    I ordered a sample from Kids in the Garden. It’s not as soft or as low profile than the hook and loop Carter’s uses, but it is better than what I’ve been able to find in my local stores.

    @justsewit – When I was a girl (8 to 10) I adored sewing clothes for my Samantha doll. I’ll admit even now it’s still impulse to use scraps from my own projects for doll clothes 🙂

    Love love love.

    I would prefer being able to send them off on a plotter on a large sheet of paper than on a dozen or more 8x11s that need to be taped together.

    I also like romylou’s idea of a 1″x1″ square (or however many cm) to ensure the pattern prints properly.

    Carol,

    Thanks for the response. I did find the link and image, but my computer resolution is too coarse for me to read the size labels :

    I just started tracing my pattern and came across this error. Alas, my pattern copy is missing an errata, and I just can’t quite read the sizes listed on the piece 4 shoulder. Is the 18-24 months the double-dot-dash line (labeled “2T” on the shoulder) or the dash-dash line (labeled “18-24 months)?

    Thank you for the info! Look’s like I’ll be going to JoAnn’s for lunch today 🙂

    Oh, this rumor makes me most unhappy! The larger size of this pattern remains on my wish list because I simply haven’t yet needed to larger sizes. Based on what I’ve read on line, I’d hope an errata explaining how to customize the length or tailor the width of the shirt would be sufficient. Worst case, I’d much rather a nice, boy’s shirt pattern that needs some muslin testing than to not have a boy’s pattern at all!

    I love the Family Reunion dress with its sleeves and pintucks, but I’m disappointed there aren’t any new patterns for boys.

    The book is absolutely stunning! I spent drooled over every project and now have a list a mile long of things I want to make for the children in my acquaintance =D

    Hi, my name’s Janell, and I’m from Austin, TX. I just joined the forums today, but I’ve been lurking for a few months. I’ll admit that I’m relieved to see Amy in this forum because, like her, I don’t have any little ones to sew for… nor nieces… nor nephews. I learned of Oliver + S through Google Reader and fell in love with the patterns and styles. My first motivation to purchase a Oliver + S pattern was when the School Days jacket was originally going out of print; I was certain someday in the future I would regret not owning that pattern. Shortly thereafter, I purchased the Bubble Dress pattern for the same reasons.

    I began sewing when I was 8 and became quite accomplished by 12. Primarily due to shortages of time, a lack of money, and a frequent lack of interest, I have only created the occasional skirt or costume in the 15+ years since.

    Just this weekend I finished making the Bubble Dress. I wanted a project to relearn my sewing skills and preferred a project that would use less than a yard of fabric. The Bubble Dress was the perfect choice. It came together much more quickly than I thought it would and the instructions did a beautiful job in guiding me through the process. My next project will be something for myself, but I’m definitely planning on making another oliver + s creation in the future!
