Today we’re happy to introduce you to our newest blog contributor, Rachel Le Grand from Nest Full of Eggs. You might remember Rachel from some of her previous contributions here. We originally featured her two color blocked Roller Skate Dresses in Liesl’s color blocking tutorial last summer. Then Rachel applied her color blocking expertise to her tenth (!) Fairy Tale Dress and provided a fun tutorial on the process. Kristin invited Rachel back last fall to talk about her favorite Oliver + S pattern, and she returned earlier this year with a great idea for using our free Reversible Bucket Hat pattern to make a skirt for an 18-inch doll. We’ve always loved Rachel’s work and her blog, and we’re excited that she’ll be joining us regularly on the Oliver + S blog. Here’s Rachel to introduce herself.
Hello, I’m Rachel and I look forward to working as a contributor in this space. I live in Minnesota with my husband and three children. You will find me in the discussion forums as nestfullofeggs and over in the flickr group as saganaga.
I thought it would be fun to share some interesting facts about me. I started sewing with Oliver + S patterns back in December 2009. Something that Oliver + S and I have in common is that we both contributed to The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook. If I were an Oliver + S paper doll, I would choose to wear the School Photo Dress. I share the same initials as Ralph Lauren. And I cannot live without my dark chocolate sewing snacks!
I would love to hear from you about what your favorite thing about the Oliver + S blog is. Also, is there anything you would like to see here in the future? Please do share your thoughts in the comment section below.
