    In case anyone else is looking I found a pattern on Jalie. I love the metro shirt package here at Olive and S and am looking forward to making those into hoodies for my crew for Christmas.

    I wonder if any of you have ideas for me. I am sewing for two petite men and am really coming up short when i look for patterns for them.

  • Great! Thanks Liesl for the news. Can’t wait until it’s out.

  • I just bought my first Oliver+S pattern. Am impressed with the attention to detail. My garment for my daughter turned out top notch. My question for you all is about the Sketchbook pattern. My son (14 yo) is too big for this pattern, boo! Was wondering if anyone knows of a pattern by Oliver + S or similar (something top notch) that I can make a…[Read more]
