a matching one for her little cousin, who will be 18 months old at Christmas. I think the pictures will be a lot of fun!

  66. lou

    hm…. on the *make list* currently: an advent calendar of some sort, slippers for as many people as i can, i’ve got another ice cream dress cut out for my daughter, and once i’ve finished making sailboat top & pants, i’ll get another oliver + s pattern – they are my favourites!

  67. Phoebe

    I’m sewing a dog bed cover for my new puppy, is that pathetic? She’s sleeping on an old towel right now and it’s breaking my heart. After that, I plan on finishing up my “fall” quilt and then a Lady Grey jacket.

  68. chandra

    My mother spoiled me by buying some gorgeous fabric to make myself a maternity top. I never sew for myself, so hopefully it works out.

  69. I have a purse for a swap I need to make. When that is done, I have a couple quilts that I’m really hoping to work on. They will both require handwork, which I’m kind of looking foward to. When I’m months into the project, we’ll see if I’m still enjoying it! πŸ™‚

  70. I’ve got a quilt I’m working on. As well as some pillow slipcovers and baby crib sheets.

  71. I have just finished a candle mat swap, in the middle of a hexagon quilt, have four half finished projects for ModaBakeShop, three other unfinished bed quilts for relatives and two birthday quilts to make this month. I just love the City Weekend range and have a great project planned for the fabric.

  72. After one successful attempt, I’ll be making more hooded fleece tops for my little girl.

  73. Great giveaway! I’m doing skirts, dresses and PJ’s!!! LOTS of them!

  74. I owe my 4 year old a quilt, and she asks me if I have made it almost daily. So yeah, I am making a twin sized quilt!

  75. heidi

    On my sewing to-do list: a cheerleader costume for little girls halloween costume, lots of hopscotch dresses, fleece pullovers for adults and kids (nature walk) on my Christmas list, a jumprope (view b) dress made from a lovely brown cord with horses embroidered on it, matching neckties for my boys to wear at Christmas and a matching dress for their sister, music box maybe??? Love your new fabric line, especially the yellows and blue/greens!

  76. Heather J.

    I’m knee-deep in Halloween costumes at the moment (a ninja and Wendy Darling), but after that I am planning to dig into a sewing with knits e-course that I’m taking, and I’m anxious to get some of the CW knits to try out with those projects. Plus, I just picked up a copy of the sandbox pants pattern and some brown corduroy, so that’s on the fall list as well. And my kids are quickly outrowing all of their pajamas. And I want to try out some long skirts for myself. Yikes!

  77. Lotta

    I hope to make a dress or two for my girls. The School Photo dress is growing on me and I really would like to make one for my big girl.
    The Birthday Dress is a must for the little one. I’ve been planning on making that for months.

  78. I’ve got oodles of dresses to make for my little one… and maybe some more sketchbook shirts for my big boy too..

  79. table runners. i’m all about table runners these days.

  80. Jenny

    OH!!! I’m excited about this one. I have several of your patterns so I was planning on making a Hopscotch skirt in a woven and the Hopscotch top in one of the new knits. I love the fabric and the new patterns!

  81. Oh what a fab giveaway! I’m halfway through making the lovely school days coat for my little nephew and a trench coat for myself.

  82. N. Monnette

    I’ve been wanting to sew an Advent calendar of some sort!

    I’m planning to sew every new fall pattern that came out this year. I love Oliver and S!

  85. I am still working on the School Days jacket for Ahnalin and plan to purchase the Music Lessons pattern to make up for her. I LOVE your patterns!

  86. I plan to sew pretties for my baby girl!

    Oh there are so many projects that I have lined up… I’m a newbie to sewing–but am feeling rather ambitious. I am planning to sew the ruffle top halter & the tea party dress for my little one. (That’s at the top of my list!). I also need to finish sewing her baby quilt… while she’s still a baby… and then there’s the Christmas projects (flax seed pillows and embroidered buckwheat hull pillows). GAH! So many projects, so little time.

  91. Zoe

    My next project is the Sunday Brunch jacket in wool. Also finishing up a quilt for my daughter.

  92. Oh, how lovely! Hmmm, where to start. I’m currently making a black knit shift dress for myself, but I’d love to make some more clothes for my daughter…and I’d also really love to have a go at making a shirt for my husband.

  93. polly

    Small, bite-sized, do-able projects are my favorite right now. With three pre-schoolers that is about all I can manage. Simple doll clothes, shooting stars, little pouches & baggies…and whatever else the kids ask for! That is what I will be making. Always looking for lovely bits of fabric for these lovely babes of mine.

  94. I’m making a ton of hoilday related things. Starting with Christmas stockings and Music Box Jumpers.

  95. DianeY

    I just took some of your knits out of the dryer & am ready to start a Hopscotch top. The knits are so soft I could cry! Can’t wait to get some quilting cotton-I have a charm pack so I could see all the designs, but I’m having a hard time narrowing it down-all so cute!

  96. doll clothes and a school photo dress are on the list and a few quilts

Last night I cut out the Hopscotch skirt while she helped me. She’s going to be one well dressed little girl this Summer!

  101. Heather L

    I would love to sew a school photo dress for my 3.5 year old…the only thing stopping me is her pickiness! Sometimes she refuses to wear the things I make and it’s driving me crazy! I may stick to something for myself…we’ll see! Lovely fabrics!

    Thanks for the chance — I LOVE the fabrics πŸ™‚

  119. Katja Magus

    We are moving soon, as you know, so I still have two wool coats to finish (luckily for the larger boys, that grow slower!) and then a new wardrobe for my youngest as the last one I made (earlier this fall- 5 shirts, 5 pants, a vest, jacket and three pairs of pjs!) is too big for this season…back to the “sewing” board!

  120. I am working on a Tinkerbell Halloween costume and various other little fall/winter clothes for my kids.

  121. Karen

    How lovely! How ever did you know that I needed one more layer cake to make a quilt for my baby daughter? The very sight of the patterns and colors of this collection make my heart flutter.

  122. I hope to make quilts for my kids…and of course an Oliver and S outfit or two.

  123. With a new baby on the way, together with two boys, I have heaps of sewing planned. I have shirts and shorts and quilts to do. I have a cradle to get ready for a newborn, a couple of bedrooms to redecorate and bags and Christmas presents and clothes for me as well!

  124. It is spring here and I have just made a Jump Rope Dress for one daughter and I am planning 2 more for my other daughters.

  125. Nicole

    I plan on sewing the Music Box dress for a uniform in khaki and the School Photo dress also for a uniform and in a shantung silk for Christmas (maybe I can find an eggplant color). Oh yes, I want to make some sort of bubble hem skirt to go with a crisp white Music Class collarless blouse for thanksgiving. For myself, if I can just find something to go with knee high boots I’d be cool. You’ll see them all on burdastyle.com. I’m Morphomixstress!!

  126. Hilary

    Right now I am working on a mermaid costume, but as soon as I finish that I will be back to making Ice Cream dresses. I have completed one and have plans for two more I think. Then I was thinking of trying a Jump Rope dress, oh, and I also am thinking about trying my hand at a quilt.

  127. michelle in fl

    I would love to start a new quilt, but the stress of putting fabrics together has kept me away….until this opportunity! I would love to turn these lovelies into a spread for my 3-yr-old little girl’s bed. Thanks!

  128. I’m sewing up several versions of the Hopscotch Skirt and Top, and a Tea Party Sundress to go with my grown-up sized Colette Parfait.

  129. KristenA

    I just received an order of two O&S patterns from Pink Chalk Studios–the Jumprope Dress and the School Photo Dress. Can wait to make them both for my girls!

  130. I’m currently finishing up a Sleeping Beauty costume. Then it’s on to a bed quilt for my 4-year-old, and then lots of baby things for the baby on the way!

  131. I am nearly finished with my daughters’ Halloween costumes (a dragon and a viking!) and then will move on to Christmas presents! Lots of bags and a quilt or two!

  132. I plan to sew baby gifts, does anyone else feel like everyone they know is pregnant?!

  133. I have many quilts planned, including a City Weekend string quilt!

  134. I plan to sew more dresses for my daughter, a gift for a pregnant friend, and some new nursing shirts for me!

  135. Lisa Michelle

    Thank-you so much for a chance at your lovely fabric! I am currently finishing off new pillow/cushion covers for our livingroom. A first for me as I sewed the front in patchwork and knit the back. Once they are completed I will be cross-stitching & sewing a linen stocking for my Mom for Christmas. Oh, and I have a quilt in the works and I just bought some of your lovely knits for yet another project (still be to determined) and my dog needs a sleeping jacket (he shivers at night…poor thing)and….you get the picture!

    BTW I love love your patterns and the new line did not disappoint! Congratulation!

  136. I want to start tackling clothes and especally ones using knit fabric. I’m sure it’s not as hard as I think it is.

  137. I have four nieces so lots of dresses (icecream and school photo in particular) and dolls. Plus some other ‘cool dude’ toys for my son and nephew. I also have 3 baby blankets to make for unborn bubs plus a big girl blanket for one niece and a blanket for my son. Hmmm – over committing myself perhaps, especially when due to return to work in 3 weeks!

    @ Caitlin – yes, it does seem as though everyone is pregnant!

  138. I have a first birthday quilt to work on but first a princess dress for halloween.

  139. nicole keller

    Goodness, where do I start…. Swing Set’s for Little and Small One, Tea Parties and Puppet Show’s for the two youngest as well.
    Another casual School Photo dress for the twins, Hopscotch skirts and tops for all the girls. Ditto Music Box, new Bedtime pj’s….
    The Son would like the Nature Walk outfit.
    Thats for starters…..

  140. Thank you for doing this!

    I just got the sail boat pattern, and I’ll be making bottoms in corduroy. I have City Weekend tree top and cafe dots in turquoise, and street stripe in river blue. I’ll be making assorted tops and dresses with these. I’ll be using up my stash to make tea party, ice cream and bubble dresses. That’s the plan!

  141. I have been sewing hats like crazy this week for our team to wear in the Buddy Walk this weekend {our team name is Mari’s MAD HATTERS} and I have tried a few bags and simple blankets and need to get going on some more of those soon. But what I *really* need to get started on are the matching PJ pants for the family for Christmas. πŸ™‚

  142. I have a few quilts on my list, and I definitely plan on making a few hopscotch dresses in your wonderful city weekend knits. And now that I have seen those pants on S, my S and her little sister are going to need some.

  143. Melissa

    So many projects come to mind. . .Definitely a few cute dresses for my little lovlies and probable some new pjs too. Can’t wait to get me hands on the new fabrics!

  145. Kim

    Dresses and dolls for my nieces!

  146. MJ

    I am working on sewing as much of my children’s wardrobes as possible. I am appalled at what passes as age appropriate clothing for little girls these days! So glad I can just make my own like my Mom did for me! πŸ™‚

  147. I would like to make a few bedtime story pj’s in flannel and perhaps a school days jacket. Oh and a bunch of tiny cute things for the soon-to-be-born boy…

  148. I plan to sew an entire wardrobe for my 7 year old son, all his old clothes don’t fit anymore!

  149. kylie

    Im planning on sewing a few pairs of the short version of the sanbox pants for my boys to muck around the house in. Then a few special pieces from my prized ottobre collection for them. Then it will be on to me,a nice new dress and a skirt or two is needed for this summer.

  150. amisha

    i am planning to sew dresses, and perhaps a coat… and some quilts for wee new arrivals!

  152. Jeni

    Hm, funny you should ask… The Music Box Jumper, of course!

  153. Lea

    I’d like to use up some scraps I accumulated. I’m thinking placemats, coasters and maybe a small quilt if I feel ambitious. Also, I want to try and make some clothes for myself.

  154. Jackie H

    Welp, the one thing that I’m going to sew for sure is my grandma’s quilt…I have the fabric all laid out for it…that counts as a start, eh? πŸ™‚

  155. I am going to finish two Ice Cream Dresses, attempt the School Photo Dress and make a few pairs of the Sandbox pants.

    I need to sew a Ming-Ming duckling costume for Halloween.

    I am also going to squee when I get the City Weekend fabric I ordered from Hancock’s of Paducah tomorrow!

  157. Catherine

    I’m working on kimono pajamas for kids and dolls for Christmas, stocking advent calendars, sleeping bags for kids and dolls, and lots of clothes, including ice cream and music box dresses. Can’t wait to see the new fabric in person. Congratulations!

  158. Margy Sansbury

    I am helping GD Sophia (6) make a quilt for her sister Lucy’s (2) baby for Christmas. Precut MODA squares have made the work more enjoyable to us both πŸ™‚

  159. Jenny L

    I’m tackling Christmas dresses for my girls this year – they’re both getting School Photo Dresses in deep jewel tones of fine wale corduroy. If I get my act together and actually finish them by Christmas, I’ll be a happy camper!

  160. Elizabeth G

    I plan to sew some nursing covers for some friends who are expecting babies and to finish up two quilts I’m currently working on. Thanks so much for the giveaway – I love the City Weekend line!

  161. Heather

    Hoping to sew a lot of baby items, lots of friends expecting in the next two months!

  162. In line for sewing: a mummy costume, a princess cape, ruffle butt overalls, a hoodie to toddler dress recon, three flower girl dresses, several toddler sized cloth napkins, a 2+2 shirt to go with ruffle butt overalls, and three reconned hoodies that are cut out and are waiting to be magically sewn by elves in the night.

  163. I am in a crazy dressmaking mood; sewing lots of prim women’s dresses. Inspired by details on old children’s clothing.

  164. Barbara Brown

    Some items for the craft fair in November, and maybe some Christmas presents if time permits.

  165. Isabella

    I plan to sew a couple Halloween costumes (for the husband and I since the kid’s costume is already done), some placemats for Thanksgiving, and a few stuffed animals. This should get me through the end of October…lots more in the works through the holiday season. πŸ™‚

  166. Kate Conley

    I’m looking forward to making pajamas with the nature walk pants and hopscotch dress pattern, as illustrated in the blog post from last week. I’d like to make matching sets for my daughter and her older cousin and give them as Christmas gifts. So cuite!

  167. markywmurray

    I just ordered four O&S patterns to sew for my grand daughter for school this year. 2+2,School Photo dress, Ice Cream Dress and Sailboat set.

    Love your patterns and fabric.


  168. Wendy

    I plan to sew 1780s dresses for my daughter and myself. And possibly a christening gown for my baby due this winter.

  169. So much to sew this fall! Sandbox pants, a new School Days coat, Bedtime pajamas, Sketchbook shirts! My plan is to make most of my son’s fall/winter wardrobe and supplement with a few store-bought things.

  170. Holly

    I plan to sew, in addition to the hopscotch knit top, a kimono for each of my daughters. They and my husband have been into learning about Japan lately and made a pair of “geta” (wooden slippers) for them to wear.

  171. Mandy

    I am another Aussie sewer. I have just purchased my first Oliver + S pattern, the Hopscotch skirt, online & can’t wait for it to arrive. I sew a lot using the 100% cotton quilting fabrics, but my daughter is definitely more a knit girl. She also loves a good dress & skirt, so the Hopscotch pattern is just perfect really. Did I say that I can’t wait for my pattern to arrive (ha, ha!!)

  172. Patty Creel

    Made School Photo Dress last week and DD loves the kangaroo pocket! Binding a Wee Woodland baby quilt: Moda Bake Shop boy twin quilt recipe. Waiting for Hopscotch Skirt and Knit Top patterns to arrive by mail. Local Quilt Shop hasn’t gotten City Weekend in yet, so may have to order online. Thanks for Flicr photos and forum comments, everyone.

    anyhow, i basically have lots of plans for stuff for my kids and a couple of gifts. I have fabric all ready for 2 OS patterns, but who knows when i will get to them. i hate tracing off patterns in my teeny 1 bdrm apt. I end up on my hands and knees on the floor. All my prep work for sewing is back breaking

  187. Because I am such a slow seamstress, I want to start on a bunch of Christmas presents. Also, my first baby will be celebrating his first birthday on Christmas Eve so I have a little “honey do” list addressed to myself for that event, as well πŸ™‚

    (I love your patterns and I am excited to go and see your fabrics!)

  188. Lori K.

    Corduroy dresses for my granddaughter. Pincushions for Christmas gifts. Taggie blankets. And much more.

  189. Tricia

  202. I’d love to make a quilt for my new baby cousin due March ’11.

  203. I’m halfway through cutting out a School Days Jacket in Heather Ross FFA II. I can’t wait to make it for my six year old. I’m smart though. I’m making it in a 7 because that’s how old she’ll be by the time I get around to sewing it.

  204. Dasha W.

  207. Carolyn

    I’m just learning to sew with knits. I’m super excited about the City Weekend knits and can’t wait to sew with them. I have the Nature Walk pattern and plan to make pants for sons. Right now I’m making a long version of the sail boat trousers in corduroy. When I get a bit more comfortable with knits, I plan to try the sail boat top in a knit.

    Coming into an Australian summer, I’m working on a number of little vintage and vintage-style sweet dresses for my two girls. I have the patterns (Oliver+S included – really goes without saying), some of the fabrics I’d like to use, but not all (again – that goes without saying too I suppose), all I need is a few extra hours in the day…

  220. Zoe

    I am about to embark on two Sunday brunch jackets in corduroy. Then the obligatory matching skirts and, after seeing your earlier post I have also just ordered some city weekend interlock to make some nature walk pants. Add to that 5 dresses for Christmas presents, a cape for me and some winter trousers…………….and something starry for bik-nok and something for my man for je n’ai rien a me mettre………and by the time all that is done I expect I will have at least another ten things on the list!

    Thanks for offering the giveaway, and making your patterns so enjoyable to sew from.

  223. I’m working on clothes for all 4 of my kids. I have a few Oliver+S plans. Most notably, the sandbox pants and the Sunday Brunch jacket. My big sewing plan for this fall/winter is slipcovers for our much abused couch and chairs!

  224. Amanda

    I am spending the fall out of the country, far from my sewing machine. But I am making plans for lots of little boy sewing once I’m back! And I’ll knit in the meantime…

  225. It’s summer down-under, so it’s spring dresses and a few quilts for me! – kb

  226. Kim

    I’m planning to sew a baby quilt for my BFF who’s pregnant with a baby girl πŸ™‚

  230. Sally

    Some Christmas pjs out of the great knit for my 2 girls, among a lot of other things.

  231. Kirsten

    I want to venture into knits with the new Oliver + S patterns, and I have two jumprope dresses in very early stages. I also need to finish a baby gift quilt! I’d also like to figure out how to make a nice quality, but not too complicated, kids backpack – the ones at the stores are not too exciting.

  232. Brieanne P

    What an exciting give-away!! What am I making? This is like asking for an essay, I have a nearly 5 and nearly 3 yr old and Im trying to make everything for christmas/halloween/birthdays….an ice cream cress (in dr seuss to match converse shoes!) a 2+2 set, 2 sets of bedtime story jammies(in seuss!), 2 pairs of matching slippers, 2 sailboat tops, 14 stuffed octupus to giveaway at a party, 14 treat bags, a Dr Seuss backpack, dolls for my little one and her closest friend, a school photo dress in orange(for school photos next week, lol) a school photo dress in pink as a gift,a sketchbook top for christmas fancy clothes, a jump rope dress to match it,a play apron/hat/oven mitt set, a dress out of knits (my first knit project. not so scary) and I can’t think of the rest this early in the morning! My quilting takes a break in the fall when this all starts, but I have 5 quilts on the go come January! Thanks for the chance to share that with a bunch of folks I don’t know…when I show my hubby its really touch and go wether or not he’s actually paying attention!

  233. I’d love to manage sewing something nice for me… A dress or an elegant top… I need more time for that, I think !

  234. I plan to sew lots! I want to sew a Bubble dress in silk and velvet for Christmas wear for DD#2. I also plan a 2+2 skirt, a sailboat skirt (and possibly pants), and the Hopscotch skirt and top. I’m sure I will manage a lot more as I love dressing my children!

  235. Amy

    Ohh…I so, SEW, want this fabric. I have already checked our local shop and they have not ordered it, but I already bought the new patterns and want to make then all, with a quilt as well….Can’t wait to order more on-line…..

  236. A spring quilt ofcourse!- the colours are so light and airy, it just screams “make me!”

  237. annie

    I will be sewing LOTS of quilt for the newest baby to join our family…..January can not come soon enough!!!!!

  238. Tracy

    As my late summer sewing consisted of numerous items for my daughter (jumprope dress, 2+2 blouse with sailboat pants, lengthened, to match, among other things) I plan on sewing some sandbox pants for my boy and maybe even a winter coat. So glad that Oliver + S has provided me with some wonderful boy pattern options; they are RARE! Speaking of boy patterns, how about a nice blazer? Good for Easter or Christmas outfits. I don’t think one exists…

  239. jadestar

    I love the new range of fabric you have come out with. I’vebeen very taken with your designs ever since I came across them. I live in the UK so they are not so easy to get my hands on. As regards what I’ll besewing this season, as much as possible. On the list of ongoing projects is an evening dress, a party dress for my sister, and strangely enough, I’m helping a friend to sew some cassocks as her husband is becoming a vicar soon. These jelly rollswill be very welcome, as I want to try my hand at quilting. So fingers crossed.

  240. grace

    a couple of 2+2 blouses, 3 matching bedtime story pajamas, and a simple patch quilt to keep my toddler warm! yikes, just remembered the placemats and table runner… peasaht tunics for the babe… t shirt quilt for friend… oh dear.

  241. Torey

    Saw the cutest little dress patern the other day that called for a jelly roll. Starting on a few Christmas outfits for my grandaughter and looking forward to starting spring sewing with the City Weekend fabrics!

  242. sahmcolorado

    Oh how fun! I just finished a 2+2 blouse a couple days ago. Today I’m sewing the hopscotch knit top to go with a lazy days skirt I made. In line are: 2 Jump Rope Dresses, Music Class Skirt to match the 2+2 blouse, Sailboat pants and matching 2+2 blouse, Tea Party Dress as a jumper in japanese import canvas, and the Music Box Dress view A without flaps in brocade for a formal dance. Oh – and probably a couple of nature walk tops. I better get off the computer and get sewing!

  243. Oh Joy! This fall I’m planning on sewing a Jump Rope Dress for my daughter! Still in the fabric selection phase.

  244. Ckay

    A couple of skirts for my girls and a blouse or 2 for me. As long as I can keep the serger that I borrowed from my mom. Here’s hoping she doesn’t get bit by the sewing bug while I’m still in posession of it. πŸ˜‰

  245. Valerie

    What an awesome give away! Love your site! The ‘crafter’ in me wants to add a little something homemade to my Christmas gifts this year. Thinking of a table runner and some coasters for my sweet nieces and their families! This jelly roll would be a perfect start! Thanks!

  246. ASM_Blue

    Not really sure if international entries count, but still this is too much fun to miss….
    I’ll be sewing my 2 1/2-years old fall/winter wardrobe almost exclusively with O+S patterns (and city weekend fabric for most clothes): Music box jumper is a current favourite and is on the top of the list. Next, some skirts (hopscotch, Sunday brunch, 2+2, music class and sailboat), tunics/shirts (2+2, music class), tops (sailboat and hopscotch) and more dresses (jump rope, puppet show and the brand new school photo), Pjs (bed time stories and nature walk+hopscotch)) and jackets (school days and a Sunday brunch) – lots of sewing, I know. Her 2-borthers will be getting bedtime stories PJs and Schooldays jackets (I don’t sew as much for boys :-(. If I manage a couple of sketchbook shirts and nature walk pullovers will be added to my listing. ;-))

  247. Maude LagacΓ©

    For this winter, I’m making a Schoolday jacket for my 4 years old daughter, and a serie of Sailboat tops for my 2 years old boy. To complete my collection, I also asked my husban for a bunch of new Oliver+s patterns for christmas…

  248. Tasha

    Curtains! Lots and lots of curtains! My windows have been bare for too long. πŸ™‚

  249. I have lots of projects in the works ~ quilts, purses, and aprons for my shop, and I’m hoping to get some knit dresses done for my girls. Thanks for the chance!

  250. I plan to sew a couple of sailboat tops, of Nature Walk pullovers for my boys and dresses for daughter πŸ˜‰

  251. Carey

    I heart Oliver + S!

  252. Deb

    I have to sew all my eldest daughter’s new clothes (other than undies and socks) because she has such specific taste and has outgrown everything from last season. I’ve already made two pairs of bedtime story pjs–one flannel and one cotton–am now working on several dresses, a pair of cinch pants, and have been asked for some “twirly” skirts. Knits like the ones in City Weekend would be PERFECT for those. She loves knits, especially super soft ones. What a great collection!

  253. Love giveaways!! I just finished two short sleeve sketchbook shirts, a pair of sketchbook shorts, a pair of sandbox pants and bedtime story pajamas (in knit!) as a shower gift for my best friend’s soon to be born son. I also have another pair of bedtime story pajamas to make (for my other best friend) and a winter version of the tea party dress for a 1st birthday gift. So much to sew, but so little time!

  254. Jennie

    Halloween costumes have consumed my sewing table for far too long – I can’t wait to get back to dresses for my girls.

  255. I plan on sewing pillows, curtains, dresses….you name it…
    I can hardly wait!

  256. Ivy

    I am sewing some ice cream social dresses and tops for my girls. Lots of dresses for my oldest who refuses to wear pants! I’m so excited to see the new fabric in person!

  257. Bethany

    I am furiously sewing up some Christmas gifts and holiday decorations! But I have some oliver + S patterns calling my name from their spot in the pattern drawer, this fabric would be a great reason to pull them out!

  258. i made a hopscotch skirt and really would like to try the dress. i’m also making quilts and maybe some flannel p.j.’s for the kids.

  259. What am I not sewing? Baby quilts and wedding quilts and doll clothes are at the top of the list.

  260. Ann G

    I’m sewing mostly clothes- pants for a 3 year old, tunics for a 9 year old, pjs for a 6 year old, some string backpacks for friends walking in the 3 day breast cancer fundraiser, then after all that some post maternity shirts for a friend.

  261. Debby J

    Love Oliver + S patterns. Thanks to y’all, my granddaughter is the best dressed 3 year old in her preschool class.

  262. Stash Empress

    Oh so many things, don’t know where to start first —- 5 little granddaughters need wardrobes (the grandsons are on their own LOL) and my 10yo dd needs a whole new wardrobe too! (Any of which would be lovely in your wonderful new fabrics!)

  263. Mimi

    This is an awesome giveaway!! Count me in, please. I am working on small projects as gifts for family and friends. Thanks for your generosity.

  264. Penny

    After finishing part of a costume for my son–overalls that can become play clothes after Halloween–I’m going to work on my daughter’s quilt.

  265. Becka

    I am working on trick or treat bags, aprons and I Spy bags right now!

  266. crystal

    I would love to make a quilt for my little girl for Christmas.
    Love the new fabrics!!

  267. Elaine

    My goal is to sew myself some wool skirts for the fall and winter, and maybe finish it off with matching bag.

    My fall sewing (so far) includes 1 O+S Playdate dress, 1 O+S Jump Rope dress, 1 O+S School Photo dress, 2 smocked bishops and one baby daygown. I have all the fabric except for the School Photo dress, which would be lovely in any of the City Weekend fabrics… but which one!?!

Wish me luck!

Nothing for myself right now – maybe next season! πŸ™‚

  310. Marjorie

    I’m making one of your backpacks and a Halloween costume or two, and am hoping to have time to make the Sunday Brunch jacket and skirt.

  311. Oh my! I discovered O&S through a friend & I’m hooked! I have the Ice Cream dress pattern, Sketchbook shirt & shorts, & I ordered the Music box jumper the night it came out! I just need more fabric to fuel my O&S obsession!! I have three girls, so someone always needs a dress!

  312. Jennifer McKee

    I am sewing many a Nature Walk pant for my picky little daughter and her one-year-old brother — who likes anything he can smear applesauce on.
    However, these pants will not sustain us. My daughter demands dresses dresses dresses. I’m thinking that Hopscotch Dress may be next on our list…

  313. vicky

    I am currently working on some pin cushions and dresses/skirts. I love Moda Fabric!

  314. I have 5 little ones to sew for! I’ll be making the standard clothing, finishing a quilt (hopefully!) by my son’s 10th birthday… add to that a stack of cloth diapers and maybe even Mama will get a new dress, too!

  315. kelli

    Christmas ornaments. Mending (finally!). Finish that Quit before it gets too cold. Recycled Cashmere sweater throw.

  316. I’m in the middle of making tutus for my daughter’s 3rd birthday, a couple of your 2+2 tunics for her for the winter and the Sabrina skirt by Serendipity Studio.
    I love your patterns!

  317. rittaknapp

    I simply must make a pair of yellow jammies like the ones in the e-mail for my daughter. She would look absolutely adorable in them.

  318. I’m dying to get my hands on these knits!

  319. Sara

    I have too many projects! The few running through my head are: a quilt for our new baby, a quiet felt book, a doll, the hopscotch dress, and crib sheets – just to name a few! LOVE the city weekend collection. I’ve been having a hard time finding it though. Do you have a list of suggested sellers?

  320. Janene Stott

    We have a family tradition of new pajamas on Christmas Eve. I plan to make 12 pairs of pajamas and your new pattern for pajamas are darling and I can’t wait to buy the pattern!

  321. very excited to sew with city weekend! congrats on its release!
    i’m particularly interested in trying a jelly roll for the first time. i was thinking of sewing that quilt that was part of the fat quarterly quilt along & this collection would be perfect!

    have a great weekend πŸ™‚


  322. I think I have to make some pj’s for my daughters like the ones in the photo. Also, I’m quilting up a storm for my niece and nephews. There are so many project, I’m often not sure where to start, but I’d LOVE to get my hands on some of the City Weekend fabric.

  323. Melinda

    I have wanted to sew for years, but couldn’t work up the nerve to dive in until recently. You can find patterns EVERYWHERE for girls’ clothing, but I never found anything I fell in love with for my son until I found your website. Everything is designed beautifully! Anyway… right now I am working on some gifts for two great friends who are both having boys in January. But my goal is to gain enough experience and know my sewing machine well enough to make both of my children their own School Day coats.

  324. Caroline

    Sewing this season: Bat wings for Halloween costumes; tooth fairy pillow; snack bags; bibs. Whew!

  325. Heather Martino

    I’m somewhat new to sewing, so I may not be as fast as others, but I love your patterns and I’ll be making the bedtime stories pajamas for my infant son, and hope to make the Sunday Brunch jacket for my 4 year old daughter for Christmas. I had hoped to use the School Days pattern but it’s out of print. I’ve also got a couple of pillows and a purse to sew. We’ll see how it goes!

    PS I had a little trouble posting, because I couldn’t make out the code at the bottom (I’m really bad at those codes – guess I won’t make CIA) so I hope this isn’t a duplicate. πŸ™‚

  326. Jessica

    This season I am working on a cute paper-doll quilt for my daughter as a Christmas gift. She also is in need of some new “big girl” bedding, and I just love the City Weekend fabric, so I may be sewing up a comforter in that.

  327. Libby

    My sewing consists of bags for my daughter and both her daughters………fall dresses for the girls; blankets for their
    Christmas and now I can finally make pj’s also; love the pattern and can’t wait to get my hands on the City Weekend fabric. Printed off the “City Weekend” Blanket pattern (but that’ll be an after Christmas project; perhaps Valentine’s). And yes, I’ll be burning “the midnight oil”.

  328. Barbara

    Wonderful! Love the line and the blog!

  329. Anna

    Lately I’ve been recovering old cushions with new fabrics.
    But I can’t WAIT to make some things for my granddaughter with the adorable City Weekend fabrics! I love them so much I also want to make something for myself with one or two of them too. Really beautiful; love the colors, love the motifs, can’t wait to touch them.

  330. Jenna

    My fall sewing will be costumes first (princess, monkey & Yoda) and then quilts for each of my kiddos for Christmas. Should be fun!

  331. Annette

    I’m sewing up quilts for Christmas presents!

  332. Thanks for the giveaway!! I’m currently sewing an apron and a purse, and have a quilt and more purses in the pipeline. Also lots of clothes for my 5yo daughter. I love to sew!

  336. I’ve made three music box dresses. I want to try the Oliver + S shirtdress.

  337. Brenda

    I would love to have some City Weekend fabric, its so adorable! I’m a seamstress first but also love quilting,I would probably make a quilt for my girls bed with the fabric. As for what I’m planning to sew next, I have a Sunday Brunch jacket cut out and ready to sew; hopefully I’ll get at it this afternoon.

  338. Denise

    I am a fabric junkie and have been sewing far too long for me to remember!
    Currently I am sewing really groovy denim pants for my youngest child which features flared flounces. My youngest is mentally challenged so I try to scour for patterns with elastic waists, but still feature unique designs. Too many beautiful people like my Em (13 years old) end up wearing sweat pants because their bodies mature, yet they are mentally not prepared to zip and button challenging pant closures. Clothes are a special expression of our personalities. So… I noticed your patterns and awesome City Weekend fabrics, but have not had the opportunity to sew and design with them. As long as I am able my mission is to create beautiful clothes for Em and her friends.
    Thank you sew much for sharing your inspiration and passion!
    We need designers like you.

  339. Linda

    I’m sewing quilts, quilts and more quilts!

  340. I have a little jacket cut in the yellow dot interlock I am excited about. It really is SO soft and lovely. I also have the musicbox dress pattern traced and I am looking forward to it. Fabulous giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  341. Holly

    My girls have requested more matching girl/doll dresses (they loved their popover sundresses this summer), so I’ll be making some casual clothes for them and their dolls, and I want to make a new coverlet for my 2-year-old’s bed because she’ll be moving from her crib to a toddler bed soon.

  342. Laura

    I am sewing SO many things this season! I am about to begin the Music Box Dress for my two girls. I’ve been making pants for all three of my kids AND I’m about begin Halloween costumes.

  347. Jennifer

    I just finished my very first Oliver + S pattern, a Jump Rope dress for my (17 mos. old) daughter. I’m just finishing sewing a few tunic tops for her (a Sew Liberated pattern), and next I plan to start the Music Box Jumper. I just got it in the mail last week; I’m so excited! And now that City Weekend is out, I think I may need to order the Hopscotch Skirt and Top and maybe the 2×2 Blouse and Skirt as well. I just got a sewing machine and started sewing in February. Thanks so much for your incredibly clear, wonderful patterns. I’m literally learning to sew with y’all! Thanks for the opportunity to win, as well. Cheers!

I’m already on my second school photo dress and want to try the hopskotch dress in one of your cute knits. But, my local store only stocked a few so I have to find another way to feed my habit.

  361. Sarah

  363. Erin Waters

    I am entering Christmas Sewing season and I have a lot of projects to get started on for my kids (2 girls, 1 boy).

  398. Well . . . it seems I managed to buy quite a number of patterns whilst in possession of a large glass of wine (well, tbh a number were consumed on that particular evening) Amongst others I’m hoping to sew the ice cream dress and the jump rope this autumn/winter . . . but my big passion is the school days coat – tragically discontinued. I am currently cutting this out for my twins and 4 yr old. I’m loving the whole process. Even the rustle of the pattern paper.

  399. I am always sewing something for charity! Whether it’s quilts for babies/toddlers or Christmas stockings for kids in need or toiletry bags for women’s shelters, it’s always something that can be used by someone who needs these items more than me.

  400. AJ

    Well, I just bought the ice cream dress pattern, and still have the bubble dress pattern uncut! Now that it’s milder weather here in Arizona, it’s time to stitch up some spring-ish clothing. We’re so backward here!!

  407. Sharna

    I love sewing pj’s for my kids for some reason noone ever see them. But we just moved and need to decorate the new kids room, they are begging for quilts so I’ll be quilting this season.

  408. We are coming into summer in Australia, so I am getting ready to make some birthday party dresses!

  409. I have several quilts that I want to finish. I started on the other night for my 5 month old grand daughter, when I get that finished, I will be making diapers for my 1 month old grand son. Then I will move onto a dress for my grand daughter. I know my youngest son wants me to start his Eye Spy quilt and his sewing lessons. I have a few bags that I would like to get to also. One is a strip (jelly roll) bag.

    Thank you for this opportunity.

  410. Coming into summer here in Oz so I’m making shorts for the boy and the girl as well as embellishing some t-shirts to match. For myself I’m planning on making a summer skirt or two! And some boxers for the man.

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  411. Robin

    LOL, do you mean what am I planning to sew besides O+S patterns? I have some denim ready to make my little girl some jeans with the sailboat pants patterns, and am also itching to make the hopscotch shirt and skirt as well as the school photo dress. Other than that, I’m hoping to do some sewing out of some Japanese pattern books for me and/or my daughter.

  412. Sandra

    I have just finished making the music class skirt and shirt. I altered the pattern a little, made it longer for my long waisted granddaughter by adding a shirt length tail to it, and I belted it in at the waist at her request. It is adorable! She now wants me to make it longer and in plaid so she can wear it as a dress with leggings. I actually have a little 7 year old designer, I think. I have made the jump rope dresses for both granddaughters in denim – one plain denim, the other denim with pink and red hearts embroidered on it. I will make the music class skirt in several fabrics because the girls love the skirt!!!

  413. Amber

    I can’t wait to gave some of that fabric winging it’s way to Australia. I’m currently sewing swingset tops for my gal & refashioning business shirts intoshorts for my boy.

  414. Great giveaway! I will be sewing Christmas ornaments and felt food playsets.

  415. CC

    I’m planning to get started on some cot quilts for soon-to-arrive babies (any day now) but have been distracted by sewing popover sundresses (for my 2 year old and some little friends who are turning 2). Summery skirts are also on my list.

  416. Melissa (& Adele)

    Inspired by the beautiful fabrics, easy to follow patterns and sharing of ideas with my Mum’s group friends I have rediscovered my sewing machine and am loving it! Lucky Adele … she now has some beautiful & unique dresses, pants, skirts, jackets etc. In prep for summer ‘ve just finished her ice-cream dress, popover sundress and the music box jumper for her 1st birthday party in Nov. Next is a quilt for a big bed, a hopscotch skirt, a ruffled halter, another ice-cream dress & top and some bedroom accessories. Phew, just a few things on the list!

  417. Sandbox pants and more sandbox pants for my fast growing boys. Probably as shorts though as we’re heading into Summer here in Oz. Also hoping to finish my first ever quilt. And play around with some jersey knit fabric clothing for my kids. Oh and it’d be great to finish the tea party playsuit I cut out oh, last summer…

  418. Addie

    I can’t wait to see City Weekend at my local fabric store! This fall I’m making some baby/toddler gifts — the Tea Party playsuit is a favorite, as well as sandbox pants outfit. I would like to thy the Ice Cream Social dress next.

  419. linda

    My first time with Oliver + s! I haven’t sewn since high school but finding having a little one around inspiring and exciting… Ice cream dress and sailor suit are on the way in the post and can’t wait to start!

  420. I plan yo sew garden cushions.

  421. I’m definitely planning on making some of your knit patterns and I may even try getting them through BurdaStyle! That’s a great idea btw. I’m also going to make a bunch of stuff for ME which doesn’t happen so often, it usually ends up being easier and less fraught in a ‘does my bum look big in this?’ way to make clothes for my daughter. But I deserve nice things too so I’m going to dedicate a week or so to myself.

  422. Melissa (& Adele)

    Inspired by the beautiful fabrics, easy to follow patterns and sharing of ideas with friends in my mothers group I have rediscovered my sewing machine and am loving it. Lucky Adele! In preparation for summer I have just finished her an icecream dress, popover sundress, and music box jumper for her 1st birthday party in late Nov. Next on the list is a quilt for a big bed, another icecream dress and top, a ruffled halter and a hopscotch skirt. Phew, that’ll keep me busy!

  423. Ooo, yummy! Maybe I can make a quilt to tuck in my Bedtime Story pjs clad girls! Can’t wait to touch these fabrics! Winning the jelly roll or layer cKe would be so fantastic since it may be the only way for me to get at these Down Under!

  424. delia

    I have a City Weekend charm pack and would love to build on that! I’m currently working on a square in square block quilt.

  425. I’m planning on making lots more quilts! And some new cushion covers and maybe window coverings for our house!

    I am planning to FINALLY sew the Birthday Party dress. It was the first O+S pattern I bought, and the last (to date) to be sewn. Hopefully Badskirt will run another O+S sew-a-long and I will also be making whatever pattern that is. Also I am waiting for my School Photo pattern to arrive so that I can learn how to put in an invisible zip. I’de love to win as it is hard to find the City Weekend fabric here in OZ.

    I am sewing holiday aprons and tableware for our guild fundraiser.

  437. Sue Whelan

    Looking forward to trying my first Oliver + S pattern for my two-year-old granddaughter. I have three stashed but will probably use the Sailboat top and pants. The interlock looks lovely. Children can never have enough knits.

    I’m planning on making a quilt using City Weekend. I bought several packs of charms and would love to try using the jelly rolls, layer cakes or whatever. I love the fabric! Thanks for the giveaway.

  439. I made the birthday dress from Oliver + s for my 3 year old grand daughter and she loved it, especially as I made the bow and hem lining in her favorite color, green! I found the most delightful “fairy” fabric to make another dress, and the 2 + 2 Blouse and pleated skirt pattern is calling to me! There just aren’t enough hours in the day!

  440. I plan on making a few quilts, along with some outfits for my newborn!

  532. Carrie Alexander

    Holy Moley…what do I want to make this “season”? Pretty much anything that strikes my fancy at the same time I see fabric! I’m an “impulsive sew-er”, someone who lets the fabric call to me. Hard to say what I’m going to come up with next until I see the fabric, LOL!

    I’m sewing a Lazy Days for Halloween, the School Photo Dress in silk for the holidays. I am going to take a class on sewing with knits although I’m not sure what pattern I’ll be working with yet. Can’t wait to use the City Weekend fabrics for that project.

  543. shiela

    I am in love with your fabrics. I am starting my holiday sewing which includes pjs and outfits for my 6 grandchildren. I have actually started sewing for myself again and would love to get a hold of your knits so I can make me a pair of pajamas. I love your pajama pattern so I am going to try and figure out how to make some big enough to fit me.

  544. KimT

    We have declared this year Handmade Holidays! So I am working on sewing totes, earwarmers, scarves and other gifts for friends and family. I am finishin costumes for my girls (a rainbow and a chipmunk) and am on the look-out for the best fabrics and patterns for them for fall. Yours are definitely my favorites!

  545. Jessie

    I have a million half-finished projects as usual, but this season I’m committed to making doll quilts for my goddaughter and her sister, and to finishing up some pants I started for myself 8 years ago!

  546. Linda

    I’m working on pajama pants for the holidays; dresses for my niece’s birthday; dresses for my daughters; and a some new skirts/dresses for me.

  547. Rose

    I’m eyeing up the hopscotch skirt for sure, plus really need to finish little miss’ quilt started a year ago!

  548. Marla F

    A quilt for the baby is almost done and then on to Christmas gifts: napkins, totes, pjs, the list goes on and on…! Maybe I’ll even get a skirt done for myself, hmm….

  549. Anne

    I’m currently making a blue kitten halloween costume for my daughter (everything must be blue!!), a rain coat for myself and cutting fabric for a Christmas advent calendar. I’d love to make your quilt design for this fabric line – with a blue backing of course.

  550. I have lots of projects in mind, especially a coat for my daughter!

  551. Shannon F.

    We have a lot of babies being born in the coming months, so I have baby quilts planned! I also just bought my first needles and skein this week, we’ll see how that goes!

  552. Sarah

    Mostly clothes for my 3 year old. I have also been making things I realize I need for our new baby (hats, car seat covers, toy blankets, etc). Fun fun fun!

  553. Rebekah

    What a lovely collection! This fall, I’m making our brand new baby his first Halloween costume and (since he was over 10 pounds when he was born) some nice button ups using Oliver + S’s City Weekend pattern!

  554. Jenn Sonnenberg

    I love the new selection and the new patterns! I’m hoping to make a quilt for my daughter and new pjs all around (a Christmas tradition). Thanks for such an exciting giveaway!

  555. I’m dying to try the school photo dress but I made a solemn vow to my husband that I would not put another pattern into the waiting line, unless I had finished up last year’s winter projects. So I have some 2 + 2’s, and American Girl doll matching outfits to finish up before I can jump in. I can’t wait to make that adorable little pleated skirt out of chocolate with fuschia dots! It’s just not quite chilly enough to get started yet.

  556. I am keen to sew a quit for each of my boys, for them to hopefully become something special they pass on to their children one day.

  557. I am wanting to make each of my sons a quilt for them to hopefully pass on to their children one day

  558. Hi, I have the new hopskotch pattern coming in the mail so plan to sew up quite a few dresses for my 2 year old who loves anything pink!

  559. Becky

    Just got the hopscotch pattern so I want to make that for my daughter. Too cute!

  560. Oh, thank you for the giveaway. I have yet to see the line in person, but it looks beautiful online.

    Since I’m off the hook for my daughter’s Halloween costume thanks to hand-me-downs, I can get a head start on sewing my daughter’s Music Box jumper for Christmas. I’m usually Last-Minute Lisa, so I can surely use a little extra time.

  561. I’m trying to finish off some spring pants for my four year old daughter and 1 year old son. I’m also hoping to make another Oliver & S bubble dress for my daughter before she out grows the pattern!

  562. The new patterns are great! The Nature Top & Pants pattern is perfect for comfy pants for my sons. The top is cute, too! Thanks!

  563. I am about to move from the country (Cape Cod) to the city (Boston), and I am really looking forward to working with the new city weekend knits–when I am moved in and able to have a city weekend!

  564. kitty

    I’m working on warm pants for a crawling baby, beanbags, and soft patchwork play blocks.

  565. Sarah

    I am participating in a couple of craft fairs soon and I will be making baby blankets and shopping totes mostly. I also want to do a lot of sewing for christmas gifts. I hope I get it all done.


  566. What a lovely giveaway! Thank you. I’m planning to sew two sleeping sacs, one for each of my daughters (3.5y and 2y) and a woolen skirt for myself. I’m also hoping I will finish a second shirt for my husband… I already think it is too ambitious but that’s the plan!

  567. Lisa L

    This season I am sewing beautiful twirl skirts for my teenage daughter! Of course she picked the fabric and pattern!!


  568. Let’s see…after moving apartments (in Manhattan) and having baby #3 all in the next six weeks…I plan to start working on another tea party sundress for my 4 year old for next spring/summer. She LOVED the last one I made and still asks why she can’t wear it (size 2T). But if I don’t win this giveaway (oh how I’d love to) I’ll be down at Purl soon enough! It’s there, right?! Love your stuff, Liesl!

  569. Lynn Poulin

    Where to start…! It will definitely be something for our 2 year-old granddaughter. She knows what “Grandma dresses” are, and some days, only “Grandma dresses” will do.

  570. morgan

    I am working on 7 quilts this fall. They’re all different and they get more challenging as I keep working through them. It’s been fun getting to know how to do sew with new techniques and so many different fabric collections.

  571. Wow…love those new fabrics! PJs for the entire family this xmas will be pieced out of the new collection and I just HAVE to make a bistro red park long sleeve blouse with contrast cuffs/under collar (inspired by Robert Graham) for me. Good job on the new collection..it’s a WOW!

  572. Nancy Eddins

    The fall/winter season is my sewing season. I love the feel of fancy Christmas fabrics as they slide through my scissors. A princess dress for Halloween, a mermaid for dress-up, some cozy lounge pants for the entire family, a fancy Christmas dress and at least one corduroy jumper. I haven’t decided on Christmas gifts, but I’m sure there will be a few stitched up here and there.

  576. kate labare

    what do i PLAN to sew or what will actually get done? lol! i always have so many plans, but with two little ones the done list is much shorter… i REALLY, REALLY hope to finish birthday crowns for both little ones, a quilt for one, and new christmas stockings this season:)

  590. Emily P

    Jumprope dresses number 10 and 11 are first. Then two Halloween Ice Cream tops, and another music class blouse. After those it will be either a school days coat, playdate dress, or hopscotch set – I haven’t decided yet.

After this, I will be making little girl’s dresses from my collection of vintage patterns from the Teens and Early Twenties for my friends with little ones. The vintage look of the Ice Cream Dress is what first caught my eye in a fabric store in Anchorage, Alaska.

  631. Diana

    I just taught / am teaching myself how to sew. This started a few months ago so every project is a new adventure. I really can’t get enough of it! I’m constantly coming up with new ideas. With this fabric the possibilities are endless – some cute handbags, 50’s style aprons(maybe a patchwork apron), baby clothes (lots of friends having babies!) and/or a quilt! My goal is to make homemade Christmas gifts this year (at least most of them) so this would help a great deal! Thanks for the opportunity!

  632. GothamMom

    Hmm, on the sewing table are:

    2 Doll quilts (for my girl who is “5 11/12ths”)
    1 TinTin costume (for my adorable 16 mo)
    Waaaay too much mending. Feh.
    A baby quilt to finish for a “baby” who is 4..must get that done.
    Clothes, patterns picked, and fabric selected, for my 2 week old niece!

  633. so we added chickens

    This season I plan to make at least one handbag as a gift and probably one for me, some new pjs for my son, a little dress or romper for my daughter, a quilt (or two if they are small) and maybe, if I get the nerve, a dress for myself. I love this line and I can imagine at least a few of the above items made from some of these designs.

  634. I am planning to make the Liverpool shirt and a fall coat for myself.
    There are more babies on their way to friends of mine so I see some Oliver + S in my near future as well.
    Oh, and I am going to whip up a dozen or so little gift bags for a special project of mine.

  635. kate g.

    i fear that i’m being a bit ambitious but so far my list consists of: 2 tea party dresses for the little girls of friends, a few pairs of sandbox pants for my little guy, a music box dress per daughter’s request, kimono flannel pjs for both in time for christmas and hopefully a top for me. i guess that’s it:)

  636. Brigit Dermott

    I plan to make a quilted cover for my sewing machine and a full size quilt. I have the ice cream dress pattern that I plan to use in the spring, too. I usually sew some Christmas tree ornaments and I think I might try to make drawstring bags for gifts instead of using wrapping paper!

  637. I want to sew a dress for my newest baby girl!

  638. CherylK

    I’m working on a winter coat for my daughter, quilts for my nieces, and a quilt for my sister’s wedding.

  640. Elley

    Beautiful fabrics!
    Right now I am sewing two sets of the Music Class Blouse and Skirt pattern for my two youngest daughters. The blouses are matching, but they chose two different colors for the skirts – they are turning out really cute. I have to say, this is the first time I have tried one of your patterns and I love all the time saving tips you have used! (love being able to cut strips of interfacing with the rotary cutter!) lol – and other projects? I have a few quilts on the burner as well as an embroidered pillow, a table runner, and some appliqued towel sets. . .and I would love to try another Oliver + S pattern. πŸ™‚

  641. Shannon Burchard

    I am looking at a shirt and maybe a coat for my son as well as a dress and a skirt for my little girl…and costumes for both:)

  642. Tracey

    Gorgeous colours!
    I’ll be making another pair of the todder pjs and will attempt to make some tshirts for my nearly 2yr old daughter.

  643. amy

    oooh, beautiful fabrics! after I’m done with the Halloween costumes, I plan on making a few critters from Wee Wonderfuls new book, some practical napkins and food baggies for lunch boxes and eventually new stockings for the family this holiday season.

  644. Mmmm… So pretty. I started sewing when I had my youngest, a girl, as I was so inspired by the cute little girl dresses I knew I could make. This season, I plan to sew more for my oldest, a boy.

  646. CarolineB

  648. Jenn Gray

    I’m working on a number of Ottobre patterns including a pinafore and a pair of overalls. I only just started sewing so I don’t have a lot on my plate to begin with. I’ve just started working with knits for the first time and would love to give these a try. Thanks.

  649. Lots of house items to give as holiday gifts, a rain parka for myself, and some clothes for my daughter and son. Can’t wait to dig in to the O & S patterns.

  652. Wow! Nearly 650 comments. There’s a lot of people who love that fabric. πŸ™‚

  653. bettina

    These fabrics are beautiful! I’d use them for little projects, like bags and purses, great for christmas gifts, too. Also for embellish some simple solid projects. Or they would inspire me to try myself on quilts, who knows? πŸ™‚

    I like to sew quilts and clothes and the occasional over-the-shoulder bag. Just started the Jump Rope dress. thanks
