introducing Lisette

Since we first started Oliver + S, the most frequent request we’ve received is for sewing patterns in women’s sizes.

And so, at long last, we’re happy to announce the launch of a new brand of sewing patterns for women: Lisette. We hope you enjoy them. You can get all the details at




  1. Woohoo! I’m off to check out Lisette right now. Thanks, Liesl. I love your patterns and could use a little help making clothing to fit me. The main pattern companies always lose me halfway through and I end up winging it.

    I have to tell you, since I stumbled across your blog a few months ago, I have fallen in love with your patterns. I am all set to make my kids several things from your book, and my little boy is getting your sailboat pants for his Easter outfit. Now, for the first time since I started sewing, I actually want to sew for MYSELF! I LOVE these patterns — they are so stylish but classic! THANK YOU!

  29. YAY! I can’t wait!

  30. Allison

    All I can say is HELL YEAH! I’m so excited about this!

  31. dora

    Oh My goodness!!! I was looking for some simple patterns for me and my older daughter
    at our local fabric store and they had these, I should have known they were by Mrs. Liesl! Thank you, Mrs. Liesl, these patterns are so great and very clean and classic. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! Luv you and your talent! To know that I just discovered you for my baby girl was great enough but this is a cherry on top ( jumping joyfully) wohoooo!!!!

  32. According to tracking, my first two (of many, I’m sure) Lisette patterns is out for delivery. Oh, wait! I just saw the mail truck. Gotta go!

  33. That’s fabulous! Congratulations.

  34. Yay! My daughter is too big for your small patterns but I would love to make something for her, and for me from your beautiful designs. I’m very excited to read this news 🙂

  35. Melanie

    This is really exciting. These designs are classy and feature the interesting details we’ve come to love in Oliver +s patterns. I can’t wait to see try the passport jacket. Or to see what the fabric looks like!

  36. Eva

    Wow! Congratulations! This is really great and the patterns look gorgeous!

  37. I just love what you do and create for all of us!
    By the way, I’m doing a sew along with a friend through your book – we began today with the bucket hat and in 2 weeks will make the red riding hood cape. I took my 6 year old daughter to the fabric store and let her since of style go wild. Her cape will be in a garish hot pink baby corduroy with an sparkly dragon fly lining – I can’t wait to see how it comes together!

  38. Fantastic! Going to look right now!
