    @todd if sewing for you means I “have to” take a trip to Spain for fittings then yes, I will volunteer. Can’t make any promises about the quality of my work, post-sangria. Might find my husband and daughter suddenly making themselves invaluable as tracers of patterns and stitchers of buttons.

    I am almost done a ‘Goldstream Peacoat’ for my mister. It is gorgeous (thanks to the help of my excellent sewing teacher). Next on my list is the ‘Newcastle Cardigan’. I have tried a men’s shirt, first I made the O+S Sketchbook shirt for my daughter to practice,all went well, then tried to make a matching shirt for Dad for Father’s Day last year. It still isn’t finished, I can not get the sleeves to fit! I was desperately wishing for a Liesl pattern!

    I second the previous comment that the O+S patterns have such a great, classic look that I know I would be buying Liesl’s men’s patterns! I like to know that I can invest in some extra nice fabric and the garment to be worn until it is thread bare.

    Patterns for blokes would be wonderful from the O + S team. Short/long sleeve shirt; smart shorts (second the idea of flat front waistband with elastic back, pj bottoms, shaving jacket/dressing gown. I not interested in items requiring knits but I’m sure many women will be. PS. a pattern for making a tie would be great, too.

    This would be great. I currently use thread theory but would love some other options. Some of theirs are kind of slim fitting.

    would also like to add to those whose boys are growing out of the o+S sizes… would appreciate direction for jacket/blazer/layering options for tweens and teens unisex/all genders — i guess fba’s as well as adjustments for wider arms for guys.
