2015 in review: new oliver + s patterns

I don’t know if it is just me, but does 2016 seem to be flying by super fast? It’s already the first week of February and we are just now wrapping up our “2015 blog year in review” series. Today we’re closing the series with the two new Oliver + S patterns were released last year. We have a big round-up, wait until you see all the wonderful things people have been sewing!

2015 Oliver + S sewing patterns

Let’s start out with the Butterfly Skirt + Blouse, shall we? Here are some quick clicks for you:

The Butterfly Skirt is quite possibly my favorite Oliver + S pattern to sew. Yes, I enjoy sewing the Roller Skate Dress and the Popover Sundress, but the Butterfly Skirt is ridiculously easy to make. And you’ll see how quick it is to put together in our Butterfly Skirt sew-along. And don’t forget the post about adding an adjustable elastic waist to the Butterfly Skirt, it’s quite simple to do.

What have other Oliver + S fans been making with this pattern? See here.

    Perfect timing. I just bought these two patterns (have them all now) and was looking for inspiration. Got it now, thanks!

  4. I love those patterns! I made the butterfly blouse and skirt for my daughter soon after it released and to date have made two parachute polos for my son! Thanks for the great pattern!
